Klopp That! 6 Memorable Liverpool Wins Over Top 6 Rivals Under Jürgen Klopp

Since the arrival of Jürgen Klopp on Merseyside in October 2015, Liverpool have topped the fictional 'top six mini-league' in England.


Following their 4-3 victory over Manchester City that ended the Citizens' unbeaten run recently, we take a look at the six most memorable victories Klopp's side has secured over England's top six in the German's time as Liverpool manager: 

6. Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool (31/10/15)

This victory at Stamford Bridge was not only Klopp's first against a top six side as Reds' boss, but also his first Premier League win overall following, initial draws against Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton in the Anfield hot seat. 


After an early Ramires opener for the hosts, a finely-taken Philippe Coutinho equaliser on the stroke of half-time kickstarted a second half revival for the Reds.


A second from Coutinho alongside a Christian Benteke strike secured a 3-1 win for Klopp's side, to send the travelling fans into bedlam and officially ignite Klopp's reign at Anfield.

5. Manchester City 1-4 Liverpool (21/11/15)

The Reds' thrashing of Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City side in November 2015 was arguably the first occasion the Premier League bore witness to the full effects of Klopp's 'gegenpressing' tactics.


Following an Eliagium Mangala own goal, beautifully worked efforts from Brazilian duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino - his first for the club - respectively capped a pulsating first half display. A late Martin Skrtel thunderbolt would subsequently seal a memorable win at the Etihad Stadium for Klopp and Liverpool.

4. Arsenal 3-4 Liverpool (14/08/16)

After an average showing from Klopp's men on the opening day of last season, a perfectly executed Philippe Coutinho free-kick to cancel out Theo Walcott's opener for the Gunners set up a thrilling encounter at the Emirates.


An electric seven-minute second half spell saw Liverpool bag three goals - including a Sadio Mané wonder-strike on his debut - to runaway with the game and hush the home crowd.


An Arsenal fightback proved to be in vain as Klopp's men held on to kick start their 2016/17 campaign. 

3. Liverpool 2-0 Tottenham (11/02/17)

A mid-season dip in form from the Reds meant many had backed Mauricio Pochettino's high-flying Spurs side to earn their first league win at Anfield in six years when they travelled to Merseyside last February.


Unfortunately for the Londoners however, they came up against a Klopp team back to their old tricks. 


A high-energy first half showing blew Tottenham away as two strikes in the opening 20 minutes courtesy of Sadio Mané secured all three points for the Reds; all but ending Spurs' title aspirations for another season in the process.

2. Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal (27/08/17)

A dazzling attacking display from Klopp's side against Arsenal in August saw the Reds sweep past their opponents with ease, and secure their third successive victory over the Gunners.


An outstanding curling effort from Sadio Mané doubled Liverpool's first half lead following a Roberto Firmino header, before the Anfield faithful got a first glimpse of Mohamed Salah's blistering pace for Liverpool's third.


Substitute Daniel Sturridge nodded in a fourth for the hosts as Liverpool again left Arsene Wenger's side red faced.

1. Liverpool 4-3 Manchester City (14/01/18)

The win over Pep Guardiola's champions-elect characterised everything that's good about Jürgen Klopp's tactical approach.


Insightful and rigorous pressing from the front, coupled with neat interchanges and deadly finishing, meant Liverpool achieved what no other team have managed so far this season and beat Manchester City


Under the lights at Anfield, four magnificent finishes from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah respectively secured another memorable win for Klopp's men against a fellow top six side.
