'It was as good as I can remember from any Liverpool team'

The Jurgen Klopp love-in is in full swing after the German masterminded a scintillating win over Manchester City.

Liverpool were brimming with vigour and verve in the memorable 4-1 victory at the Etihad and the world has been queuing up to hail Klopp bringing his trademark gegenpressing to Merseyside.

Jamie Carragher didn’t hold back the praise on Monday Night Football as he analysed the Liverpool game.

He said: “The first 30 or 35 minutes was as good as anything I can remember, not just from Jurgen Klopp but a Liverpool team, in the Premier League – especially going away to a big team, Manchester City, who are one of the top sides.”

He looked at the front three of Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana and how they managed to penetrate the City defence so effectively.

Carragher was also pretty impressed with the way Lucas Leiva managed to stymie Yaya Toure in midfield.
