Liverpool have hit back so far this season to prove that they are a side to be feared after their underwhelming fifth-place finish last season.

At the moment Liverpool sit top of the Premier League two points clear of Manchester City and Aston Villa as they are back in a title fight just like they have been many times under Jurgen Klopp.

They recently got into the fourth round of the FA Cup after facing one of the toughest third-round ties as they had Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium without Virgil Van Dijk and Mo Salah.

As well as this they topped their Europa League group with relative ease to make sure they go straight into the round of 16 and skip the playoff round.

Lastly, Liverpool have one foot in Wembley as they came from behind to beat Fulham 2-1 in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

The Reds have had many key players so far this season but that first leg emphasised the fact that Klopp has been the most important performer for the club this campaign.

In-game management from Jurgen Klopp has Liverpool competing for every major honour

Liverpool have often found themselves behind in games this season which of course isn’t what they would like to happen but it is how they have reacted which has been one of the most impressive things about them during this season.

The Reds have had the most goal involvements from substitutions out of all the Premier League clubs in all competitions so far this campaign hence why Klopp has been so important.

They have had a mammoth 30 goal involvements from players coming off the bench and that is 12 more than the two sides who have also been good with their changes as Aston Villa alongside Manchester City have had 18.

Liverpool’s most recent game was a perfect example as to why Klopp has been given such praise for his changes as they found themselves one goal down against Fulham in first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

Klopp did not hang around as ten minutes after half-time he threw on Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo to make a front four alongside Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota.

After 12 minutes of the pair being on the pitch Curtis Jones got an equaliser thanks to a Nunez assist and then three minutes later Nunez linked up with Gakpo to give them the lead.

There has been so many other instances were it has worked out magnificently from Klopp with arguably the biggest being when Nunez achieved a smash and grab against Newcastle United when Liverpool only had ten men.

In a press conference last season Klopp was asked whether he backed himself to turn Liverpool’s fortunes around after a poor start to 2023.

He said that he believes he can and did not hesitate.

Liverpool’s form this season has proved why he didn’t stutter as his management of this side has been so evident for fans to see as he cheers with them after every win.

To have only lost one league game which was due to a never seen before VAR error is testament to just how well the German coach who has won it all at Liverpool is doing this campaign.
