Liverpool boss is worried about their defense despite their 4-0 victory.
4-0 victory againstSouthampton
was not enough for their boss
as he was concerned about their defensive performance insisting thatAlisson’s
saves were the only reason behind the Reds’ clean sheet in that clash.
"I was not happy with the chances we conceded today, to be honest,"
said Klopp in his post-game news conference
"I have no problem that Ali has to make saves in a football game but these saves were too spectacular. One-on-one with the goalie should not happen twice in a game, for sure not.
"We have to really work on that. We have to be as stable, serious, ruthless defensively as somehow possible. That gives us then the platform to play football and then we can create and then we can score.
"It will not be forever like this that we score two goals per game but it happened so far. So, good. But if we win a game 1-0 then I’m happy as well."
It was Liverpool’s 17th match in a row that Klopp’s men scored two or more goals, and this was impressive to the high-profile German manager who insisted that
is an exceptional player that deserves to be acknowledged.
"A good subject to talk about,"
"Diogo: exceptional player, exceptional boy. It was for us two years ago, one-and-a-half years ago, a perfect signing because he has everything that a Liverpool player in this squad needs.
"He has the technical skills, he has the physical skills and he is very smart and can learn all the tactical stuff pretty quick. On top of that, he can play all three positions; in a 4-2-3-1 he could play as the 10. So, it is very helpful.
"He has the speed, has the desire to finish situations off really good. I think his goalscoring record is pretty impressive, if I'm right. Unfortunately, he had a big injury last year and that is then never helpful. But he is back, thank God, and fits really well in this team. I'm really happy for him."
