Liverpool's win over Palace is the latest example of Jurgen Klopp's effect

Klopp Scouse Lesson

Liverpool are steadily developing habits of scoring crucial late goals and coming from behind to win games.

Even in a Liverpool side that is currently seventh in the Premier League, there are a couple of huge redeeming features about it - something that wasn't there before the arrival of Jurgen Klopp in October.

The squad has always been capable of playing good football, although not consistently - that is something the German still needs to work out, but he may be about to find that after the Reds recorded three Premier League wins in succession for the first time since February last year. 

It isn't the first time that Liverpool have come from behind to win a game this season, nor is it the first time they have struck late in order to alter the outcome of a match. 

These habits can only be good ones. Responding to setbacks and playing right up until the final whistle is exactly what Klopp will want from his side. 

Late goals have come in home games against West Bromwich Albion and Arsenal to snatch draws at Anfield while trips to Norwich City and Crystal Palace have seen the Reds strike decisively late on to win. Those goals alone are worth an extra six points to their league tally. You can also factor in Philippe Coutinho's relatively late strike against Manchester City in the League Cup final to show that Liverpool are certainly putting any notion of throwing the towel in as far away from their minds as possible. 

The Reds captain, Jordan Henderson summed it up on the club's website: “It shows that we never give up and we always go right until the end, which the manager has drummed into us.

“Since he’s [come in], I think that’s been one of the big things for us, to keep going right until the end no matter what the circumstances are."

Then there's the aspect of coming from behind to win games. Liverpool have faced deficits against Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Norwich City on the road and managed to come back to win. You can also look at the League Cup tie against Southampton where the Reds conceded early on before putting six past their opponents. It hasn't been a familiar trait in recent years - at times the side has really struggled.

It's important for the side to develop these traits, it's what successful sides do. It's one thing that is noticeable about Klopp's impact at Liverpool. Going forward there needs to be more quality and consistency added to the side.
