Jurgen Klopp: I am very pleased, very satisfied with all of the 93 minutes


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was delighted with the reaction showed by his players against Manchester City.

The Reds looked visibly disappointed after losing Sunday's final against the Citizens but bounced back straight away as they eased past Manuel Pellegrini's side by 3-0 at Anfield on Wednesday.

And the German was full of praise for his players after the game.

"I am very pleased, very satisfied with all of the 93 minutes," Klopp told reporters.

"It was really good from the first second. We spoke about the final after the game, we spoke about this game tonight; it was very important we showed the reaction, that we are disappointed because of the final but not so disappointed that it could have an influence on the performance tonight in a negative way.

"The boys did brilliantly from the first second – they were very lively, very disciplined and very angry in a positive football way on each ball.

"The preparation of pressing situations was brilliant, the pressing situation itself was brilliant and the counter-pressing was good.

"Then you have to score goals and that's what we did tonight too. It makes life easier as a football player and goals at the right moment make it much easier.

"That's what we did in the first half. Then we had a few minutes where we were too risky in our passing game and gave them the ball too easy, so we had to run.

"After 120 minutes [on Sunday], it is not too easy but we did it. The break was no problem for us tonight, it was good. In the second half, the team played really smartly, played football, played simply and quick and still created chances.

"It was a fantastic goal for 3-0 and the rest was absolutely good."
