Analysis: Is the Liverpool press failing?

Analysis: Is the Liverpool press failing?

Liverpool's success since the appointment of Jurgen Klopp has been built around the press. Initially, it was full-throttle, relentless and tiring to watch. But as the team evolved, so did the press. Their approach was more meticulous, their approach was more intelligent and they seemed to take a more measured approach to it all. It made sense. The Reds weren't having to press as often because they now dominated the ball. However, as soon as there was a turnover they'd …
