A highlights package from Liverpool’s extraordinary 3-2 win against QPR in October 2014 circulating on Twitter has reminded LFC fans how much they have to be thankful for nowadays.
We may have won the match thanks to Steven Caulker’s own goal at the death, but that’s not what stands out.
The defensive display from Glen Johnson, Martin Skrtel, Dejan Lovren and Jose Enrique was nightmare-inducing.
But for some remarkable misses from Harry Redknapp’s bottom-of-the-table side, we could easily have been dealt a thrashing.
Fast forward five years, and the one or two jitters we’ve seen from our backline in our early games don’t seem so significant.
You can brave the video by clicking below. Watch out for Mario Balotelli inexplicably skying a sitter.
When you watch this Liverpool and then consider what we have become since Jurgen Klopp joined, it's why we called him a world class manager even before he won us trophies. pic.twitter.com/zk0gYWxJS6
