A meme-worthy video clip emerged in the immediate aftermath of Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Arsenal of Jurgen Klopp taking Roy Keane to task over accusations that the Reds put in a ‘sloppy’ performance. As the manager rightly pointed out, Liverpool had beaten an in-form Arsenal side with only a handful of moments of concern, and really the Sky Sports pundit should have been praising the Reds for a ‘champion’s performance’ in turning around a one-goal deficit.

There was a joyfulness in Liverpool’s play in their 7-2 win over Lincoln City in the EFL Cup on Thursday night that was a pleasure to behold.

For a game that most expected to be a stern test of Liverpool’s credentials as far as retaining the Premier League title is concerned, the 2-0 win over Chelsea was anything but. Of course, the sending off of Andreas Christensen on the stroke of half-time helped, but let’s be honest: the Reds were well in control throughout, and it seemed only a matter of time before the breakthrough would come.
Wow….now that’s how you start the new season off!

A nod to the glory days of yesteryear, this time around both Liverpool and Leeds United fans can enjoy this fixture without the need to turn to nostalgia.
