Klopp arrived at Liverpool in October 2015 with a reputation for playing "heavy metal" football. This extraordinary nine-goal thriller away at Norwich City three months later proved that he was true to his word. Adam Lallana’s winner in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time sparked wild celebrations at Carrow Road, leaving Klopp needing a new pair of glasses.

Klopp: “There was lots I didn’t like as all the goals we conceded were completely unnecessary, it was spectacular because we came back again.”

After falling behind in the 11th minute against Arsenal, Liverpool responded in resounding fashion by hitting five past the Gunners, including a hat-trick for Roberto Firmino.

Klopp: “Two of Bobby’s goals were absolutely outstanding. Arsenal games have tended to be spectacular, with lots of goals. This was definitely wild, but you need to be wild from time to time.”

1-0 down at Villa Park with three minutes of normal time left, Liverpool stormed back with late goals from Andrew Robertson and Mane to retain a six-point lead at the top of the Premier League and preserve their 10-month unbeaten run in the league.

Klopp: “It had been a difficult period in general because we had played a lot of games. Going to Villa and being 1-0 down was really tough. Sadio finished it off with his head where other people put their feet. Outstanding moment.”

Another memorable Merseyside derby for Klopp and the Reds. This time they put five past Everton, securing an emphatic victory despite Alisson, Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Firmino all being absent from the starting XI.

Klopp: “The derbies are like a love/hate relationship. I love the derbies but they are so big. For a long time it was too hot.”

Another emphatic win over rivals Manchester United sent Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League table, temporarily leapfrogging eventual champions Manchester City. With the pressure of the title race approaching boiling point, the Reds produced another memorable performance - ensuring they outscored the Red Devils 9-0 in their Premier League meetings that season.

Klopp: “I probably prefer the home game. We started the game incredibly well, both performances were really great but I enjoyed the 4-0 much more.”
