Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp does not view the frustrating time he had last season as a “lost” campaign as he learned so much from it and the mistakes he made.

It was not a lost season, I learned more than in other seasons, but it was a difficult season and finishing that season in third position was an absolutely exceptional achievement.” Klopp has already demonstrated his faith in the less-experienced members of his squad, starting 18-year-old Harvey Elliott in three of their first four matches before a horrific fracture dislocation of his ankle at Leeds, and giving second-choice left-back Kostas Tsimikas more appearances already than he managed last season.

Klopp has been rewarded by seeing his side play some of their best football and that was evident in the first half against Saints, with Diogo Jota scoring the Premier League’s fastest goal this season after 97 seconds, adding another before Thiago Alcantara and Van Dijk completed the rout with goals either side of half-time.
