Playing away from home was always going to be difficult when it comes to the UEFA Champions League. But such conditions couldn’t deter the Reds as they claimed a massive 1-5 away win at FC Porto.
In the game, Liverpool was exceptional as they took FC Porto to the cleaners not minding that the Portuguese side was playing in front of their home fans.
It’s a massive result for Liverpool who made it two wins in two games as Klopp and his side continue their fine form in the season.
Following Liverpool’s triumph on the road, we evaluate the three things the Reds boss has done well in the FC Porto game.
LIVERPOOL TACTICAL PLAN
It takes a lot of discipline to kill off a game of this magnitude as Liverpool took the trip to FC Porto on Tuesday.
Klopp’s starting eleven was spot on and you could agree with me from the way they went about their dealings in the game.
The substitutions were perfect though there is still room for improvement as Brazil’s forward Taremi gave them a scare with a lifeline for FC Porto in the game.
We expect more of this masterpiece as Klopp looks to engineer his side ahead of big things in the season.
LIVERPOOL ATTACKING INFLUX
The system Klopp has put in a place has made the Reds look untouchable and invincible, to say the least.
And ahead of the next game, the Anfield side would look to continue on this stance owing to the massive understanding that exists between their forward lines in the final third of the pitch as far as the Reds is concerned.
All this was what the German tactician (Klopp) has built at the club as they shined in their brightest colour with the Liverpool attacking trio all getting on the score sheet.
