Klopp on ‘perfect afternoon’ and Coutinho’s new role

Jurgen Klopp

Jürgen Klopp reflected on ‘a perfect afternoon’ as he delivered his post-match verdict following Liverpool’s 4-0 win over West Ham United at the London Stadium on Sunday.

The Reds claimed a crucial three points in their push for a top-four finish as a Philippe Coutinho brace and goals from Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi saw off the Hammers.

Speaking at a press conference after full-time, Klopp provided an update on the fitness of absent forward Roberto Firmino, which you can read here.

To see what else the boss had to say in his media briefing, read our transcript below.

On ‘a perfect afternoon’ at the London Stadium…

Looking back now, it was hard work, and there were a few moments where the game could have changed. I thought we had a real deserved win, it was a really good football game. The start was not that good, we changed system obviously [and] the one thing that is then new is a little bit of the situation on the wing. The big chance they had [at] the second post area, we did not that good in this moment. But they couldn’t score, then we controlled the game, then we scored the goal [and] we had another big chance with the header. We were the dominant side [but] they had absolutely one of the biggest chances I’ve ever seen in my life. They didn’t score so that was a lucky moment for us.

The start of the second half was brilliant, we played really good football and we were more direct and used the information from the first half and from half-time. We [tried] a few different moves, a few different surprising movements and [had] better timing in passing and running. It’s easy to say and much more difficult to do but the boys did really brilliant. We scored the goals, controlled the game, could have scored more often but that’s completely OK that we didn’t. A perfect afternoon.
