Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool deserved this!


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp claims his sides 3-1 win over Everton in the Merseyside derby was “well deserved.”

Liverpool took the local bragging rights as goals from Mane, Coutinho, and Origi, were enough to run out 3-1 winners.

Liverpool manager Klopp feels that the result was well deserved, saying:

“The boys did everything they could to show the power of Anfield, I think it was well deserved,” said Klopp, who is the first Liverpool manager to win his first three league derbies.

“We played good football and we coped well. They tried to play the system which they played against Man City, when they won 4-0, that’s the first sign of respect.

“We had to defend at the end and our organisation was not that good, but we defended with passion and could have had one or two more clear counter attacks, but all good.

“Under the circumstances it was a really good game and we did the job we had to do.”

Klopp also commented on an incident before half-time when Ross Barkley was shown a yellow card for a high tackle on Dejan Lovren.

Everton boss Koeman said the Liverpool benches reaction to Barkley not being shown a red card was “crazy.”

“I don’t like creating stories.” Said Klopp.

“Our responsibility is to cool things down as much as possible. It’s not easy during the game so we shout at each other and all that stuff, but after the game it’s done.

“If you saw two harsh challenges then say it, if not don’t use me to say it. The ref decided in different situations again.”
