Angry Jurgen Klopp’s touchline demand to Liverpool as Reds trailed 2-0 to Blackpool

Jurgen Klopp could be heard angrily telling his Liverpool players what to do as they remarkably fell two goals down to Blackpool at Anfield.

In what was their final pre-season match before next weekend’s Premier League opener against Leeds, the Reds came from 2-0 down to eventually beat their former under-23 boss Neil Critchley’s side 7-2.

Joel Matip, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Harvey Elliott, Takumi Minamino, Divock Origi and Sepp van den Berg all scored for the Reds, but not before they had been given a shock by the Tangerines.

Young defender Billy Koumetio’s dallying on the ball was punished by CJ Hamilton to give Blackpool the lead at the Kop end, with Jerry Yates adding a second from the penalty spot after a foul by Alisson.



Blackpool stunned the Reds by going 2-0 up

Liverpool – who were fielding a strong starting XI including all of their famed front three – were second best to many challenges, and Klopp could be heard instructing his players what to do.

With his words echoing around an empty Anfield, the Reds boss could be heard shouting “win a challenge! Start winning challenges! Be in the right place! Move!”

Ultimately Liverpool ended up listening to their manager, and they pulled themselves back into the game when returning defender Joel Matip headed home from a corner shortly before the break.



Liverpool came roaring back into the game

That set Liverpool up for a second half onslaught, and they scored six times in the second period as they came flying back into the match.

Mane, Firmino, Elliott and Minamino’s goals all arrived within 20 minutes of each other, with the latter goal coming after a remarkable run from Firmino.

Substitutes Origi and Van den Berg then rounded off the scoring with close range finishes late on.
