Jurgen Klopp’s arrival as Liverpool boss has been solid rather than spectacular, but there are already signs that the German’s influence on his team is increasing. The Reds are unbeaten since his arrival Anfield.
On Thursday night, the Reds recorded a 1-0 win at Rubin Kazan in the Europa League, with young winger Jordon Ibe grabbing his first goal in senior football. It was not an empathic win, but it was a solid display from the team from Merseyside.
The win against reigning Premier League champions Chelsea last time out in the Premier League had the hallmark of his Klopp’s former- team Dortmund, as the Reds pressed high up the field and playmaker Philippe Coutinho grabbed a brace.
The Brazilian has a big role to play in the Klopp era, as the attacking midfielder was always vital to the way Klopp’s team played at Dortmund.
The likes of Shinji Kagawa and Mario Gotze both played a key role in Dortmund’s success under the charismatic Klopp.
I am sure Reds fans are happy with the start that their new boss has made to life on Merseyside, but something tells me there is far more to come from Klopp at Anfield.
Has there been a change in Liverpool’s style since Klopp’s arrival?
