Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was delighted with his side’s pressing and counter-pressing in Wednesday’s 3-0 win over Manchester City.
For Liverpool the win was revenge for Sunday’s Capital One Cup defeat at Wembley to the same opposition.
It kept alive their interest in the league as fourth place remains tantalisingly within their reach still if they can maintain performances of the level which saw goals from Adam Lallana, James Milner and Roberto Firmino end the contest with an hour gone.
Manager Jurgen Klopp said: “The boys did brilliantly. They were very angry in a positive way. The pressing situation was brilliant, the counter-pressing was good and then we had to score goals and we did.”
“Being tired in this moment of the season is nothing to talk about because everybody could be, it was more about the mental thing.
“We lost on Sunday. We had to show a reaction. The most important moment of the season is now.
“We have to take what we can get. We have to stay angry, to strike back in each game.
“We have no points to waste in our time. Everything can happen.”
