Liverpool are top of the Premier League going into the latest international break, sitting eight points clear of Leicester City.
Can Klopp consider himself on the same level as Shankly & Paisley?
Their 3-1 win over Manchester City was a statement to the reigning champions, who are now down in fourth after a third defeat of the season.
Pep Guardiola’s men couldn’t live with Liverpool’s counter-attacking style in the opening 20 minutes, as goals from Fabinho and Mohamed Salah put them in a commanding position.
Despite the fact that it’s still only November, many pundits, including Jose Mourinho, believe the title race may be over due to the huge lead the Reds already hold.
Liverpool haven’t won the title in England’s top division since 1989/90, before the inception of the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp is the mastermind behind their success, but has received criticism from figures such as the aforementioned ‘Special One’ over playing to the cameras for his touchline exploits.
The German has been reluctant to bring it out recently, and was seen being encouraged to do so by a cameraman on the Anfield pitch after the game.
Here’s how some Liverpool fans reacted to this:
