Liverpool boss Klopp: Chelsea striker Diego Costa is world class!

Jurgen Klopp has labelled Diego Costa as a world class striker ahead of this weekend's clash between Liverpool and Chelsea.

The Reds boss believes opposition fans only dislike Costa because he is such a quality player.

"He is world class and that is the best thing football fans can say about you. If other supporters love you it is not a good sign," said Klopp

"He is a real warrior on the pitch, he uses his body all the time and that is a quality. He was nearly unstoppable against Swansea."

Costa has scored four goals in as many Premier League matches under Antonio Conte this season including a brace in last weekend's 2-2 draw at Swansea City.
