Jurgen Klopp Has Superlative Praise for Liverpool FC Attack



Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 4-2 yesterday in an exciting, fun-to-watch contest that kept the Reds level with Manchester City and Arsenal a top the Premier League table. The victory included a thrill-a-minute first half where scoring chances were flying about at a fast and furious pace.

Liverpool are now unbeaten in their last eight straight contests, and Manager Jurgen Klopp had extensive praise for the attack.

He believes that it’s the best attack he’s seen in his side since he arrived at Merseyside.

In an interview with BT Sport after the game, Jurgen Klopp joked: “Nice and easy game? What can I say, first 15 minutes I was not too happy.”

“It looked a little bit like childish football – very good but no greed, no direction. We were good but that should not work. It didn’t work actually and then we scored and we started playing football.”

“I’m not sure that we played a lot of times better than we played then offensive-wise. In half an hour we created chance after chance and scored not often enough, but we scored and then we opened up the game ourselves again.”

The German, who moved to Anfield in October of 2015 added: “In the first 15 minutes we were not really at 100 per cent, we had not the aggressiveness that you need in a game like this. They expected that they will have a little bit of pressure, so it’s not a problem for them.”

“It was a close game but a deserved win at the end. It was clear, I would say. They are very happy in the moment.”

Jurgen Klopp on company will next face Watford, on November 6th, in league competition.
