The Merseyside club has been in top form lately as they killed the game off in the first half itself, totally taking advantage of the extra man on the pitch, as Hull City had an afternoon to forget. The attack of Mane , Firmino and Coutinho tore through the Hull defense as Liverpool totally overpowered their opponents not even allowing them to get a sniff of the goal. Liverpool have been really dangerous in the past few games and this will be a warning sign for the title challengers as Liverpool appear to be tough contenders this year.
1. Jurgen Klopp Should Get the Credits
There was some epic play from Liverpool, the way they passed the ball , every player had a spring on their feet. Liverpool had made a web inside the Hull, out of which Hull could barely make out 3-4 times. It felt like Barca was playing at times, the way Liverpool was passing the ball inside the Hull penalty area with ease , dominating possession and providing dangerous crosses time and again. The team was 3-0 up in the first half despite missing some really good opportunities and the way Liverpool played after losing the ball was amazing as well.
Liverpool hungrily pressed the Hull players and that left Hull with only two options- play a long ball to the lone striker ahead or clear the ball out. Either of the two options were not going to help them score anyways.But Liverpool will have to be vary of the teams that can play well under pressure and counter attack well because that remains one of the biggest weakness of this side and it was clearly shown by Spurs why. Jurgen Klopp has changed the face of this team and the players look in good touch and great enough to win the league.
