Praise for Jürgen Klopp has come from all corners of the world this season, but some of the best compliments have come from his colleagues, his fellow coaches. Klopp inherited a team that had under-delivered in recent seasons, and a fan base itching for change and results. Deservedly so too, the Reds haven’t won any major silverware in a very long time. So his challenge to get something extra from a promising but ultimately underperforming player group was a tough one. And to date, he has worked wonders.
After doing all of the hard work against the top teams, Liverpool’s run into Christmas against the ‘easier’ teams was always going to throw up a surprise. Bournemouth was not the early Christmas surprise many were expecting, but one can only be philosophical in these situations. Leading 2-0 early and 3-1 late into the game, the Reds conceded three late goals to lose in the most stunning of fashions away to bottom half team Bournemouth.
