England– Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was impressed with the ‘very mature’ performance his side put with Mohamed Salah goal the only differnce in the game at Brighton in the premier league.
How I said, the headline before the game was ‘be ready’. The headline after the game is ‘very mature’. he told the club website
“You saw the game and it’s obviously a big challenge for everybody to stay calm and to stay concentrated because each little situation can be a massive threat or counter-attack.
“And don’t make any fouls because Brighton are unbelievably strong around set-pieces; we don’t make harsh fouls but if you step too late – this kind of concentration level is difficult to keep, the boys did it.
“In the first half, we had four or five situations, which is absolutely enough usually, if you score in a situation like that – when we came into the box or won the ball back or pressed them and won the ball. If you can score in a situation like that, it’s all good.
“In the situations where we played around, that was OK as well, but in the moment when we chipped the ball and went for second balls, we had nobody for the second balls. We had runners but no guys for the second ball.
“The sixes and centre-halves were a bit too close together, we were a bit too wide, everybody offered the run in behind and nobody in between”.
