FANS loved Jurgen Klopp’s reaction to Liverpool’s pressing against Leeds.
The Reds beat the relegation-threatened side at Elland Road to boost their chances of qualifying for European football next season.
Cody Gakpo gave Liverpool the lead and Mo Salah controlled them before half-time.
Although Luis Sinisterra temporarily put the hosts back in the game. They couldn’t handle Liverpool’s fast attack as they pulled away.
Salah, Diogo Jota (two goals) and Darwin Nunez scored the winner after a brilliant second-half performance.
What Klopp was most impressed with, however, was the team’s “counterpressing”, which he described as “the best game in decades”.
And Sky Sports cameras caught his reaction to a late pressing from his side, during which he slumped in his seat with glee.
One person roughly described it as a “Klopp-Gasm” on Twitter, while another said: “That’s why he’s the best manager, you could see the passion for his team.”
A third wrote: “He’s been waiting for this all season 😂❤️.”
A fourth said: “That, that, that! But if we’re also zero-zero! That was missing for a while.”

While a fifth added: “Brilliant that. Jürgen all over the place. Something we were missing.”
After the game, Klopp spoke with great joy about his team’s performance.
When asked if he enjoyed the game, he said: “(Enjoy?) A lot. The best game we’ve played this season.
“We made a lot of mistakes. Sensational goals. Clever counter-pressing, best game in…decades! A long time ago! My favorite situation is 92nd Minute and four players chase the Leeds player down.
“We had a really good week of training. I could have made 3 or 4 different line-ups. The guys had a lot of fun training this week.
“Eight games to go and we have to keep doing what we did tonight.
“Where we end up I don’t know, but it will continue after this season. We need the results to create something new.
“We have to build on great achievements. I have no idea if we can come close anywhere. I would like to see us with the same desire, passion and understanding.”
