Liverpool coach, Juerg Klopp, expressed his great happiness with his team’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur, at the top match of the English Premier League’s 13th round.
“We played a good game against the counterattack monster, and our possession of the ball shows that we played very well, yes, they scored a goal and they had two chances, and apart from that, we dominated the match,” Klopp said in comments after the match. Three points are badly deserved, and I’m happy. “
He added: “For me, Tottenham’s goal is offside. They saw the shot 20 times, but when I saw it, I found it offside. There is no one to blame, and the best way to defend against Tottenham is to keep the ball all the time.”
He continued: “It was a very good match, and therefore I am happy for us to score this goal. We had 70% possession of the ball against a great team. For Bobby (Firmino), what a header, I am very happy for him, and for the wonderful match he presented and his moves, where contributed to opening all loopholes.”
He concluded by commenting on his conversation with Jose Mourinho: “There is nothing serious. He tells you what he said, and I do not need to repeat it, no argument.”
It is noteworthy that Mourinho told Klopp after the match that the best team lost, which was not agreed to by the German coach.
