Jurgen Klopp happy with Liverpool’s win over Wolves
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp welcomes his side’s passion in their FA cup win over Wolves
Klopp made 8 changes to the side that lost to Brighton over the weekend in the Premier League. This change saw youngster Bajcetic start ahead of Fabinho in midfield.
He told BBC Sport: “It feels like ages ago we had a feeling of winning and playing well. We had to fight hard at the end, which we controlled for long periods. It is great and the reaction we wanted to see.”
Klopp vowed he would not quit after the defeat to Brighton and urged his players to go “back to basics”.
The German was impressed with the way they responded to a painful loss last weekend.
“From the passion we showed, yes,” he said. “It is my job to help the boys and find the formation where they feel good from the start. Stefan Bajcetic and the whole midfield was really compact, so it was difficult for Wolves to find the key players like Joao Moutinho. I liked the game a lot.”
Elliott was named man of the match, but Klopp felt several of his players were candidates for the award.
He added: “It was good from Harvey Elliott, especially after an early knock to the ankle. He fought through, and the goal was exceptional.
“I had a few man of the match performances today. We played a really good first half, had good periods in the second, and in the end it was just passion to block the shots. A cup game, great.”
