Liverpool assistant manager Peter Krawietz has picked out Arsenal, Chelsea and Brighton as teams he expects to see impressive performances from next season, hailing the work of the three managers in charge of the sides.

The Reds have proved themselves to be comfortably the best side in the Premier League this campaign, but is expecting other teams to improve next season.

Krawietz has hailed Frank Lampard and Mikel Arteta’s impacts at Chelsea and Arsenal, impressed with the path they have their teams heading down.

Brighton have also caught the eye of the German, and although he might not be expecting the Seagulls to be challenging at the top of the table, he feels Graham Potter is working on an excellent plan of action.

‘I see first and foremost some teams that are in the process of developing their footballing skills,’ Krawietz told and SPOX. ‘What has happened at Chelsea over the course of the season makes it clear that they will be a really good side.

Arsenal, too, despite the difficult season, have already seen that they will benefit from the work under Mikel Arteta in the future.

‘Or Brighton: although they were in the relegation battle, they still took a very football-oriented approach to the game.

‘As a coach, I think it’s really cool when you follow your plan so consistently, even if the results don’t come straight away.’

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has also hailed Frank Lampard and Mikel Arteta, who will be leading their sides into the FA Cup final on 1 August, particularly praising the Chelsea manager.

‘He and [Mikel] Arteta in the FA Cup final, that is really impressive,’ Klopp told a press conference this week. ‘A proper team with some interesting decisions.

‘It shows that he used his playing time not just to move his legs. He learned a lot. Really prepared for the job. Still young. 100% ready for it though.

‘With managers, one day you are the one to be and the next you are not. Frank is doing an exceptional job.

‘He did well at Derby, a big challenge at Chelsea, no-one expected a title but to qualify for the Champions League in a really strong league. He’s done brilliantly.’
