Liverpool must learn to control games in Champions League


For a brief and fleeting period at the beginning of their game against Milan on Wednesday night, the Liverpool of 2017-2020 were back – and they were back with a bang.

They have offered glimpses of returning to their former glory already this season, but nothing has been quite as exquisite as this.

During the first 15 minutes of their eventual 3-2 victory, Jurgen Klopp’s charges hunted like rabid dogs, barely allowing the Rossoneri out of their own half. For the first time in a long time in Europe, Klopp’s previously well-oiled machine was firing on all cylinders.

The obscene counter-pressing, the quick exchanges, the intoxicating Anfield crowd firing the players up like a shot of amphetamine – it was all here in abundance.

The stats from that scintillating quarter of an hour are quite something. Liverpool registered 11 shots to their opponents’ one, and they also forced Milan into seven clearances. The Reds’ scored during this period too.
