Maintaining their 100 percent record on Klopp’s 600th game as a manager, Liverpool made history by winning their first seven games of the season for the very first time.
This serves to underline their progress under Klopp, who spoke to reporters after the game on the importance of keeping their focus on the next game.
“It’s a surprise because of course you cannot expect it, but all performances we showed so far were at least good enough to win the games,” he said.
“All the different challenges with the different styles of the opponent, the boys were there.
“They were really in the situation and in the different games, so that’s good.
“But now the next one is coming on Wednesday and then coming again on Saturday and then again on the Wednesday.
“That’s now a really short week we have and then the period ends with a nice game against Man City!
“It will be tough, but for all of us, so that’s absolutely OK.”
And he explained why he substituted the excellent Xherdan Shaqiri at half-time, insisting that though he was clearly impressed, Klopp “wanted to control the game” in midfield.
