Jurgen Klopp was happy with

Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers

. Klopp thought that they needed the win after their “knock” against Real Madrid. The knock he refers to is their 5-2 loss against Real Madrid at Anfield were they went 2-0 up before capitulating and conceding five.

"We knew it would be a difficult game, we controlled the game in a lot of periods," Klopp told BBC Sport after the victory. 

"There were situations rather than chances, we got in a rush in these moments. We got our rhythm back in the second half, we just had to be solid defensively and keep making chances.

"In general we did defensively well tonight, Diogo [Jota] in the 10 was really important, the midfield was together, defensively we had a high line and won decisive challenges. Ali [Alisson] didn't have spectacular saves to make which was good.

"We had a knock against Real Madrid, we played a really good first half then we started the second really bad. We looked a lot more stable today, we have to carry that on."

Jurgen Klopp then talked about Darwin Nunez's opener which was ruled offside by VAR.

"For the boys on the pitch it was a clear goal, but you have to stay focused. We forced the first goal and the second was wonderful,"

Klopp said.
