Midfield general praises new Liverpool boss

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has explained that the arrival of Jurgen Klopp has meant that they now can respond to setbacks during games properly, according to The Liverpool Echo.

Lucas, who has been at Anfield for eight years, believes that Klopp has made a real difference to their attitude during games, saying: “After the Southampton game the manager spoke to us and said you can’t think too much about a goal if you concede it”.

“During the last few months if we conceded a goal our body language maybe wasn’t the best,” he added.

This is presumably a reference to Brendan Rodgers’ reign as Liverpool manager, when they did not come from behind to win a Premier League match this calendar year.

Since taking over at Anfield Klopp has overseen two wins, the latest of which came at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as the Reds came back from conceding a goal in the opening four minutes to win 3-1.

Lucas started that match, and is proving his worth to Liverpool fans again after being in and out of the team under Rodgers.

Their first win at Stamford Bridge since 2011 means that Liverpool sit eight in the Premier League standings.
