Liverpool centre-half Ragnar Klavan claims that Liverpool are ‘slowly’ getting better at defending set-pieces.

The Reds conceded 12 goals from corners in the Premier League last season but there has been a noticeable improvement in this campaign.

“We work a lot on defensive set-pieces and also offensive ones,” said Klavan.

“Slowly, you can see our defensive ones are getting better and also our offensive ones – we are nicking some goals.”

The Estonian scored the opener in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Derby County on Tuesday night.

“It’s a really nice moment as an individual but I was really happy that I could help the team,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“We had a lot of possession and dominated the game but we didn’t score [at first], but I was in the right place at the right moment – or maybe the wrong place, I don’t know!

“I was there and made a goal and after that we didn’t give away any goals and, to the end, we were good.”
