Klopp’s side have won 11 of their opening 17 Premier League games this season, with wins over Arsenal, Chelsea, and Leicester indicative of their title credentials, yet they really needed that victory over Everton on Monday after a trickier spell which had seen them drop points against Bournemouth and West Ham.
