Watch Jurgen Klopp‘s post match press conference after Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-1 at Anfield in the League Cup.

The Reds progressed to the quarter finals thanks to two goals from Daniel Sturridge, with Klopp pleased with his side’s performance after making 11 changes.

“[The penalty] made it a little bit close, that was the only difficult thing,” said Klopp.

“We could have scored three, four, five times [but] we don’t live in dream land. We go to quarter finals.”

On Sturridge, Klopp said: “That’s his talent. His strength. He’s a finisher, a really good striker, no doubt about this.”

On his strike partner, Divock Origi, Klopp said: “Origi didn’t score tonight but played pretty well. Danny Ings didn’t score but played well [too].”

On playing youngsters, Klopp added: A few more to come, a little younger than the boys who made debut tonight. Good news for Liverpool.

On midfielder Kevin Stewart, the boss praised: “Very good, very important. Best challenger in the squad, one-on-one situations. Good footballer as well. Good game.”

Finally on his striker options, Klopp said: “We cannot play with 4 strikers, if you have an idea how we can do this, plus defending, come to me, tell me!”
