Jurgen Klopp: At the end it was open, I think we deserved the draw


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the 1-1 draw at Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League is a fair result for his side.

It was the German's first time back in Dortmund after he left to join the Reds this season.

The two teams will meet again next week at Anfield with Liverpool favourites to reach the next round of the competition.

"I'm satisfied with lots of parts of the game," Klopp told reporters.

"Our organisation was good and we were brave with our plan. And around the 1-0 we were brilliant, to be honest, really good moments. We played direct football and showed what we are capable of.

"Then, of course, against a team like Dortmund with their quality, organisation and self-confidence, you cannot defend each pass. So you need to be patient in the midfield, you need to be ready to get frustrated when you can't avoid the pass.

"We had to fight with big passion and that's what we did.

"Their biggest chance in the first half was when they played a chip ball behind the line, [Marcel] Schmelzer with a cross and then Mama blocked the ball – that was really brilliant play. Usually they have more of these moments, so we did really well.

"We scored a wonderful goal, quick in mind, really cool. A nice pass from Alberto [Moreno], nice run by Milly and flick-on, and Divock scored like he played the whole game – brilliant. In the second half, a set-piece, and how it is in football that's a fault of all of us.

"I decided to have Adam Lallana in this position instead of Divock Origi, sorry for this. We could have avoided the cross, of course; then Mats Hummels scored the goal but we were still in the game. [For] our really big chances, Roman Weidenfeller did really well, a perfect performance.

"At the end it was open. I think we deserved the draw."
