Jürgen Klopp Passed player-player and hugged him after the game. After not simple minutes, the color returned to his face. The coach concluded as usual in a creative way. “It was a tough time, this night is absolutely extraordinary. A top game, we deserved to win, it’s so hard to play against them in front of their organization on the one hand and the quality on the other. I loved the game. I don’t think we lack confidence, we don’t think about it at all “There is a great team here, but we are in a difficult situation also because of the injuries. In any case, we will play again soon.” He then recounted what Jose Mourinho whispered in his ear: “He said the better team lost.”
On the secret of magic in the last minutes: “It hasn’t happened too many times this season. I have no problem going back to scoring late goals if need be. I really think we deserved to win tonight (yesterday) even though Tottenham also had situations. But we are not lucky. It is impossible to keep players like “Harry Kane for 90 minutes without getting into the situation. We made a sensational performance. Maybe people will think it’s a bit like last season, maybe, but it’s been one of our best games in a long time.”
It’s no secret that Firmino is having a difficult season. The goal he scored yesterday was only his third of the season despite having already made 20 appearances in all competitions. Klopp said of the Brazilian: “I hope he never doubts himself. There is a lot of talk, are people surprised that he scores? He scores important goals for us. For us it is only important that the ball is in the net, we do not care who scores. He does a lot of things like creating situations and clearing areas. “I think the gate was really more important to us than to it.”
Captain Jordan Henderson: “It was a big fight, very tactical, we expected it. We played well, created situations but absorbed. I think our performance was outstanding. We kept believing and playing until the end. We concentrate on playing until the final whistle, not thinking about records, results or “Points that will be lost. In the previous round we did not win and this time we did.”
Is this the team’s best game this season: “I would say it’s one of our best performances this season. With the ball, without the ball, we put a lot of pressure, we won the fights, we ran non-stop. I feel in the clouds.” The captain complimented Williams: “I said before the game that he would excel – and it happened. He played wonderfully. I heard him talk all the time, it’s amazing for such a young player. It should also be noted Fabiano next to him, the defense and the whole team.”
The leap to the top: “We want to focus only on ourselves, I know we say that over and over and you may get bored. But we are happy to win. Crystal Palace immediately expect us to be a strong opponent who has achieved good results. Maybe Tottenham will be down now after the disappointing loss.”
“Firmino’s golden goal at the last minute sent Liverpool to the top at the expense of Tottenham who were a very stubborn opponent and recorded big misses,” the BBC reported. “Klopp raged and moved from side to side, raging before celebrating frantically with his players. After a bad game against Fulham, it was the perfect reaction and a return to their natural place – the top of the table.” “Firmino was the hero of Liverpool and freed it from the cables put up by Tottenham. The best team won, but it was not far from another finish,” the Daily Mail reported. “The incredible drama came just as the effort seemed to pay off for the Spurs and it scored a point at Anfield. Firmino’s shot, which escaped Toby Elderworld’s nails, brought Liverpool back to the top of the table at the expense of the title contender.
