The Reds were highly impressive in their 4-1 win over Manchester City.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Jamie Redknapp has said that he was particularly pleased with the work of Liverpool’s attacking talent against Manchester City.

The Reds put in a highly accomplished performance on Saturday evening, as they ran out 4-1 winners at the Etihad.

Key to that victory was the performances of their attacking stars, with Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino on fine form.

The trio posed a constant threat to the City backline, with both Brazilians getting on the score sheet, and Firmino unfortunate not to get more goals in the game.

While their attacking threat pleased him, Redknapp was more enthusiastic about their work rate throughout the game.

“What I liked the most, you look at the Liverpool team and there’s few luxury players like Firmino, Coutinho and Lallana.,” he told Sky Sports.

“Make no mistake, they worked harder to get the ball back than anybody, and that was apparent from the first whistle. There was a couple of examples, they won the ball back so high up the pitch.“

Of all the games under Klopp so far, this game was the one where his style was most evident.

The German implemented his famous pressing game from the start, but the win over City was the first time it has been especially effective.

That was courtesy of the aforementioned attacking trio; whose work rate meant the home side didn’t get to play their game as they wished.

Klopp, and Liverpool fans, will be hoping they can continue to be that effective for the rest of the season.
