Jurgen Klopp critical of Liverpool's first-half performance against Swansea City


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was delighted with this afternoon's win against Swansea City but says his players should have done better in the first 45 minutes.

The Reds came from behind to battle past Francesco Guidolin's side and move up to second in the table.

They host Manchester United when the domestic league resumes after the international break.

"I thought we could have done better in the first half," Klopp is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"Our body language was not good, we were static and it was easy to defend against us. We are not as good as we should have been.

"You have to show why we are here. We showed a reaction, were more organised, clear in all situations and we deserved to win. Of course I am happy we have had two or three brilliant games in a row.

"If Milner is our top scorer at end of the season with penalties, I have no problem with it. All is good. The performance was not perfect but it was good enough."
