Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp said his side are a joy to watch when they find top gear, like they did against Freiburg on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp: Thrilled by five-star display

Marco Reus and Robert Lewandowski each struck twice in a 5-0 win over Freiburg which improved Dortmund's goal difference compared to Bayern Munich, who remain level with them at the top of the table on 19 points.

Klopp, who will be suspended from the touchline for Dortmund's Champions League clash with Marseille in midweek, is now looking forward to following his side from the stands of the Westfalenstadion if they can serve up such a treat again.

"When my team get going, then this job is such a pleasure," Klopp told Sky television. "The first half was truly exceptional.

"I'm absolutely delighted with our first 44 minutes. You just can't play a better pressing game than that."

Klopp's one-match UEFA suspension means he will be among the 71,000 fans watching the game from the stands on Tuesday night, but he is not concerned about his orders getting across to his team.

"I'm allowed to drive into the stadium with my team, but then I have to leave them," he said.

"It's going to be unusual, but Zeljko (Buvac) and I tend to work telepathically anyway so we're not going to need any other kind of contact."

W

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
