“You have to be smart” – Jurgen Klopp highlights tweaks to Liverpool’s style this season

Published

Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has claimed that the team have worked on the defensive aspect of their play and are avoiding going all-out when in the lead.

The Reds have not been as free-flowing in their attack when compared to the previous season. However, their defence has been one of the best in the league.

Klopp’s team have conceded just three goals from nine Premier League games. Liverpool, along with Chelsea and Manchester City, have made an exemplary start to the season and have all established their dominion in the English top flight.

Klopp was quoted by the Daily Star as saying:

“It’s a normal period of adaptation.

“You put the focus a bit more on something and immediately you lose a bit of the fluency in something else.”

The German added that we have had good results and wanted the team to get better.

“We have already had good results and scored goals but it’s obvious that we can improve.

“But we need to keep the stability – no doubt about that. What we’ve done defensively so far is credit to the whole team.”

Klopp further claimed that the first part of the season lays the foundations for the rest of the campaign.

“That first part of the season is the basis for the rest of the season so let’s use it. We are growing as a team in a specific way and hopefully we can use that.”

“I love the way they approach the game” – Liverpool target open to moving to Premier League

Nicolo Barella

Nicolo Barella is open to a move to the Premier League with Liverpool interested in the 21-year-old, according to Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Football.london).

The Reds face a huge battle for the signature of the midfielder as Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan, AS Roma, Manchester United and Arsenal are all interested, as per the report.

The 21-year-old played for the national side in their recent games against Poland and Ukraine and has been one of the rising stars in the Serie A over the past seasons.

The Italian opened up about a number of offers for him but he was happy to stay at Cagliari. Barella was speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Football.london) and was quoted as saying:

“Cagliari has received offers and rejected them.

“I am glad that I am still playing for the club that I am a supporter of. I feel at home here.

“In consultation with the chairman, we have chosen to ignore the proposals.

“I have not even considered them, Cagliari has always been my first choice.”

However, the youngster was willing to choose the Premier League over the Serie A.

“If I had to choose between the Serie A and the Premier League, I would go for England because I love the way they approach the game.

“Plus everyone there is just as irritable and prone to fouls as me!”

The report adds that the player could be worth more than €50million, but a move in the winter window looks unlikely given the club do not want to sell their star midway through the season.

Liverpool injury update: Reds confirm that star attacker has undergone a successful surgery

Sadio Mane

Liverpool have confirmed via their official website that star attacker Sadio Mane underwent hand surgery on an injury he picked up during international duty.

The Senegalese star’s surgery was supervised by our medics and was successful. The report adds that Mane’s recovery will be monitored in the coming days ahead of our clash against Huddersfield on Saturday.

The 26-year-old is on a bit of a goal drought as he hasn’t scored for club or country since September 1. Mane’s last goal came in the 2-1 win over Leicester and the 26-year-old doesn’t even have an assist to his name since scoring that goal against the Foxes.

Liverpool need their top stars to be firing but have a number of injury concerns ahead of the Huddersfield clash. Virgil van Dijk, Naby Keita, Mohamed Salah and James Milner all have issues that the club have to keep an eye on but we could see a couple of them start against the Terriers.

The Reds haven’t won a game since their 3-0 triumph over Southampton on 22nd September, but we should start as favourites against a win-less Huddersfield.

It will be interesting to see what Jurgen Klopp does with his team. We don’t have tough fixtures until te game against Arsenal November 3, and this is the ideal time for the manager to rotate the squad.
