Klopp’s Liverpool find their pulse
There was a zip about Liverpool’s play against Arsenal which has rarely been seen in 2017, even in their two victories.
The energy was pulsing through the side as they dominated the game in the first half, both in terms of possession and on the defensive side of things.
Adam Lallana was so frantic in that first period, working hard and closing down every opposition player within sight, that it was a wonder he was able to come out for the second.
Jurgen Klopp‘s side had been playing their football on mute in recent weeks, but this was a return to full-on heavy metal football.
