It’s all about balance in football.
If you think about the performances under Rodgers and Klopp in his first 2 seasons, it was all out attack and very exciting to watch but with a huge sacrifice of defence and it never felt we were in control of the outcome of games.
Under Rafa, on the whole, we were a defensive side and would often try to score a goal and then play very deep and try to catch the opponent on the counter but by playing this way, we sacrificed our attack.
This shows that regardless of the group of players you have, if you opt for heavy metal, you’re going to concede a sh*t ton. If you park a bus, you’re not going to blow anyone away. You need to find a balance.
I believe this season that Klopp has found the balance and that is the underlying reason why we are up there fighting for the title. I’m quite happy for us to play a little less exciting and a little more controlled if it means we are winning trophies.
As Jamie Carragher said on Sky, if Liverpool are to win the league, it’ll be thanks to the defence, not the attack.
