Jurgen Klopp was in bullish form following Liverpool’s 6 -1 dismantling of Leeds at Elland Road on Monday night.
Liverpool had taken two points from four league games and crashed out of the Champions League since beating Manchester United 7 – 0 in March. Jurgen Klopp hasn’t had much to be bullish about lately, and he still isn’t saying they can qualify for the Champions League.
They’re still in eighth place, nine points behind Newcaslte in fourth. They still have high-flying Brighton, surprise contenders Aston Villa and Spurs to overtake before they can think about Europe.
“The moment in the game I enjoyed the most was the 92nd minute. It’s already 6-1 and we lose the ball and we had four players chasing.
“From a counter-pressing point of view that was definitely the best game we’ve played this season, in possession probably as well.
“We were calm in the decisive moments to pass exceptional balls. I think Mo’s second was super play. Curtis (Jones) to Robbo (Andrew Robertson), then Cody (Gakpo) and then the ball to Mo. That was really good.
“There were lots of good moments. Last goal, sensational pass from Trent (Alexander-Arnold) and Darwin (Nunez) can finish it off. It was a good game.”
“We’ve played a really bad season, but some things are not really to explain,” Jurgen Klopp added.
“Some things are, some things aren’t. Some things are definitely not acceptable, but now we can put in good performances we can understand what is possible.
“That’s really important for me and that’s why I don’t think where we can push to, I just want us to play top football and win games and we’ll see where we end up.”
