His recent performances have drawn warm praise from many, though Klopp was impressed from the start and suggested that he may be demanding more attacking output than was expected of the 24-year-old by Arsene Wenger.
Klopp's approach has changed since that day, however, with the German navigating a busy winter schedule of 13 games in 45 days by routinely changing his starting lineup. But it's hard. "I was happy from the first day about his involvement, about his attitude, and since then he became more and more a Liverpool player".
Arsenal suffered a chastening defeat at Anfield in the first month of the season when Liverpool decimated the Gunners and Wenger took some serious flak for the performance. That's how it is. And I think: "Wow".
"If you watch Arsenal in the past, their two decisive players were Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez". He's really fit, you could see it at Bournemouth, there was not one second where you thought he looked exhausted.
Atlanta Falcons vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs, meanwhile, opened as a 4-point home underdog but the line was bet up almost three points and now the Falcons are -6 .5. While the Detroit game was certainly upsetting from a turnover perspective, it also left the team devastated by key injuries.
And he rapped: "The biggest improvement for Oxlade-Chamberlain is being involved in goalscoring situations".
"We are not relaxed, but we have a view on everything and it needs to fit together and everything needs to work out in the end, and you need to have solutions for different situations and systems and all that stuff". As if that wasn't enough to irk Wenger, Klopp also made a point of highlighting how the Frenchman, so renowned for his purist principles, has often used a far more rudimentary approach against Liverpool based around the aerial ability of Olivier Giroud. A lot of the time against us, Giroud played from the beginning.
He said: "They are a complete side, able to do everything".
"They are involved in a lot of decisive passes and then the others are not involved much". "The three points is the most important thing and the boys up front are scoring. We are a team with very offensive orientation but that doesn't mean you have to give space away".
