Wenger - Klopp is a great manager

Arsène Wenger and Jurgen Klopp

Arsene Wenger has described Jurgen Klopp as a "great manager".

The pair will face each other in the Premier League for the first time when Arsenal visit Anfield on Wednesday evening.

Wenger admits he favours a different playing style to Klopp but feels the German's approach deserves both praise and respect.

"I think he is a great manager but we have different styles," he said. "You have to respect that and you can only be successful by [having] your own style and personality, and everybody has a different personality.

"But I think he done very well in the job and he has an opportunity to integrate a big club. That is where people will assess that later.

"You have to play with your style and what you believe is strong. He is a great manager and he will do that.

"We know that Liverpool will be absolutely up for it, we will be up for it.

"It is down to us to be very strong in the challenges to make sure that doesn't happen."
