Liverpool boss satisfied with ball possession rate

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has expressed his satisfaction with the possession-based football his side is playing this season.

The Reds are currently averaging more ball possession than any other Premier League team which is something Klopp has tried to instil in his playing group since his arrival in October last year.

He said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football: "I mention it a lot – I say we are a ball possession team.

"We have the ball most of the time so why [do] I always get asked about 'can you play with this intensity against the ball?' and all that stuff? I know we have the ball a lot and in most of the games we have it much more, even against [Manchester] City and all the teams who have the ball very often too.

"That's good, we are in a good way, but we can still do better."
