Klopp not 100% happy with Liverpool's management of second half

Post-match quotes from Jurgen Klopp are always peaches and today promised to be no different after Liverpool came close to letting the away side back in in the second half.

The Reds largely dominated the first half, scoring a controversial goal, but the disallowed goal for Wolves gave them a sniff. Something which they latched onto in the second half.

So it's no surprise to hear that the boss wasn't 100% happy with how the second half panned out. He said: "We had moments. We had these passing options, that’s what we were asking for constantly, but in football there is no chance to recover in a game if you don’t keep the ball.

"You cannot recover while the other team has the ball, so you have to do it in possession but that’s not the calm thing – it is a very lively thing, just not with the highest intensity. It is just smart, you play against their movement, you play in half-spaces.

"Naby and Millie helped immediately, you could see that. My God, Adam Lallana and Gini what they played today effort-wise, miles-wise, was really great, but then fresh players there in the half-space helped obviously.

"Then we caused them problems again but didn’t finish them off, it was not a game for two or three goals for us tonight, so we had to fight until the end. As I said, no problem with that."
