Much like when Louis van Gaal took the helm at Manchester United, Liverpool have had much needed new life breathed into them by the arrival of a new man of football distinction.
A manager this communicative, humble and charismatic is always going to be given time to implement his style before too much criticism comes his way.
But the defeat of a wretched Chelsea on their own patch last weekend has made Klopp an instant hero amongst the Liverpool fans.
And rightly so. Almost immediately, Klopp has given Liverpool the look of the hunters rather than the hunted.
They pressed Chelsea and never gave them a second to relax on the ball.
This is very much a hallmark of Klopp’s style and Liverpool fans are loving it.
Another away win tonight, against opponents that they drew with at home in the last round of Europa League fixtures, will give the fans even more reason believe that the club is once more going in the right direction.
