Gary Lineker has hailed the progress Jurgen Klopp has made with Liverpool after the win against Swansea on Saturday.

The Reds travelled to the Liberty Stadium for the afternoon clash which saw Roberto Firmino and James Milner cancel out an early Leroy Fer strike in a 2-1 victory.

Klopp took charge of Liveprool last October and has since guided the club to two cup finals and has currently got his side firing on all cylinders in the new campaign.

Retired footballer and now Match of the Day host Lineker payed testament to Klopp on his personal Twitter account, stating that the club is making “rapid” progress.

The win has elevated Liverpool up to second place after seven fixtures with 16 points.

They currently sit two points behind league leaders Manchester City, although the latter have a game in hand where they will face Tottenham.

The Reds host fierce rivals Manchester United in their next league clash after the international break and they will prove to be a difficult challenge under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils are currently sat in sixth place winning three of their last three fixtures in all competitions.
