Gerrard on the areas Klopp has improved Liverpool since taking over

J├╝rgen Klopp

The former Liverpool captain has been more than impressed with the changes the German has made.

Steven Gerrard has highlighted on BT Sport, broadcast from 5:30pm on 26th November, where Jurgen Klopp has improved Liverpool from Brendan Rodgers.

The German took the Anfield hotseat earlier last month after Rodgers was sacked following a disappointing start to the campaign.

It had been a solid if uninspiring start at first for Klopp, but big wins over Chelsea and Manchester City have now got people talking.

Gerrard has pointed out the areas he has seen improve since the managerial change at Liverpool.

“I think with the ball they’re moving it and getting it forward a lot quicker. The tempo seems to have been lifted,” he told BT Sport.

“They’re certainly attacking with pace and the playing almost three number 10s in there so defenders don’t know what’s going on.”

“Defensively, they look a little bit more organised. He’s very clear how he wants them to press and where he wants them to press.”

If the City game is anything to go by, Liverpool have certainly improved offensively under Klopp.

The Reds were looking short of ideas under Rodgers, but their 4-1 win away from home at the Etihad Stadium last weekend saw them creating numerous opportunities.

In fact, Liverpool were unfortunate not to win by a bigger margin on the afternoon, with Joe Hart denying them on several occasions.

Roberto Firmino was particularly unlucky, while Christian Benteke could also have had a goal to his name had he not been denied by Hart.

Having struggled for goals previously, though, Reds fans won’t mind too much and will hope they can continue to be as effective going forward in future.
