Klopp roared his side on throughout, but provided a more measured analysis in Anfield’s new press room, covering a variety of topics.
Klopp addressed this by saying “we really deserved the three points,” but stressed that “I’m not interested in setting standards until we have reached the final standard.”
“I’m responsible for our bad performances, they are responsible for our good performances. That’s quite an easy deal,” he explained.
“But I don’t like too much after a game where everybody could see that we were good that we celebrate it like something really special happened.
“That’s what I expect from us. What we did today, those are the things I expect.”
Though he is looking for his side to kick on towards Friday’s away clash with Chelsea, Klopp also discussed the importance of an emphatic performance in front of Anfield’s new Main Stand.
The German also hailed the quality throughout his squad, saying “Phil [Coutinho] didn’t start, Divock Origi didn’t come on, there were a few players injured, but it was still a good team [performance].”
It was an excellent display from the Reds, but Klopp will be hoping for more of the same in the future.
