Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp was facilitated after the hard-fought 2: 0 (0: 0) of his team against FC Everton. “Thank God, the game has two halves,” said the 54-year-old after the derby victory in the “BBC” interview.
“We did not play well in the first half.” After the break, his eleven increased sharply. “The gates were wonderful,” smiled Klopp.
The fact that the relegate FC Everton would make his Reds difficult, the Liverpool coach was already clear. “We expect that, but we did not react well,” he said. “If someone thinks we’re flying through these games, I can only apologize, that will not happen. If we produce such an atmosphere as today, then it will be 95 minutes hard against us.”
Five games before the end of the season Liverpool has a point behind defending champions and leaders Manchester City. The projection on Everton, which occupies a relegation place, is a total of 50 points. Nevertheless, Klopp is convinced that the Toffees trained by Frank Lampard remain in the Premier League. “I think with such a performance like today you can get the points you need.”
