Jurgen Klopp TEAMtalk

Jurgen Klopp questioned Roy Keane’s analysis of his side’s impressive 3-1 win over Arsenal at Anfield on Monday night.

Diogo Jota scored his first Reds goal as Klopp’s men came from behind to record their third successive Premier League win since the start of the new season.

Substitute Jota struck late on after goals from Sadio Mane and Andy Robertson had cancelled out Alexandre Lacazette’s opener for the visitors.

After the game pundit Keane claimed that Liverpool had to deal with some ‘sloppy moments’, a comment Klopp overheard while he was waiting to speak to Sky Sports.

The Anfield chief was straight on the defensive, saying: “Did I hear right Mr Keane said we had a sloppy performance, did he say that? Did he say that is was sloppy? I want to hear it, that is an incredible description of this game.

“Nothing, absolutely nothing was sloppy. Dominant against a team in form and be careful as hell that we did not get caught on the counter-attack.

“Alisson had to make one save, they had two chances in behind. But apart from that the football we played was exceptional tonight. This game tonight there is nothing bad to say, it was the opposite of sloppy.

So many big Liverpool moments

“We had so many big moments and I don’t dream we finish off each situation, we were 1-0 down but we won it and it was completely deserves. could we score more goals? Yes. Could they score? Yes. We played constantly a high line.

“How can you defend Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with not having a high line? We punished them from time to time, did not punish them but killed a little of their match plan. They stuck to it but we did it again and again.

“We want to win the ball as high as we can that is why I was not frustrated or disappointed. The games can go either way and if they score goals it looked slightly different. It is about how you play, how you create and early I the season, with this performance, it s absolutely wow.”
