Liverpool just 1 point away from feat that underlines Jurgen Klopp point

Liverpool are just one point away from proving Jurgen Klopp's point - and it could come against Arsenal this weekend. The Reds will take on a title rival at the Emirates.

Liverpool's transformation this season has been extraordinary. The Reds were quite awful, by their standards, last season and opted to rebuild things over the summer.

Out went veteran players, in came some young talents with big potential. In fact, Liverpool didn't even get the players they necessarily wanted - deals for Moises Caicedo, Andre and Romeo Lavia fell apart.

The Reds should really have had an inconsistent year with ups and downs. Instead, they're top of the Premier League, in the Carabao Cup final and competing in both the FA Cup and UEFA Europa League.

There are plenty of ways to show that transformation but one of the better ones is in their away form this season. Liverpool have already matched their win tally away from home in the Premier League last season, while they're just one point away from matching their points.

And that's with eight games still to play.

It really underlines a point from Jurgen Klopp as he prepares to leave Liverpool at the end of the season. Klopp reportedly told players that 'they were too darn good quicker than he anticipated', per The Telegraph.

Klopp himself expected this team to grow over the years before reaching this level. Instead, they're competing at the very top already, after just one summer of change.

That highlights just how quickly things happened over the summer - and how 'right' Liverpool were in the moves they made. They transformed a side from struggling and slipping into one that has all the potential in the world.

After all, this is a young team of players who are supposed to need patience. They're still developing and whoever the new manager is this summer, they're getting a squad that's ready to compete for years to come.
