Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed the reason behind the Reds impressive goal record this season, according to the Mirror.
Per-the-source, Klopp was well aware of his sides failure to find the back of the net last season and decided to change the psychology of the strikers rather than splash out on big money transfers.
Liverpool offloaded Christian Benteke over the summer but decided against signing any more centre forwards. Instead, Klopp opted to sign the likes of Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum.
Klopp explained that having multiple midfielders who made runs into the box, was a better option than relying on a single striker. The Reds have racked up 30 goal so far this season and sit at the top of the Premier League with 26 points.
“When you remember last season, there were a lot of games when we were really dominant, but we were not winning,” Klopp was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
“When we were good with the ball, passing and moving, overlapping, things like this, but in the end we didn’t finish it off enough. We had too many games last year, we couldn’t change.
“So, you need players who are natural that they go into the penalty area. We have these players now.
“In this moment we have four or five strikers, including Roberto Firmino, but it is for the roles behind. You need the numbers to push everyone.”
Liverpool take on Southampton in the Premier League next weekend as they look to remain in pole position.
