Liverpool changed their formation for an incredible comeback at Molineux

Liverpool

After conceding early in the first-half, Liverpool changed their plans and formation for an incredible comeback against Wolves at Molineux.

Reds conceded an early goal as South Korean winger Hwang Hee-chan scored in the opening ten minutes for the home team. However, Cody Gakpo scored the equaliser and then Andy Robertson took the game home as Liverpool ended match 3:1.

The Scottish full-back was quite happy to score for Liverpool in his 200th apperance for the club. While speaking in post-match interview, Robertson credited Jurgen Klopp for shift change of plans in the second-half. He said :-

“I can tell you some of it probably, but not all of it!” he joked when asked what was said between players and staff at half-time.“Look, we obviously weren’t at the races [in the] first half.

“You can come up with excuses with lads travelling the world and things like that, but at the end of the day, you have to be ready to play the game.

“I think it took us 45 minutes to get into it. Wolves were the better team, they created the best chances, put us under pressure, we made too many mistakes.

“But second half we came out, changed our formation slightly, went to a kind of 4-4-2 and I think it worked.

“We started pushing people higher up the pitch and I think we dominated the second half, probably got what we deserved out of the second-half performance.”

Jurgen Klopp changed plans for Second-half for Liverpool

Manager Jurgen Klopp changed plans for second-half at Molineux as Reds were struggling to win the ball in the first-half.

Speaking in the post-match interview, the German admitted that he recognised the switch as Mac Allister was subbed off to bring Luis Diaz in. Klopp discussed the matter and said:-

“We couldn’t change five times at half-time, so we thought we’d change the system and one player.

“It gave us a bit more speed up front, natural speed, and we had the control of the game better.

“We changed pretty much everything at half-time and that worked out pretty well.

“The first half was really bad and the second half was really good. Do I want to see that every week? No. But for today, I take it.”
