Jurgen Klopp: What went through my mind and why I made such changes after James Milner's red card


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Sunday's win over Crystal Palace is a big moment for his side as they moved closer to the Top Four.

Despite going down to ten men, the Reds produced an impressive comeback at Selhurst Park with Christian Benteke scoring a stoppage-time penalty for his team.

And Klopp was full of praise for the 25-year-old who kept his cool from the penalty spot.

"I'm pretty happy. It was well deserved," Klopp told Sky Sports.

"We played well in that second-half against a well-rested team.

"First-half we started okay but forgot to shoot on the goal. But what we did in the end was brilliant.

"I feel sorry for Palace but I have just seen the replay [of the penalty decision] in the dressing room and it was a clear penalty. If there was no contact, Benteke would have been in a great position to shoot.

"[After James Milner's red card] we changed to 3-4-2. That's what we tried, a little bit risky. Dejan Lovren had to be the right back and centre half. You can try but the rest is passion. For defence you always need more passion than formation.

"We brought on Kolo Toure to save the result at the end but you take what you can get. We had moments to score but now everything is OK. Football is like this. You make a plan at the end but the lads did great. This is the third league win in a row, I can't believe how it feels, really good, a big moment for us.

"[Christian Benteke's] was a perfect change, he really worked hard.

"His first touch was a big chance and then it was his penalty. He made the move and forced the situation. It was a clear penalty and then he was pretty cool with the penalty. Football is a lot of things and sometimes it's all about passion.

"What I saw today from my players, they defended with all they had and that's good to see."
