There may be a lot to admire about Liverpool for the time being, and all of it’s down to at least one man – Jurgen Klopp.

His gamers have been phenomenal to get them to this stage of the season with two trophies within the bag and the possibility of two extra to return, however he’s the one who units the tone for the whole lot they do.

I liked seeing him have a good time on the Wembley pitch together with his gamers, his employees and naturally the followers after winning the FA Cup on Saturday.

Klopp deserves it, as a result of he has constructed it – all of it begins with him.

An unbelievable perception and can to win

Jordan Henderson, Divock Origi and James Milner are the one gamers who’re left from his first recreation in October 2015, away at Tottenham, however he has not simply overhauled the squad, he has generated the ambiance throughout the membership and given them this unbelievable perception and a tremendous will to win.

To get to the place they’re this season, with an opportunity of a quadruple nonetheless alive, is simply staggering and we preserve seeing why it’s all right down to him, and what he has delivered to Liverpool.

The best way they beat Chelsea on penalties this time was the identical method they beat the Blues to raise the Carabao Cup a few months in the past. Once more, there have been high-quality margins between victory and defeat, however to win it that method takes braveness in addition to perception in what you might be about.

Reds captain Jordan Henderson summed it up afterwards when he talked about their perspective and their dedication – the way in which they caught collectively, it doesn’t matter what occurred.

That’s how they beat Chelsea, and that’s the reason they’re going for achievement on so many fronts.

They’re relentless in the way in which they play, and relentless in the way in which they preserve going, taking part in twice per week each week all season.

Klopp hasn’t all the time picked his strongest group within the FA Cup earlier than this 12 months however with the squad he has now, he was lastly outfitted to problem on each entrance – and so they have actually finished that.

You’ll be able to speak about Klopp’s signings and his ways, however it’s his method and the requirements he units which might be the important thing.

There isn’t any doubt he will get what his membership is about and what it means to the town, so he has this wonderful rapport with the followers – they love him, and rightly so – and his gamers too.

What subsequent? Reds will battle to the end

Liverpool have already performed in each recreation potential this season – 60 up to now, with three to go.

It is a fast turnaround now earlier than they face Southampton within the Premier League on Tuesday, which might be an enormous check as a result of it appears like they’ve picked up some accidents alongside the way in which. Fabinho was already out, Mohamed Salah went off early at Wembley, Virgil van Dijk didn’t come out for additional time and Andy Robertson additionally got here off earlier than the top.

However they beat Chelsea with out a few of these gamers, and they’re going to imagine they will beat Saints too.

If Liverpool cannot win the Premier League, what Klopp will need is for his aspect to ensure Metropolis should go and win it, and that they do not simply hand it to them at St Mary’s. He might be determined to take Metropolis to the ultimate day of the season, and be in with an opportunity till then.

No matter occurs within the Premier League, for Liverpool to win three trophies this season could be phenomenal. We all know how good Actual Madrid are and the way additionally they all the time appear to discover a approach to win, however I’d not put it previous Liverpool to beat them, due to who and what they’re – and the mentality of their supervisor.
