Luton Town Manager Rob Edwards Reveals What He Did to Liverpool That Saw Them Win on Wednesday Night

Luton Town boss Rob Edwards has revealed what he did to Liverpool after a second-half onslaught that saw them win 4-1 at Anfield.

Rob Edwards claimed his side that his side made Liverpool “angry” as Jurgen Klopp’s squad rallied to secure a 4-1 victory at Anfield.

In the early stages, Chiedozie Ogbene capitalized on an injury-plagued Reds side, netting the opener as Klopp’s Premier League leaders faced challenges in equalizing during a tense first half on Wednesday evening.

However, a significant improvement emerged in the second half, with Virgil van Dijk’s header restoring parity for the hosts.

Subsequent goals from Cody Gakpo, Luis Diaz, and Harvey Elliott propelled Liverpool to a commanding four-point lead at the summit of the table, setting the stage for Sunday’s Carabao Cup final clash against Chelsea.

“We just made them angry,” Edwards conceded. “Overall it was a really good first half, second half I thought we saw Anfield; we saw Liverpool; we saw their full-throttle football. Their counter-pressing football was amazing.

“In the end, a great learning for us to see what the best looks like. I know they had some players missing but their second half performance was like the best out there. I thought we were very, very good, they were better.

“You look at our group, there won’t be many who have experienced Anfield like that. Hopefully in the future we can come back. You almost have to live through some of that to get better.”

Edwards added: “[We] started a little bit stronger and then we grew into it, looked good, They are going to start coming after us and they did. Second half, hopefully Sambi is alright but forced into making a change.

“We didn’t use that space in behind and they suffocated us. The lads kept going. We were still pushing at the end, didn’t sit back and accept defeat. I am proud of the players but tonight we came up against a better team. We experienced what elite looks like.

“Great for Chie, that is what we want from our wide players, arriving in the box. Great for him, scoring at the Kop, with the journey he has had.

“Second half their real threat came from their counter pressing and intensity. It is disappointing to concede from a set-piece and a throw-in. I don’t think we looked like a bad team, we just struggled in bits.”
