Premier League day 6

Liverpool easily dominated Wolverhampton 3-0 and solidify their position as leader of the Premier League. The Reds have won their seven first official games this season, combining six straight Premier League victories and one Champions League match.

Liverpool‘s best start

Liverpool made history today with the club’s best ever start in the Premier League wining the first six games. They also conceded only two goals in the first six games and that one of the best defensive start too.

Now, we have to wonder whether the Reds can sustain this level all-season long. By adding world’s class players such as Fabinho and Shaqiri while keeping intact their starting XI, Liverpool has a very good shot for the Premier League title.

No Premier League title

Despite showing such a honorable record of 5 European Cups and 3 UEFA Cups, most than any other English clubs along side 18 English league titles, Liverpool has never won the title under the new league format Premier League established in 1992.

Liverpool coach Klopp comments on the win:

“It was good but you saw it needed to be because Southampton were not bad, they played good football. I had an idea and it didn’t work out 100 per cent. We changed system obviously to bring Shaq in a comfortable position.

We wanted to make it a bit more difficult for Southampton to be really prepared for what we do. We knew the two tall boys in the centre would play so we thought to bring Mo there. Offensively, it was really good; defensively, we obviously weren’t used to it.

The session yesterday  was very strange – we couldn’t really go out because the real bad weather was over the city at our training time.  We had around about 30 minutes with set-pieces included, which is very important because Southampton are really good with set-pieces. That we did that obviously helped because all three goals were around set-pieces. 

On the winning streak:

I lost one time in my life seven games in a row and that felt different, to be honest. But then we won game No.8 5-0, which was very cool! Yes, it’s a surprise because of course you cannot expect it, but all performances we showed so far were at least good enough to win the games.

All the different challenges with the different styles of the opponent, the boys were there. They were really in the situation and in the different games, so that’s good. But now the next one is coming on Wednesday and then coming again on Saturday and then again on the Wednesday.

That’s now a really short week we have and then the period ends with a nice game against Man City! It will be tough, but for all of us, so that’s absolutely OK. It is better to win these games than draw them or lose them. I am really sure we are mature enough to understand it in the right way.
