A breakdown of Jurgen Klopp’s incredible record vs big six at Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp continued his impressive record against the Premier League’s big six with a comfortable 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday. 

Klopp took charge of his first Liverpool game in October 2015, a 0-0 draw against Tottenham, and has since built a team that is one of the best in Europe.

Astute signings like Sadio Mane have certainly helped, while Thiago looks like a bargain at £25million after an impressive debut against Frank Lampard’s side.

But Klopp deserves a lot of praise for the Reds’ brilliant record against the rest of the ‘big six’ in all competitions over the last few years, and we’ve taken a closer look at the stats.
