Gegenpressing, heavy metal football or the latest ‘football from hell’; call it what you may, the past few years has seen Jurgen Klopp’s heavy pressing and counter-attacking style of football establish itself as a devastating recipe for an exhilarating and winning brand of football across Europe.
As such it’s no surprise to see Liverpool having their best start to the season since 2008/09. The team looks transformed as they finally seems to have come to terms with Klopp’s style of football.
The hard working football mentality the German has instilled at Anfield is paying off as Liverpool sit fourth with 10 points from a possible 15.
No other team in the league has run more over the course of the five matches than the Anfield side with a whopping 581.6 Km covered. League leaders Manchester City are in second place having run 570.7 Km.
In wide contrast to this, fierce rivals Manchester United surprisingly sit rooted to the bottom of the table in terms of distance covered. It looks like the Mourinho revolution is severely lacking in terms of mileage.
