Jurgen Klopp has made Liverpool fans happy… now they can break all kinds of records – Andy Dunn

An abiding image from Jurgen Klopp’s first game as Liverpool manager was provided by Adam Lallana.

Hooked after 81 minutes, Lallana began to stagger towards the visitors’ bench at White Hart Lane before being wrapped in Klopp’s embrace.

Legs of jelly, Lallana looked like a marathon runner who had hit the wall just as he had hit the finishing line. All that was needed was for Klopp to throw some shiny foil around him.

Less than five years on, Klopp has brought the silver most coveted by the modern generation of Liverpool supporter. The Premier League title.

And for all the extravagance of their play and their statistics, this is a success that has been built on almost half a decade of unrelenting toil.

From day one, in that exhausting goalless draw against Spurs, players have bought into Klopp’s fearsome work ethic.

This is Liverpool, relentless. This is Liverpool, they give more.

As the new cliche goes, they go again.

And to go again after the narrow miss last season took some doing.

After losing just one game in the 2018-19 Premier League campaign, amassing 97 points and still getting pipped by Manchester City, Klopp’s irresistible squad not only went again to win the Champions League final in Madrid a fortnight later, they went again to cut a swathe through this domestic season.



Fans celebrating outside Anfield on Thursday after Liverpool’s 30-year title wait ended

Never mind that July is just around the corner, this is a title won with SEVEN matches to spare.

And won in an era of one of the finest teams top-flight English club football has seen.

Manchester City are that good, yet will give Liverpool a guard of honour next Thursday with almost 19 percent of the season remaining.

Liverpool could yet break City’s Premier League points record.

This is a triumph for every department of Liverpool Football Club.

For the ownership, who have stumped up when they have needed to, most notably, in the context of these past two stellar seasons, for the purchase of Virgil van Dijk.

Has there been a shrewder £75million spent in elite football? £67m on Alisson, maybe.

For the recruitment department, assembling the finest front three in the world game.

For the players, captained heroically by Jordan Henderson, and whose adventure and bravura is typified by two of the best full-backs anywhere.

For the fans, whose support at Anfield has helped their team to a record 24 consecutive home Premier League wins.



Jurgen Klopp was clearly emotional as he spoke about his team’s title triumph on Sky Sports

For Klopp, the irresistible driving force behind a Liverpool team that could set all manner of records.

But the numbers are secondary for Klopp.

They have already claimed the earliest Premier League title triumph, now they could register the most wins, the most home wins, the biggest winning margin and the most points.

When allowed, though, the most important thing for Klopp will be the celebration amongst the massed throng.

His connection with the supporters has to go down as one of the strongest, most emotional in the history of English club football.

Liverpool – Premier League champions

Or at least it will do by the time he says goodbye to Merseyside.

After the romp against Crystal Palace the other night, Klopp said he wanted to see, in their absence, just how pleased Liverpool supporters were.

Beyond pleased. Ecstatic.

Klopp and this Liverpool team … they made the people happy.
