Sheffield United Boss Chris Wilder Gives The Ultimate Compliment To Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool

Sheffield United Boss Chris Wilder Gives The Ultimate Compliment To Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool

Chris Wilder has praised runaway league leaders Liverpool and believes Jurgen Klopp's men are well on "their way to being Premier League champions."

The Reds brushed aside Sheffield United on Thursday with a comfortable 2-0 victory at Anfield to remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season.

And Liverpool, who are the clear favourites to win the league title, are 13 points clear of second-placed Leicester City and 14 points ahead of defending champions Manchester City.

During his post-match interview, Sheffield United boss Wilder said the opposition was "outstanding" and loved "everything about them."

The 52-year-old told BT Sport: "Both parts of the game we couldn't lay a glove on them, didn't do anything that has got us in this position.

"I thought they were outstanding, but they didn't have to get out of second or third gear.

"People talk about academy coaches and all of this nonsense about technical and tactical stuff: when we played them at our place, we laid a glove on them and made it difficult for them.

"[Here] they won every first ball, every second ball, dropped on every second ball, ran forward and ran back, and they did that miles better than us.

"So when academy coaches and all this nonsense that comes out about coaching, have a little peek at Liverpool tonight, like I said playing in second and third gear.

"They still had the humility and the desire to do that as world champions, as European champions, and obviously well on their way to being Premier League champions."

He added: "I've got to say, when you go into the Premier League, you possibly do expect one of these performances along the way, so for it to be our 20th or 21st and it's the first time it's happened then I can take a little bit of comfort from that.

"But certainly now we need to dust ourselves off; thankfully, we've played Liverpool twice.

"I wish Jurgen and Liverpool all the best, I love everything about them: the way they go about, tactical and technical players, but the top bit, the physical and mental part of it, is amazing.

"And if that's good enough for them, it's certainly good enough for anyone else."

Goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane sealed Liverpool's 2-0 win on the night, with the Reds only dropping two points this season.

Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino also stole the limelight after he pulled off a sensational first touch before half-time.
