Klopp: "Liverpool win deserved"
Liverpool travelled yesterday to Everton and won, thanks to Mane's goal, 0-1. They are still second in the table, having 37 points.
"Enjoyed is maybe not the right word, it was quite intense and very, very happy after the game," he said. "It was a deserved win in a difficult game. You saw the reaction of our supporters, so obviously they were happy too. It is the best thing you can do on a night like this," the coach said after the match.
"We did not give a lot of chances away, I can't remember one chance for Everton and whatever you want to do in a football game you need to be ready to respect what an opponent wants to do. And the plan of Everton obviously was wild football, so they were chasing us in the first half, man on man, man orientated in midfield. We could have done better, but it is really difficult to adapt to something like this quicker.
"I am pretty sure that in two or three months we can react to situations like this much better, maybe next week already, but today we are not surprised because we knew it. But we could not handle it, so we let us fix on one side, especially Dejan [Lovren] when he took the ball with the first touch.
"You have to play and let them run, then they lose being compact and then you can play channel passes. So we did that second half much better, let them run, play simple and quick football, created more chances and could have scored earlier. But actually I do not care when, I take it when it is and I think it was a deserved win".
He added: "I saw a lot of match winners actually. Sadio scored the goal, Daniel, we needed someone who could shoot the ball to the post and all the others. So it is a difficult game for Roberto Firmino today, but he is so important for us.
"It is not the most easy moment for him, but he is so important and always in the game and always able to make something special. Ginj [Georginio Wijnaldum] really strong, Adam [Lallana] not genius, but really strong again".
