Alan Shearer left in awe of Jurgen Klopp as Gary Lineker issues Liverpool title warning



Liverpool moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League thanks to their 4-0 win over AFC Bournemouth.

Alan Shearer was left in awe of Jurgen Klopp following Liverpool’s win over AFC Bournemouth.

The German is on course to steer the Reds into another title challenge as they pit their wits against Arsenal and Manchester City. Liverpool are five points clear at the top of the table following their emphatic 4-0 win away at Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool turned on the style in the second-half against the Cherries, thanks to doubles from both Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota. Andoni Iraola’s side posed a difficult challenge as they were just behind the Reds in the form table ahead of the encounter, but the quality of Jurgen Klopp’s side told in the end.

City have played a game less than their North West rivals and have a five-point gap to overhaul if they are to continue their stranglehold at the top of the English top-flight.

The Reds are receiving plaudits for their showings in all competitions as they continue to defy pre-season expectations to challenge back at the summit. Lineker claimed that the Anfield club will be difficult to chase and added that you would hate to play against him but love to play in Klopp’s side.

He told the Rest is Football podcast: “They’re going to take some pegging back this season, he’s good Klopp isn’t he? He’s the sort of manager he’d drive you mad playing against him, you’d want to play for him wouldn’t you?”

Klopp was animated on the touchline at the Vitality Stadium and was involved in back-and-forth during the second-half after Conor Bradley was cynically hauled down. The Liverpool boss was also left baffled after a high tackle from Justin Kluivert on Luis Diaz, which went unpunished.

Shearer added that the antics of the Reds boss would irritate fans of opposition clubs, but from a Liverpool perspective, it’s exactly what you want to see.

He said: “He’s better than good by the way, he’s such a brilliant manager – he’s unbelievable.

“Very good. I know it’s sometimes annoying (Klopp on the touchline) but as a Liverpool fan you must love that, love his passion, love his care, attention to detail for their football club. As a fan that’s what you want as a manager.”
