Why Jurgen Klopp is tempted to play 11 defenders against Watford

Why Jurgen Klopp is tempted to play 11 defenders against Watford

"In similar games a year ago, we were not that convincing".

The Egypt global has defied all odds after initial scepticism due to his underwhelming stint with Chelsea before leaving for Serie A - as he maintained his incredible form after a record-breaking debut season. For most of the game the visitors lacked spark but they illuminated proceedings with a brilliant move in the 67th minute that culminated in Mo Salah opening the scoring.

The Liverpool striker was hauled down and injured by Ramos during the Champions League final last season and it is an issue which won't die, especially amongst the fans of the Anfield club.

The Reds are preparing to take on PSG for their crucial Champions League tie in Group C on Wednesday evening and Klopp will be desperate to field his first-choice centre-back partnership in the French capital.

"Obviously, I don't agree with that".

Trent Alexander-Arnold's stunning free-kick and Roberto Firmino's tap-in added to the score for the Reds. It wasn't that clear we controlled the game. Controlling it and staying in that mode, being positive, that's new for us. We lost here in my first season so to win here is really special. "It was exactly how it had to be in our situation". The team will look to pull a few points from the next few matches but a hard schedule is on the horizon with games against Leicester City, Manchester City and Everton after this one.

"In a few moments, the tempo change could have been a bit more obvious but even then, we had our chances". And the third goal was one of the best counter-attacks I ever saw - it was just nice. I don't know why people say that, but it's the world of media, someone in Egypt writes it and I get confronted with it.

"They've been really good", he said. You have to constantly close down a player or space.

"We tried to do our best but after scoring the first goal, with more spaces, they are very unsafe".

"He obviously didn't have as much oxygen anymore and it was only a little touch, but I would have given the second yellow as well".

After the break Watford had strong claims for a penalty: Will Hughes went down on the edge of the box after a challenge by Andrew Robertson, but both referee and linesman stood still.
