Michael Owen believes that there is a “buzz” around Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp this season.

The Reds have made a decent start to the new season under the German coach but have dropped points in their last two outings in the Premier League and the Champions League.

Liverpool were thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City last weekend in the Premier League, before being held to a frustrating 2-2 draw by Sevilla at Anfield in their Champions League group opener on Wednesday night.

However, former Reds striker Owen feels that there is a real sense of positivity at Anfield at the moment and is backing the Reds to achieve success under Klopp.

Speaking on BT Sport on Wednesday night, ex-striker Owen said of Klopp: “He is an amazing character.

“He has just embraced everything that Liverpool is all about.

“The fans, the players and the board all love him. There is a real buzz about the club.”

Liverpool will aim to get back to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon when they host Burnley at Anfield.

The Reds are aiming to improve on their fourth-placed finish in the Premier League table last season.

Liverpool brought Klopp in as the club’s new manager after the Merseyside outfit opted to sack Brendan Rodgers in October 2015.

The Reds are currently eighth in the Premier League table after winning two of their opening four games.
