Brannagan: This is what Klopp wants from Liverpool in attack...

Liverpool youngster Cameron Brannagan has revealed that manager Jurgen Klopp wants at least four or five players in the box when the Reds are on the front foot.

It is no secret that Liverpool boss Klopp likes to play attacking football and the Reds put in arguably their best attacking display of the season so far in the 4-3 victory over Arsenal in the opening day of the Premier League campaign.

Now midfielder Brannagan has gone on to provide a bit of insight into Klopp's thinking and has revealed that the German wants at least a handful of players inside the box when Liverpool are attacking.

Brannagan told Liverpoolfc.com: "I think there's loads to my game that I can improve on.

"I'm only a young lad and there's loads that I'm working on at the minute – my finishing around the box, my weaker foot, I was practising free-kicks and corners as much as I could.

"I'm always there working with the manager and the coaching staff after training. I'd like to add more goals to my game. When we're attacking, the manager wants as many people in the box as possible.

"If the full-backs are near the edge of the box then he wants them to get in the box. He's more concerned about you being in the box rather than not in the box.

"At a minimum when we're on the attack, he wants four or five people in the box at one time to try to score as many goals as we can."
