Building on Wednesday night’s emphatic 3-0 win over Villarreal in the Europa League semi-finals, this latest triumph saw Klopp’s much-changed unit produce a solid all-round performance.
With just two games until the end of the league campaign, Liverpool will hope to continue this run of form and secure a top-six finish, providing supporters and Klopp himself plenty of cause for optimism.
On the whole, there was a sense of contentment, despite a relatively drab affair on Merseyside…
Solid game. Took care of business.#LFC

“Meaningless match and meaningless result, but I guess it’s still better to be on the winning side than not…”

“Solid win for a much-changed Reds side to avenge the Vicarage Road debacle in December.”

Bit dull, but a great result for #LFC for a number of factors. More experience for Ojo and Co., a nice clean sheet and rest for key names.

“Brannagan seems like a tasty prospect from what we see, looks to be more PL quality than Chirivella.”

The players who have it, stand head and shoulders above the rest. Brannagan is one, who has it in spades, with composure and control also.

Brannagan looks a real talent. Looked so bright since coming on.

Brannagan is the best academy player. Huge potential.

But there was still an unavoidable sense that supporters have one eye on the Europa League final…
