Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp thinks that the club still has a very long way to go. Liverpool registered their third win of the Premier League by defeating Brighton and Hove Albion. Mohamed Salah scored the solitary goal of the match in the 22nd minute. The Reds are now at the top of the table above Manchester City. They are also yet to concede a single goal. This is the first time since 2013 that Liverpool have won their first three Premier League games.
Nevertheless, Klopp believes that the club has a lot of work to do. He said, “Nine points after three games, I never heard anything negative about that. We didn’t concede a goal, nothing negative about that. If you watched the games – we knew before the game but now a few more people know – we have a lot more to do.
First half was a good mindset, really patient in the right moment, and we scored the goal and could have scored more and I don’t think they had a chance in the first half. Then there was half-time and we didn’t do exactly the same, the boys changed a little bit and it was not the best idea.
We didn’t show the same patience and it was a more open game and there was absolutely no need for that. The last 10 minutes they [Brighton] had their moments as we started passing through an area where they was no space. They had their chances and Alisson had to make a big save; nice, good for us.
We won the game very deservedly. One-nil is not a result we’ve had very often since I was in but I am very happy because it was the best we could get today.”
Liverpool next face Leicester City next Saturday. The Foxes came from behind to defeat Southampton thanks to a late winner by Harry Maguire.
