Things seem to be on the up for Liverpool as the Reds have now won four of their last five matches in the Premier League, and are unbeaten since their bizarre defeat at Burnley.
They currently sit third in the points table, level on points with Manchester City, but just below them on goal difference.
The defensive problems in the squad have already been well-documented, but the one spot that has not been under the spotlight for any kind of wrong reasons has been the right-back position, occupied by Englishman Nathaniel Clyne.
The defender, bought from Southampton, has won over the hearts of the Kop with his zest and reliability, and this has not gone unnoticed by Klopp.
He has not missed a minute of Premier League action this season, and stats show that he has been the League’s most creative defender. Check out the statistic below!
