Klopp: Smart and emotional Reds deserved derby win

1st April 2017

Jürgen Klopp felt Liverpool were both ‘smart and emotional’ in order to claim what he believes was a fully deserved 3-1 victory over Everton at Anfield on Saturday.

The Reds triumphed over the Blues in the 228th edition of the Merseyside derby with a fine display to bolster their hopes of securing a top-four finish in the Premier League.

A wonderful solo goal from Sadio Mane set them on their way to three points, though it was cancelled out when Matthew Pennington stabbed home a loose ball inside the box midway through the first half following a corner.

Nevertheless, Everton’s joy lasted a matter of moments as a stunning strike from Philippe Coutinho restored the hosts’ lead before Divock Origi came off the bench to make certain of victory with a thumping finish in the second period.

Afterwards, Klopp addressed journalists in his post-match press conference at Anfield – and you can read on for a transcript of the media briefing below…

On whether it was a deserved victory for Liverpool…

Yes, I thought it was deserved. Like always, you have to learn a little bit from the game. We knew about the intensity we needed to be ready for, and I thought we were. After the first few minutes we controlled the game, we found the spaces between their lines, we brought Phil into really good positions. I said to the boys before the game that it needs to be a mixture of being really smart and emotional – not only emotional. I thought they did really well, controlled it and scored fantastic goals. I’m not sure anybody has the assist for Sadio’s goal or Phil’s goal, they did it pretty much by themselves. It was really nice and important, especially after the equaliser, after a set-piece.
