Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp once likened his team’s style of play to heavy metal football – urgent, frenetic and exhilarating. And now, after almost a year under the charismatic manager, the Reds are finally starting to come to terms with the German’s style of play.
This was even more evident in the recent 5-1 thrashing of Hull by the Liverpool. Klopp and gegenpressing have been synonymous for as long as one can remember and Liverpool put up such a display of intense pressing that Hull had no idea what hit them.
The visitors were not afforded any space or time with the Liverpool players swarming towards the ball, together, like a pack of wolves and straight from the first whistle.
