Liverpool has been one of the biggest names in the footballing circuit. They have a rich heritage of football. The club has made regular appearances in the English Premier League for years.
However, they were deprived of the coveted trophy for a fairly long amount of time. This was largely because of the inconsistency of the players. LFC has always had a bunch of promising and talented players.
But the only thing missing from their ranks was consistency. The incorporation of Jurgen Klopp into the system made drastic changes to the side. Klopp incorporated new players and gave LFC a new look. Under the guidance of Klopp, LFC has prospered like never before. They have won the League title a couple of years back.
They are now a strong contender for the Uefa Champions League as well. Liverpool faced off against Benfica in their recent match. The Reds did not have any difficulty in winning the match. Let us learn more about the game in detail below.
