Klopp was understandably pleased with the win and performance, saying: “Today we played a really good game, almost perfect, then you lose Sadio Mane.
“After first few minutes, we controlled the game, the spaces between the lines, brought Phil in between the lines.”
On Mane’s injury, the manager said: “It doesn’t look ready for Wednesday. Hopefully it’s not too serious. We will see.
Asked what the injury is, Klopp said: “I don’t know exactly, don’t want to speculate. Doesn’t look like it’s just a knock. It didn’t look like he felt comfortable.”
The win leaves Liverpool third in the table, seven points ahead of Man United – who have three games in hand though.
On that top four race, Klopp said: “My boys showed again that we are ready to fight for everything. Hopefully we can stay in this optimistic moment.”
