Subiect: t well-taken goals by Kevin Mirallas and N
Friday will mark six months since Liverpool appointed Jurgen Klopp but the club find themselves down in ninth in the Premier League table. Even so, the German coach has provided enough glimpses to give supporters hope for next season, writes Adam Bate… Weve really developed in the last few months, Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports. Thats how it is. Our game has changed.We have a lot of possession. We spend a lot of time in dangerous zones on the pitch. We create chances. We dont score enough goals and we concede too many goals, thats the truth. But weve become more and more stable. Given that Klopp was appointed in October and has since been expected to work with another managers players, stable is what Liverpool supporters will settle for this season - as long as it comes with the promise of improvement. There were further signs of that improvement in Saturdays 1-1 draw against Tottenham at Anfield.Of course, Mauricio Pochettinos Spurs side are seen as a template for just about every team in the Premier League right now. Certainly, Liverpool are looking to adopt a pressing game of their own under Klopp. That much was evident in the reverse fixture - Klopps first in charge of Liverpool - when the Reds became the first team to outrun Tottenham this term. Sprint stars Philippe Coutinho, Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana each made more than 70 sprints against Tottenham on Saturday. In running more than 115 kilometres at Anfield on Saturday, Klopps team have also become the first to manage that feat both home and away this year. The players produced 600 sprints to Spurs 539 too, but pressing is far more than mere running. Its an organised and coherent tactic in order to control the game and disrupt the opponent.Naturally, that requires time on the training ground - something Klopp has been denied due to the cycle of matches and recovery that Liverpool have endured. In reaching the final of the Capital One Cup and playing more games in Europe than any other English team, there have been a barely believable 18 midweek games for Klopps men since his October arrival. Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring for Liverpool against Tottenham It is telling that while Stoke boss Mark Hughes is typical of club managers in bemoaning the international break and its effect on his players, Klopp welcomed it. Most of them played only one game so we are something like refreshed, he said. Usually the international break is not too nice but today its not a problem. So now we are back and recharged.We saw some evidence of the pressing against Tottenham - the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana forcing the visitors into errors in their own half on a regular basis. Unfortunately, despite Klopps insistence that his players are fresh, they are playing in patches and struggling to press home the advantage in games. Reds fading? Liverpool have surrendered 17 points from winning positions this season. Harry Kanes equaliser means Liverpool have now dropped more points - 17 of them - from winning positions than any other team in the Premier League. In the previous game, a 3-2 defeat at Southampton, his side squandered a two-goal lead. Its clear that this is little more than a work in progress for now.That point is further highlighted by the fact that Klopp has picked up fewer points from his 22 Premier League games than Rodgers did in his final 22 games at the helm. Liverpool are a team still failing to take their chances. Only Tottenham and Manchester City have had as many shots as them this season, and yet they are only the divisions eighth-highest scorers. Premier League 2015/16 Team Shots Tottenham 548 Man City 533 Liverpool 481 Arsenal 468 We have to be ruthless and take chances, Reds midfielder James Milner said afterwards. Were getting the style the manager wants but we have not got the consistency. Whats helped Klopp is that the squads best moments have come in big games. They have beaten Leicester, Manchester City and Manchester United at Anfield since Christmas.There can be seen as pointers to the potential of Klopps methods. Hes improved Dejan Lovren and improved Emre Can, said Jamie Carragher. I think hes improved Lallana too. The ex-Liverpool defender is among those insisting that Klopp can only be properly judged once hes had a pre-season and a summer transfer window in which to mould the side. Jurgen Klopp says his Liverpool side are learning to become winners To be a winner, you have to learn, insisted Klopp afterwards. You get a few knocks - we have had a few this season - but we are on the right track. If you only look at results you will say something is wrong, but there is not a lot wrong, we can build on this.For now, hints and glimpses are what we are dealing in. If Klopp can get Liverpool to produce some more of them against the club at which he made his name, Borussia Dortmund, in Thursdays Europa League quarter-final first-leg, then the current optimism could develop into something rather more significant than stable next season.

On a successful day for the Merseyside clubs, Everton won 3-1 at last-place Fulham to close to within four points of fourth-place Arsenal ahead of their meeting at Goodison Park next weekend. Liverpool -- the leagues top scorers -- produced another masterful attacking display against a porous Spurs defence, with Younes Kabouls second-minute own-goal added to by strikes from Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson to seal an eighth straight win for the Reds. They made the most of Chelseas 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace on Saturday and are two points clear of Jose Mourinhos side with six games left. Manchester City, which drew 1-1 at fourth-place Arsenal, is two points further back in third and crucially has two games in hand. The destiny of the Premier League is in Liverpools hands, though, and the momentum is with them. "Youll Never Walk Alone" -- the clubs anthem -- is being sung with renewed gusto before every game while scarves and flags are out in force in the stands, recalling the period in the late-1970s and early 1980s when Liverpool was the dominant team not just in England but in Europe. "Outstanding team performance and I thought the supporters were brilliant -- thats as good as Ive heard at Anfield since Ive been manager here," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "Its been a tough period over 20-odd years, and they can see something building here." Chelsea and City must come to Anfield next month and they will not relish the task one bit. Certainly Spurs didnt look up for the fight -- they conceded after 97 seconds and were all over the place in defence on another dire performance against a leading club. Kaboul, who endured a miserable match, turned a deflected cross into his own net to set Liverpool on its way and substitute centre back Michael Dawson inadvertently set Suarez clear in the 25th for the Urugguayan to put away his 29th league goal of the season -- a Liverpool record in the Premier League era, surpassing Robbie Fowler (from 1995-96).dddddddddddd "The game was pretty much finished after two mistakes early on. They took a lot of belief from that and went from strength to strength," said Spurs manager Tim Sherwood, whose team is sixth and now eight points off fourth-place Arsenal in the race for the final Champions League qualification spot. The second half was just as one-sided, with Coutinho finishing off a wonderful team goal in the 55th with a low drive from 25 metres before Hendersons inswinging free kick missed everyone in the area and landed in the bottom corner. "For us, the mantra has always been to focus on the next game, we never get too carried away," said Rodgers, again downplaying Liverpools title hopes. "It is very difficult, theres lots of people dreaming about Liverpool winning the title." The way Everton is playing, there could yet be two Merseyside clubs in the Champions League next season. Roberto Martinezs side secured a fifth consecutive league win thanks to an improved second-half performance at Craven Cottage, where it took the lead in the 50th when Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale turned a deflected shot by Steven Naismith into his own net. Ashjan Dejagah drew Fulham level in the 71st with a stunning 25-meter drive that beat Tim Howard at his near post, but well-taken goals by Kevin Mirallas and Naismith in the final 11 minutes saw Everton home. Everton is now four points above Spurs and has a game in hand over them and Arsenal, whose trip to Goodison Park next Sunday could have a massive bearing in the race for fourth. "Im not saying were going to get that because we admire Arsenal because they get in the Champions League consistently," Martinez said. "They have developed a real understanding (of) what to do in these games, so that makes Sunday a phenomenal challenge. "It will probably go down to the last game of the season." Fulham stayed bottom and is five points adrift of safety.
