If you are 1-0 down for example against Liverpool, we come back and it's not the first time. "He's getting better", Klopp is quoted as saying by Sky Sports. But while the game was a fun, intense contest for the neutral, the Liverpool manager spent much of the first half in a state of agitation, unhappy with what he deemed a substandard display from his team.
Speaking to the media after the 1-1 stalemate, Klopp revealed Milner gave his team-mates a stern telling off for their first-half performance at Arsenal.
I'm impressed how quickly they have improved under Unai Emery and given they haven't lost since the second match of the season, Liverpool shouldn't dismiss going back home with a result. "I would like it if you write a story about James Milner". Obviously someone might write that he will have to play for England again.
"You have a compact formation, you force [Arsenal] to pass the ball somewhere - that's pressing, it's not that complicated", said Klopp. We scored a really nice goal, had super counter-attacks, played good football in a lot of moment.

Despite his team's uncharacteristically bold start, Emery still managed to engineer an urgency in the second half that, in little more than three months at Arsenal, has become the animated Spaniard's calling card.
'That's how it is in the dressing room. "Millie is a proper leader".
It's tempting to look at Liverpool's front three and be intimidated but when they had the ball, they were courageous and got players forward, their full-backs high up the pitch, to ask questions.
It was Milner's third goal of the season - but it was not enough to take all three points.
