Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has summarized the performance of the match with Tottenham in the 20th round of the EPL (3-1).
“I’m quite happy. It was a fantastic match. As we expected, it was super intense. “Apart from conceding a goal, the right people scored at the right times, so we did well,” Klopp told BT Sport.
“I saw a performance today that did not represent our form, but our essence. Particularly in the second half, it was us. It’s been a real fight.
I don’t remember the Spurs always owning the ball, but anyway, we defended well. I noticed a lot of positives for myself, a good result.
Of course, since they made two changes in the line-up, you can never be sure of scoring goals as we did in the second half. But we did well with their scheme in terms of attack. We played between the lines and were close to their penalty area very often. We were good at counter-pressing, we played high but not too much in defense.”
