Jugren Klopp seems to be fulfilling his promise of bringing high energy and exciting football to Anfield.

Liverpool are enjoying a good run of form having won four of their last five games in all competitions. One of those games was a thrilling 4-3 victory over Klopp's former team, Borussia Dortmund, which saw the Reds go through to the semi-finals of the Europa league. 

However, it was the nature of the win that made the world take notice. Liverpool came back from a 3-1 deficit, with about 30 minutes remaining, to win the match 4-3 on the night and 5-4 on aggregate.

The encounter was reminiscent of Liverpool's incredible comeback win over AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final. 

It was a game befitting the electrifying atmosphere of a European night at Anfield. The game saw inspired performances from the likes of Mamadou Sakho, Dejan Lovren and Philippe Coutinho.

During this four match winning streak, Liverpool managed to brush aside Stoke City and Everton at home, scoring four goals on both occasions. They also registered a 2-1 victory at Bournemouth. 

However, their progress was halted by Newcastle United at Anfield, as a relegation-threatened United came from 2-0 down to snatch a point from the jaws of defeat.

Liverpool seemed to be coasting to a 2-0 victory at half-time but Rafael Benitez's team came back strong in the second half to clinch a crucial 2-2 draw. 

Improvement in Players

Several players have improved and risen to the occasion time and time again during the course of this campaign. 

Sakho has enjoyed a great improvement in form from previous seasons and has become a regular in the first team. 

The French international received plaudits for his tireless performances in both legs of the Europa League quarter-final clash with Dortmund, scoring crucial goals in both matches. 

However, the defender did not feature in the game against Newcastle due to being caught in a doping scandal and has been suspended until further notice. 

Lovren's Liverpool career seems to have kick started in the last few months after experiencing a dismal first season at the club. His stoppage time winner against Dortmund was probably the most important goal of his footballing career, sending players and supporters into a frenzy. 

Lucas and James Milner have brought stability to the midfield and their experience has proven to be crucial in big games. 

Attacking players such as Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino provide a constant source of threat for the opposition and combine well with the ever present Coutinho to initiate quick counter attacks. 

Another player that has risen from relative obscurity is Divock Origi. The 21-year-old has enjoyed a golden streak of form in 2016 after replacing Belgian compatriot Christian Benteke as Liverpool's primary striker. 

The young forward suffered an ankle injury which Klopp has described as "serious" but not season ending, as reported by ESPN

Daniel Sturridge has slotted in as the main striker in the Belgian's absence, and has already managed score against Everton and Newcastle. 

High-Tempo Football

The greatest aspect of Klopp's style of play is the high energy and tempo with which his players play. It almost seems as if the opponent has no time on the ball. 

When not in possession, midfielders close in quickly, often in the opposition's half, in order to win the ball back and deploy a counter attack. Due to the presence of quick players, Liverpool are able to do just that. 

During attacks, everyone except for the two center backs tend to push forward with Alberto Moreno and Nathaniel Clyne essentially operating as wingers. 

This high tempo style of play is exciting to watch and with electrifying nature of the home crowd, opponents often find themselves under immense pressure. 

Klopp's Immense Passion

Klopp is an emotional character on the sidelines. He celebrates every crucial tackle, important save and successful attack as much as a goal. 

He appeals to the Liverpool fans and his passion is complimented by the atmosphere presented at Anfield. 

Not only does this increase the morale of the players but also pressurizes the opposing team.
