Jurgen Klopp: We were concentrated until the end and deserved to win


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised the focus of his players after last night's 1-0 away win at Sunderland.

With Leicester City, Manchester City and Manchester United all dropping points, the win allowed the Reds to edge closer to the top part of the table.

And the German was delighted after the final whistle.

"It's better if you decide the game early and things like this but we are not in wonderland," Klopp explained.

"We had to wait for the special moment and work for it, and that's what we did.

"We took the right information from the first half to try to do better in the second half. We started with better pressing in different situations.

"It's always the biggest challenge in a game where the first thing to do is fight for second balls, to find the right moment for creative football and in defence for pressing. That's not too easy.

"In the first half, obviously we had a lot of possession, no real chance or opportunity for Sunderland. They had some set-plays and one counter-attack, I think, but it was a big challenge for us.

"After half-time we forced this goal and could have scored the second one and the decision would have been made, but we didn't.

"So we had to stay concentrated until the end. We were and it was a deserved win."
