‘Insane’: Jurgen Klopp shocked after what two Liverpool players managed to do against Wolves

Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, has described his team’s second goal against Wolves last night as “insane”.

The Reds secured their third win in four Premier League matches by scoring two late goals against their opponents at Anfield.

While Liverpool faced some difficulties during the match, Mohamed Salah’s goal, which put them 2-0 ahead, was a standout moment.

The goal originated from Alisson Becker’s elegant chip towards Kostas Tsimikas on the halfway line.

Tsimikas executed a cushioned header that Cody Gakpo played a precise one-touch volley to, down the left-wing.

Following the impressive play by Gakpo, Kostas Tsimikas took control of the ball and quickly outran Craig Dawson before sending a sharp pass into the six-yard box.

Mohamed Salah was there to receive the ball and effortlessly directed it into the net using his thigh.

This goal sealed the victory for Liverpool. After the game, Klopp spoke highly of Tsimikas and Salah, praising their performance.

“The second goal was insane,” beamed Jurgen. “Super counter-attack, top passes, the patience of Kostas is super – waiting until Mo is finally in the right place, then he just brings it over the line. Then controlling it [the game] again and it made it a great night.”

Despite some unimpressive performances by Liverpool this season, there have been some goals that showcase Jurgen Klopp’s signature style of play.

The two goals scored against Everton are a good example of this, as they demonstrate that the classic Liverpool style is still present in the team. The goal scored last night to seal the win is yet another indication that Klopp’s signature style is alive and well.

Usually, it is Andy Robertson who charges down the left side of Anfield, which we have witnessed many times over the years, seamlessly transitioning from defense to attack and often leading to a Robertson assist – a classic Liverpool move.

However, in last night’s game, it was Kostas Tsimikas who shone. Although he had a slow start and appeared sluggish in the beginning, he grew into the game and eventually set up Mohamed Salah’s goal, which was his sixth assist of the season – an impressive feat for the 26-year-old.

It’s worth noting that Robertson, who is the first-choice left-back for Liverpool, has only one more assist than Tsimikas. While it’s unlikely that Tsimikas will get more game time due to Robertson’s prominence in the team, his quality as a backup is evident.

Last night’s game was another reminder of what Tsimikas brings to Liverpool’s squad.
