Kai Havertz was aware of Jurgen Klopp's achievements before Chelsea faced Liverpool in a Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge.
The newly-signed £70million attacking midfielder heaped praises on his compatriot knowing what his new club would expect during the encounter at Stamford Bridge.
The Germany international had predicted that Klopp will do everything within his reach to defeat their rivals in a quest to defend Liverpool's Premier League title.
"He is a big manager and he has achieved a lot in Liverpool.
"He won the Premier League and the Champions League. I've watched all of this and you can only say congratulations.
"I think he is hungry and he wants to win more titles and that's the reason why we need to play our best football on Sunday afternoon," Mirror quoting Havertz.
As predicted by Havertz, Liverpool went away with maximum points with Senegalese striker Sadio Mane scoring both goals at Stamford Bridge.
Andreas Christensen was shown a red card for a professional foul on Mane before the break and Havertz was sacrificed for a defender at the restart of the second half.
A few minutes after the break, Klopp's men capitalized on the one-disadvantage of Chelsea as Mane scored a header to put the champions ahead.
Mane then scored one of the easiest goals in his career when Kepa Arrizabalaga committed a schoolboy error.
Klopp said in a post-match interview with BBC:
"Everybody was involved and had a real hand in this result. I loved both goals for different reasons; the first how we played it was really good, top cross, the movement from Sadio in front of the opponent.
"The next goal, we did it the whole game: chase the goalkeeper and when you get the reward it's especially nice."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Kai Havertz has claimed that he needs more time to adapt to the pattern of play in the Premier League following his £75.8million price tag.
The German midfielder made his debut for the Blues in the 3-1 over Brighton could not justify his hefty price tag at the AMEX Stadium.
But the 21-year-old admitted that he was not at his best and insisted that he needs time to get things going in the English topflight division.
