Jürgen Klopp hails Sturridge for performance

Liverpool won yesterday in their derby 0-1 over Everton. Their coach has hailed one of their players especially.

Daniel Sturridge scored yesterday almost a goal for his side but hit just the post. However, his coach is impressed by his performance and said agter the match:" When you have Daniel on the bench you are always thinking about when is the right time to bring him on.

"It is an unusual situation but at the same time a good option when you can bring on his fresh legs when the game is so tight. He helped us a lot tonight in a difficult game.

"We lost James McCarthy and then Maarten Stekelenburg, so when you then have to endure eight minutes of added time it makes it difficult,"Koeman said. "It was a cruel way to lose, the fans and the players did not deserve a defeat tonight but we have to accept it. I can’t complain about the efforts of my players, maybe we just needed to be more lucky. It was a tough game for both, Liverpool were more comfortable in the second half but they did not create open chances. They had more possession then, showed some good movement. They are some team.

"It was a bit hectic at first but we were expecting that and I thought we dealt with it very well. We kept our heads and we dominated the game afterwards," he added.
