While Jürgen Klopp has made substantial squad changes in his time at Liverpool, the moves have not seemed to disrupt the team's chemistry. Instead, new players have have only helped push the club forward.

Georginio Wijnaldum, one of the Reds' major summer signings, said the "really fun" atmosphere around the team right now that has helped him perform better.

"Because we are winning a lot of games, it gives us a lot of confidence and we enjoy football more," Wijnaldum said (via Sky Sports). "If you don't win games, it's difficult to enjoy and see the fun in football. I work with a good manager and my teammates are good, quality players. That makes me a better player."

The midfielder added that the intensity Klopp has brought to training has helped foster a hardworking culture around the club. That has also helped Liverpool surpass expectations to this point in the season.

"If everyone trains 100 percent and we all just do our best, that makes us each a better player," Wijnaldum said. "Every training exercise we do is like a real game. Everyone has to be 100 percent, and if it's not 100 percent you will see. I'm just happy that I can be part of this team."
