However bizarre it may sound, especially to Liverpool fans, it is indeed true that after a tally of 54 games in charge at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp has gone on and achieved stats that are identical in the Premier League to that of his predecessor and previously sacked manager Brendan Rodgers.

Despite showing improvements in the style of play, outclassing big name opponents and sticking around in the top 4 this season under the German Manager, Liverpool have not shown any major improvement in the area where it matters the most, the points.

Both Rodgers and Klopp share the stat of winning 26, losing 12 and drawing 16 out of their first 54 games at Anfield.

Klopp was all set to go way past this points tally but a horrible start in January for his team with a recent defeat coming against Hull and no win in the league, the flow has been certainly damaged if not stopped.

There is no doubt that Liverpool are in a better place with Klopp than they were with Rodgers by reaching two cup finals and one Semi-final but not winning any titles and slipping out of the top 4 last week is a scary sign for the fans and the manager.

Rodgers came agonisingly close to winning the league with Liverpool in his last spell before ‘slipping’ up in the last few games and being sacked next season with his team hanging on in 10th place.

Klopp took over and finished at 8th at the end of the season and since then, his players have shown the signs of a team almost ready to burst out of a bubble and go win something.
