Jurgen Klopp praises five Liverpool players and sends message over Anfield fans
After beating Wolves, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp comments on the atmosphere at Anfield and the standout players.
Following the disallowance of a Darwin Nunez goal due to a contentious VAR decision, goals from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah in the second half were enough for the Reds to climb up to sixth in the rankings, six points behind fourth-placed Spurs with a game in hand.
While Liverpool’s performance was not spectacular, a raucous Anfield crowd helped the Reds get the three points.
And, with Van Dijk impressing at center-back alongside the returning Ibrahima Konate, and Fabinho grabbing the eye in midfield after being heavily criticized this season, Klopp expressed his delight at his team’s triumph after the final whistle.
“It’s obviously a really good one in a tough game for defenders. I thought we performed tonight, we played a really good game in general.
“I really think the centre-halves and Fabinho together, how they covered that area, how they denied the counter-attacks, how they defended into midfield, which is very important against a team which plays with one striker, I thought they did really well. In possession, we looked pretty good in a lot of moments, with Harvey and Stefan in the half-spaces. It worked well.
“I think Anfield proved a point tonight again. It was super, super enjoyable. It felt like a proper unit, we all together. I love that and it’s what we need again on Sunday.”
