Jamie Redknapp: Liverpool can achieve anything under Jurgen Klopp
Jamie Redknapp says Liverpool's potential is limitless under Jurgen Klopp
Jamie Redknapp says there is no limit to Liverpool’s potential under Jurgen Klopp.
The Reds were impressive 6-1 winners against Southampton on Wednesday night thanks to Divock Origi’s hat-trick, Daniel Sturridge’s brace and Jordon Ibe’s second-half goal.
He seems to have a magic wand, and he’s come in and seems to have sprinkled magic dust on everyone
Liverpool sealed their first Anfield win in the Premier League under Klopp on Sunday evening thanks to a 1-0 win against Swansea City, racking up back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time since August.
Klopp’s men have also won at Chelsea and Manchester City in recent weeks, and their recent run of results has left Redknapp feeling positive about his former club’s future.
“To come here and produce that kind of performance was incredible. It’s a very good Southampton side. With no [Philippe] Coutinho, no [Roberto] Firmino,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.
“There’s an energy about them. Before that they’d won one out of 10 games.
“At the moment there’s no limit to what Liverpool can do. I have been blown away by what he has achieved so far. They have been absolutely brilliant to watch.
“They’ve been making statement after statement every game now. They’re bringing young players on, the improvement in people like Jordon Ibe, [Divock] Origi scoring a hat-trick.
“It’s the options he has too. He’s not played Firmino tonight, he’s got Benteke on the bench, he’s got Sturridge back.
“Origi, who was worried things won’t work out for him, what’s the hat-trick going to do for his confidence?
“The whole club is buzzing, he seems to have a magic wand, and he’s come in and seems to have sprinkled magic dust on everyone, because they all look like completely different players.”
Liverpool are in sixth place and six points behind leaders City ahead of their trip to Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds have lost just once in 12 games since Klopp took over the reins from Brendan Rodgers following October’s Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
