Jurgen Klopp praises Liverpool’s new-look attacking trio

The German boss has stated that Divock Origi, Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho worked well together in the 0-0 draw with Tottenham.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised a new-look attacking unit after his side’s 0-0 draw with Tottenham yesterday, telling the club’s official website that he was happy with how Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi worked together.

The German trainer was in charge of the side for the first time at White Hart Lane, with both teams having chances to win the game but the spoils eventually shared.

With Daniel Sturridge, Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino and Danny Ings all unavailable, it was a changed Reds attack for the clash against Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

Origi came closest to breaking the deadlock for the visitors when he headed a first-half effort off the hosts’ crossbar.

Despite his side not scoring, Klopp selected his attacking trident as fitting of praise after the game.

“Divock, Phil [Coutinho] and Adam [Lallana] worked perfectly in the three, good positions for them,” he told the club’s official website.

“They did well. The problem was that when we had the ball, we were not cool enough and we didn’t use our skills. We were a little bit too hectic. We didn’t see the right option, but it’s normal.

“We had our moments. From a very good corner we hit the post and there were some other situations where we could have been a little bit better, but for today it’s okay.”

Liverpool have a host of injuries at the moment and will be a much more competitive side when a number of senior figures return to Klopp’s disposal.

The German trainer has a sizeable job on his hands to turn the historic club round, with a top-four finish this season the ultimate aim.
