Jürgen Klopp: The whole of LFC showed a reaction tonight

Jurgen Klopp

11th February 2017

Jürgen Klopp highlighted several satisfying facets of Liverpool’s performance after watching his side turn in a powerful display to defeat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Anfield on Saturday evening.

The Reds picked up their first three points of 2017 in the Premier League thanks to an energetic and tenacious showing against their fellow top-four rivals.

It was two quick-fire Sadio Mane goals in the first half that did the damage, but Klopp was left to savour his team’s desire, hunger and intensity throughout the contest as they returned to winning ways in convincing fashion.

Read on for a transcript of the manager’s post-match press conference in full…

On his happiness with the result and performance…

Very – with both. It can be different, you can win a game and you are not happy with the performance. Tonight I’m really happy with the performance, with a few specific things of the performance. First half, the offensive part of the game was really strong, really direct, really clear, really together. The second goal showed [it]. I don’t know how many players tried to finish [and] at the end Sadio could finish. Then in the second half, in a situation like our situation – of course, we knew that we had to show a reaction – you cannot expect the highest confidence. It’s more [that] you have to fight yourself [into] the game. It was very important that today we did both – we fought and we played.

Then, the second half was another game and a different game. Tottenham changed formation a little bit already in the first half. [We had] to adapt to this a little, it’s difficult with three offensive players in the centre. But we really dealt well with it and were really concentrated, improved defensively in this game and learned from the game. That was really good and I think it was absolutely well deserved. The atmosphere [was] fantastic, you could really feel that everybody was waiting for a game like this again. So, for tonight everything is good.
