Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool are a different club entirely. They’ve had to settle for mediocrity for years, but under the German, they’ve taken their game to the next level.
Though they didn’t win anything last season, they came close, and his season looks to be even better.
They’re challenging for the Premier League title at present, and though it won’t be easy, it’s evident that they’re up to the task.
A host of things have changed at Anfield over the years, and undeniably the biggest over the last year or so has come at the back. Klopp has transformed every aspect of the Liverpool first team, but the defence has enjoyed the biggest changes – notably by the arrival of Alisson.
The Brazilian moved to the club over the summer, and alongside the likes of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk, he’s helped turn the defence at Liverpool into one of the best in England.
Alisson has recently been discussing the Liverpool defence, as per the official Liverpool Twitter page, and he’s been hugely complimentary to the players in front of him, noting that they’ve been key to his transition.
“My team have a really great defence so it is not often the ball comes near my net.”@Alissonbecker has cited #LFC‘s defence as a key factor behind his seamless transition to life in the @premierleague. https://t.co/TPtaLJD4dF

Unsurprisingly, this has got Liverpool fans talking, and it’s fair to say that they are echoing his statements. They’ve just so happy that the defence and goalkeeper at Liverpool are so much better than it was last season.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…

It takes time to adjust to the EPL. Knowing the keeper behind you is good brings confidence to the defence.
Chelsea’s more expensive keeper has conceded more goals so far. My money is on this Man. He gets my vote

There are times i wish he would hoof it down the pitch instead of rolling out to the back four and i get nervous when a player trys running him down. Still an improvement on what we had.!

No he saved us against Chelsea with incredible saves. Got us 3 points against Brighton made good saves vs Crystal Palace the only poor game was Leicester and he still made important saves in that game
