Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: “Norwich has a very different style but played a proper game, defended deep, had their counter-attacks, made it really tricky for us. We had moments and then the game can look completely different, then a deflected ball can be pretty decisive, but these boys just don’t give up. We know when you fight with City, City most of the time they win games so all we can do is focus on ourselves and see what happens at the end of the season.”
Norwich manager Dean Smith: “I have to be honest and a realist and ultimately we got what we deserved – nil points. We asked some serious questions of a good team and it took a front three of Salah, Mane, and Diaz to ultimately take the points away from us. Certainly, there are some things we could have done better.”
