Jurgen Klopp explains why Liverpool’s away form has made him an 'alcoholic’

Liverpool endured a rotten record in the Premier League last season and Reds boss Jurgen Klopp joked about his side’s fortunes following their win over Wolves.

Jurgen Klopp claims Liverpool’s poor form last season has turned him into an „alcoholic” and continues to lose a well-earned pint.

The Reds have endured a tough time away from Anfield in the past. Eight of their nine Premier League defeats have come on their travels, while they won just two away league trips before English football took an enforced break for the World Cup in Qatar.

Since then, they have definitely improved. Saturday’s 3-1 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers made it eight away games without defeat – five of which were wins. Klopp is among those relieved to see that streak continue as the German can now enjoy a drink upon his return to Merseyside.

Speaking after the full-time whistle at Molineux, the Liverpool boss said: “It’s great, it’s great, I only drink beer if we win an away game. Last year I almost became anti-alcohol! So it’s definitely better.

“But we all know that everything is new. We can’t always mention last season, how bad we were, how effective it was. But obviously we don’t want to think about our outside record anymore, so when we come to today and see the first half, we don’t think like last year. We have to do better and create something new.”

It wasn’t so straightforward for Liverpool against Wolves. The home side completely dominated throughout the opening period and were deservedly led by Hwang Hee-san.

Gary O’Neill’s men should have extended their lead and overturned a number of missed chances. Liverpool surged ahead after the break and eventually secured the three points through Cody Kakpo, Andrew Robertson and a Hugo Bueno own goal.
