Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that his side faces another difficult test against a rejuvenated Sunderland on Saturday.
The Black Cats currently on a two game winning streak having won successive matches, away to Bournemouth and at home to Hull City to climb off the foot of the table for the first time this season.
They are 19th in the English Premier League log.
And Klopp who rued his side's goalless draw against Southampton at the Saint Mary’s, picked out the duo of Jermain Defoe and Victor Anichebe as the big threats for his side going into the game.
"It's like the points are already counted," Klopp began during his pre-match conference," Klopp remarked.
"It will be the opposite of easy. Very difficult. That's what we have to show.
"Everything is prepared for a good football game – if we do our job. Until now it's good, but the next job is already there. We have to do the good things again."
Klopp added: "Everyone knows everything about Defoe. Good striker, experienced, still really quick.
"And especially Anichebe. A physical, strong guy. Maybe they have played better games than against Hull and Bournemouth but they won. They have confidence now."
