Jurgen Klopp on victory over Bournemouth, explains formation changes


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for his players after victory against Bournemouth on Sunday.

The German started with an experimental side at Dean Court after the mid-week win in the Europa League against Borussia Dortmund.

And the youngsters didn't disappointed as the Reds continue their quest to finish in the Top Four.

"I am really, really pleased for the boys and how they played today," Klopp said.

"Daniel [Sturridge] was absolutely brilliant. He was absolutely right in the decisive moments, like in the last few games because he has been involved in nearly all the goals we've scored in the last few weeks.

"After a beautiful pass from Ibe, he back-heeled and Roberto reacted well. The second goal was after a set piece and was really good.

"We had a lot of moments where we could have scored more, but we didn't, so it was still a little bit exciting. It was close at the end when they scored the goal, but it was a really deserved win.

"[The changes?] I am responsible for this line-up.

"Now it is easy to say, but I told the boys you can play football because if it doesn't work, they can blame me and not you. We really tried to enjoy the game and that's what they did.

"I think it was the first Premier League starts for Connor Randall, Brad Smith and Ojo. I think all three played well and it's really nice what they did.

"Jordon Ibe [has had] not the most easy time and I have heard something that he has some problems with me or something – absolutely not.

"Only a few young players come up and sometimes you're in the squad and sometimes you're not. He is still a brilliant, big, big talent and good for English football He did well today.

"Both wingers [were] young, the centre-backs experienced and the goalkeeper young. I was not surprised, but it was better than I thought it would be."
