What a game last night – so hard to digest at time the fluidity of Liverpool’s attacking. Some real stand out moments.
- Firmino shining as the focal point
- Coutinho is pure magic when in the attacking third
- Can repaying faith with another superb performance
- Firmino popping up as a centre back to get the ball
What were the reactions from last night’s win?
“We created unbelievable chances for scoring more than two. But it was exciting until the last second. “
On his team’s performance;
“I am pleased with the performance, the result, no one injured, it was a good game for our side. It is West Brom, they don’t lose by much, nothing will change their style of play”
“We came to win this game, the boys did well, I am happy this kind of football is not a guarantee. In other games we will be more under pressure, the work never stops or ends we have to carry on, an early moment in the season but all good.”
On the atmosphere at Anfield;
“The atmosphere was outstanding, it was Anfield at its best. I was really, really happy with how the crowd respected West Brom.”
On West Brom’s goal, which prevented them going top;
“Who needs clean sheets when you get three points? The lads did outstanding and I’m really pleased with the performance.”
“When they scored, I felt not so good, it was clear, our plan was to avoid the set-piece. It is so difficult, they are really role models for set-pieces.”
Is Tony Pulis now backing Liverpool for the Premier League title?
“It was very difficult to defend against Liverpool’s front five.”
“They’re a good side, their front five are as good as anything in the league.”
Highlighting the last of European games;
“They’ve got a clear run at the title.”
Set pieces being an issue again;
“We were disappointed conceding from a set piece as we had worked on that. We had handled it well until the goal. From that point on, they lumped the ball forward to put pressure on us, we coped with it well to see the game out.”
“First-half we were very good with the ball, it got a bit nervy after their goal. We need to build on that and stop the goal from the set piece.”
Talk of title race, a very diplomatic answer from the captain.
“It is too early for that talk, we have to concentrate on each game, it is a bonus teams around us dropped points but the main aim for us is to get three points.”
