Incised 100 victories – Klopp defeated Fergie and Wenger
The match against Everton was won in the early morning Liverpool, where the victory meant special to their manager, Jurgen Klopp. Yes, with that victory, the German coach has incised 100 victories in the Premier League since 2015 until now.
As is known, Liverpool faced Everton on 15th week of Premier League, Thursday morning WIB (5/12) at Anfield. The Reds won with a pretty landslide score, 5-2 over city rivals. Even though, Salah and Firmino were not injured, the Reds continued to dominate, and Divock Origi became the main star in the party with a pair of goals.
Despite the neat Origi’s performance, Liverpool in fact managed to maintain the top of the standings, even stronger. They are now eight points ahead of Leicester City, who sit in second place. This record also continues the unbeaten period of the Marseyside Team since the first week of the Premier League this season.
Not only that, victory over Everton also made Jurgen Klopp’s name now in the elite ranks of the Premier League manager. Because, he is now one of the few managers, who are able to win 100 times the most elite competition in the UK. Jurgen Klopp won his 100th win after playing 159 matches. As from taking over the manager’s chair from Brendan Rodgers at the end of 2015.
With a record of 159 matches and 100 wins in between, practically Klopp is better than legendary Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson. Because, Fergie got 100 wins after playing 162. The ex-Dortmund is also better when compared to Arsene Wenger. The former Arsenal manager won his 100th victory after playing 179 matches.
However, he still lost to Jose Mourinho, who in fact only needed 142 matches to carve out 100 wins, while still managing Chelsea.
Beyond the neat notes carved by Jurgen Klopp, the victory over Everton was also an important moment for Liverpool. Because, the rate of the Reds is increasingly unstoppable in this 2019/2020 season. Especially on the Premier League stage. But they also need to stay focused on the next matches, a busy schedule awaits the European champions.
