Jurgen Klopp has cleverly thanked Liverpool fans for their electric support after wildly celebrating a point against West Brom at Anfield.

After saying he “felt very alone” during the latter stages of a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace early in his reign, Liverpool fans responded by backing their side until the final seconds; they were rewarded with an injury-time equaliser from Divock Origi.

Klopp led his players in celebration in front of the Kop and then told reporters:  “Yesterday we spoke about the special atmosphere, and it was a special atmosphere.

“Maybe the crowd was disappointed but the thing was they didn’t let us feel it.

“We all were in the game, we all were concentrated, we all wanted to get this one point at the end.

“It felt like three points, I know it’s only one. This moment it was like an explosion. It was the best atmosphere since I’ve been here, I really enjoyed it.

“At the end I just wanted to say thank you, I don’t know if this is normal in England or things like this.

“But together with the team it was great. It was absolutely great.

“Sometimes a point deserved in the right way is more important. We all wanted three points, it’s important for the table of course, but for development so many things are important.

“The style of play, everybody tells us we can’t play this type of team. Yes we can, we did everything, we were in the box, created chances, we made a brilliant goal. Everything.

“Then we got two set plays. And to stay in the game, only to be disappointed for a few seconds and to come back in again.

“I really enjoyed with this one point – it’s a big difference from none – and I enjoyed the atmosphere with my whole body. It was great.”
