Klopp’s successes at Anfield had further painted the unpopular Rodgers in a bad light, and further vindicated the owners’ decision to replace the Northern Irish coach with the former Borussia Dortmund manager.
Not only has Klopp wowed fans with his magnetic personality and charm, the results have also been favourable to the new man.
Excluding a disappointing 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace before the international break, Klopp remains unbeaten, and has picked up big wins over last year’s first and second-placed teams Chelsea and Manchester City.
The troubled Pensioners—the English reigning champions—were dispatched 3-1 at Stamford Bridge, while Manchester City were humbled 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.
While Klopp has enjoyed great success against the big dogs, Rodgers never quite managed to find a way to trouble the league’s giants.
The Northern Irish coach took nine attempts to defeat top-four opposition, losing three and drawing four home and away. Klopp, by contrast, already has a 100 % record against top-four clubs, amazingly, with both wins coming away from home.
