Liverpool the pressure on Chelsea at the top of the Premier League on Saturday, courtesy of a hard-fought 2-0 win at Anfield against a stubborn Sunderland side.
Jurgen Klopp was his usual animated self on the sidelines throughout the games, with the Reds’ boss, unimpressed by the support of the Anfield faithful, desperately urging the home fans to get behind their team.
It would take until the 75th minute for Liverpool to finally break the deadlock against the defensive Black Cats, with sub Divock Origi netting from from left side of the box. James Milner would then seal the deal for the shots, via the penalty spot.
However, before those goals, a visibly irate Klopp turned to the Liverpool fans, urging them to get more involved. And it worked!
The win saw Liverpool temporarily take top spot in the table, before Chelsea returned to the summit later on after beating Tottenham. Although the shine was somewhat taken off the win by what looked like a serious injury suffered by Philippe Coutinho in the first-half.
As for David Moyes’ Sunderland, they are bottom courtesy of their paltry return of just eight points from their first 13 games.
