Dirk Kuyt, a former Liverpool player, has praised the quality of Liverpool's high press, saying, "It's like having an extra man on the pitch."

The Dutchman was commenting after Liverpool's 4-0 win over Arsenal, in which Jurgen Klopp's side used relentless pressing to force the Gunners into errors.

“One of the biggest qualities of this Liverpool team at the moment is the way the team does the high press,” the 41-year-old wrote in his Liverpool FC column (via Liverpool Echo).

“The intensity of it, how they recover the ball and create chances from it is just so impressive.

“Seeing how the fans react to the way the team presses the opponent is so important, too. It’s like having an extra man on the pitch.

“Knowing from experience, it really helps to have the crowd behind you when you’re giving absolutely everything you’ve got to press high.”
