Jurgen Klopp has shown his appreciation of Liverpool’s early-season performances. Following a deserved 3-1 victory against Arsenal.

According to Football365, Jurgen Klopp has told reporters of his delight at Liverpool’s performances so far this season; “We had enough bodies and legs to put them under pressure. We had the full-backs really high. The boys did what we wanted them to do and scored wonderful goals.”

“The decision about the penalty I think was absolutely obvious. Mo’s third goal was absolutely amazing, but the pedigree of the boys is sensational. Our identity is intensity and we showed that today.”

“What we did really well in the first four games, we did today longer and more precise. People talk that our defending is this or that. Most of the time it has nothing to do with the last line, but how we react in certain situations.”

Klopp finished by talking about the one goal his team did concede; “I would have loved to have it (clean sheet), but things can happen. They’re a quality side, Arsenal. I didn’t see that many chances, but we were really in charge today and completely deserved the win.”

Liverpool have started the season perfectly, winning their first three games and collecting nine points in the process.
