On the North London bench were Adam Bogdan, Kolo Toure, Joe Allen, Jerome Sinclair, Joao Carlos Texiera and Connor Randall. Klopp opted for the last four by Alberto Moreno, Mamadou Sakho, Martin Skrtel and Nathaniel Clyne. Moreno was key for Klopp in his early years and is still playing for Villarreal, while Clyne had problems at Anfield, and now plays for Crystal Palace. Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said his team owners, John W.
Henry and Tom Werner, made a simple statement of intent upon their arrival at the club in October. In their first 11 games in the Premier League with Klopp in the lead, for example, Liverpool scored 18 points with Rodgers, while Liverpool only scored six fewer in nine games.
