Yes, it was a relatively easy win, but, heck, do you remember what happened last year? Yeah, that penalty shoot-out vs Carlisle? It’s good omens that Liverpool, who usually blow away the big guns and croak against the minnows have convincingly sheered Derby of any false League Cup dreams, in a span of a few days after hoodwinking Chelsea. All’s good, all’s well, here’s some 5 more of those feel-great factors.

#1 Enter The Kraken

The 6’4” Marko Grujic’s appearance was perhaps the most awaited of any of the Liverpool players on show, and with good reason. The engine room to Serbia’s unprecedented Under-20 World Cup winning squad, the Belgrade-born beast of a box-to-box midfielder was finally afforded the chance to display his expertise. Full of running, an eye for a pass, a freight train into a tackle, the boy looks like he could have it all. Time will tell, though, as he evidently needs a few more games under his belt, as he ran out of steam in the second half.

#2 Coutinho’s Scores When He Wants, Really

When Coutinho decides to put his dancing boots on, he’d bring the entire cast of Dancing With The Stars to their knees. But that’s the thing, he doesn’t quite wear them often enough. The boy who is a man for the biggest of occasions seems to always turn up with those boots on, against the likes of Arsenal this season, for instance; but seems like he was wearing some s***** Crocs against the likes of Burnley. That wasn’t the case here, though, as he applied himself with a sumptuous first-time finish off a sumptuous first-time ball. Consistency, the lack of, is the only thing that’s keeping him from turning into a Super Saiyan.

#3 Big Div Could Be Liverpool’s Big Man

Did you notice how Big Div ankle swivels when he boomed the ball into the roof of the net, to completely take the goalkeeper out of the account? That was some top-notch technique there, by the Big man, who looks every part the perfect Juergen Klopp project. Blessed with pace and athleticism, he has shown the tactical understanding to intermittently drop deep to receive the ball, to get things ticking, and relieve pressure from his team-mates, and knows when to stay up, on the front foot anticipating a counter attack.

#4 Klavan Is Cooler Than The Fonz

The man looks like he was chiselled out of Baltic ballast, and consequently, nerveless with the Baltic sea running through his veins. A striker’s finish off a bobbing ball, from a scuffed clearance, the midfielder turned centre-back [at AZ Alkmaar], showed just why he’s Juergen Klopp was more than happy to send the former Augsburg hardman a selfie to convince him to join Liverpool. He’s a slow-cooked casserole of brutality and poise.

#5 Juergen Using The F-Bomb Is Boss

The Boss using the F-Word is boss. It simply means that the German who rarely ever conversed in English in his time in Borussia Dortmund, apart from addressing the press in UEFA Champions League fixtures, is adjusting to the ******g good life in England’s top flight with relative ease. Throw in a few w*****s, bo*****s and c****s, Juregen, the Liverpool fans won’t mind.
