Sky Sports pundit: This Liverpool key man is brilliant
By Dominic Toner
Dean Saunders claims that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is doing a brilliant job and can take the club to the top of the Premier League.
The Reds completed a narrow 1-0 victory over their Merseyside rivals Everton on Monday night and moved up to second in the Premier League.
Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane scored a late winner in stoppage time and the result means they are six points behind league leaders Chelsea.
Saunders hailed the victory against Everton and believes that Klopp is currently working out the Premier League.
“It’s a great win – a much-needed win – and it gives Jurgen Klopp more time to assess what he needs to get right to the top,” Saunders said, as quoted by Sky Sports. “The longer it goes on, he’ll work it out. He’s doing brilliantly.”
