Watch Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reflect on his side’s 6-0 rout of bottom of the league Aston Villa in the Premier League.
Klopp was obviously happy with his side, and the returning Daniel Sturridge in particular, but showed lot of respect to Villa, saying: “It’s a good day for us, and a hard day for Aston Villa.”
On Sturridge – who scored after 15 minutes on his first league start under Klopp – the manager said: “We need the goals of Daniel, and he needs the goals – that’s clear.”
“It’s not a surprise he can score goals, but it’s a surprise how in-tune he is with the team. He’s a real striker.”
“We can only speak about this when he’s available. Today was brilliant, you saw he was not too happy when we took him off.”
“It made sense to take him out. It was okay, it was perfect for him. Hopefully he’s available for the next game too.”
Liverpool’s next two games are in the Europa League – away to Ausburg on Thursday, then at Anfield a week later – before a trip to Wembley to face Man City in the League Cup Final.
ASTON VILLA 0-6 LIVERPOOL
