Doing what they do best even better: Liverpool recovered 94 points from losing positions under Klopp

Even their biggest rivals can’t take anything away from Liverpool when it comes to comeback wins. The Reds orchestrated possibly the greatest game in history of the beautiful sport in Istanbul in 2005 when they won the Champions League after going 3:0 down. Now, the Anfield faithful enjoyed another memorable moment of a triumph after going down early in the match against West Bromwich Albion.


Hal Robson-Kanu gave WBA the lead in the 15th minute, Mo Salah equalized in the 33rd but the Reds were fearing for their campaign until the very last moment. A corner from Trent Alexander-Arnold was met by the goalkeeper Alisson of all people in the 95th minute for a 2:1 win!


Spectacular, yet familiar for Liverpool fans. Even though the Brazilian became the first keeper to score for the English side in its history, dating back to 1892!


But the Reds are a comeback machine, obviously. They can never be counted out and especially under Jurgen Klopp. His side has recovered 94 points from losing positions in the Premier League under Jurgen Klopp, most out of any team in the competition since October 2015!


Now the side still has a good chance of getting Champions League football with that fourth spot. Although the German believes it wasn't the momentum of previous victories that gave his boys the strength.


"So I didn’t think a second about momentum, I wanted us just to be full of desire and calm anyway. And that’s what I saw, because we had to play football, you cannot really force it, like with shots from 35, 40 yards or something like that. You have to play through, we had to play the most difficult spaces between their lines," said the Liverpool manager upon the heroics of his players.
