This shout was a recurring theme from the Liverpool touchline during the team’s opening pre-season mini-games, and it typically came when Jürgen Klopp’s men had lost possession.

Klopp incessantly urged his team forward, and a side-effect was allowing gaping amounts of room in behind.

The intent was clear: push up, close the spaces, don’t allow the opposition time to build an attack.

There should be little doubt that Liverpool’s pressing game is something that needs a reboot.

Roberto Firmino, so often the leader of Liverpool’s press in the Klopp years, dropped from 20.9 pressures per 90 minutes down to 18.9 (per FBRef).

Against RB Leipzig, the stand-out example of a successful pressing performance last season, the high-quality chances created were enough to allow Mané to overcome his goal-scoring woes.
