Klopp: When Liverpool are good they are very, very good

Jurgen Klopp piled the praise on his Liverpool side after their 4-1 victory over Leicester.

Liverpool surged into a 2-0 lead before allowing Jamie Vardy to pull one back before the break. Second-half goals from Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino put the result beyond doubt.

They now sit fifth in an embryonic Premier League table.

Klopp described Liverpool as strong physically, flexible, quick, creative. Apart from that…

“We knew we had to do the job today and that is what we did,” Klopp said.

“We were strong physically, flexible, quick, creative. We scored wonderful goals and conceded a not-too-wonderful goal and had a few minutes where you saw what can happen in a football game.

“At half-time I told the boys ‘This is our challenge’. When we are good, we are really good but when we had some problems it is not easy.

“This is the challenge for the whole season. We had a minimum 30 to 35 minutes at Arsenal which I didn’t see until then from us in the movements, which were so strong and clear.

“Leicester are really difficult to play. They are so tuned and apart from one player they played with champions (only Daniel Amartey of the Foxes’ starting line-up was not at the club last season) so everything is clear.”
