Klopp: "I would have paid double for Alisson"


Klopp: "I would have paid double for Alisson"

Jurgen Klopp's side booked their place in the last 16 with a tense 1-0 win over Napoli at Anfield on Tuesday (Dec 11).

It meant it was down to Alisson to save their necks with his injury-time save to keep out Arkadiusz Milik and send his team to the knockout stages. "I think that's a sign of a good team", he said.

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum admits goalkeeper Alisson's crucial match-winning saves have given them a new level of confidence for their Premier League title push. It was life-saving tonight. How cool and calm he was with the ball helps us a lot in our build-up situations.

"He did it...incredible, unbelievable. This game was just wonderful, outstanding, unbelievable, the boys left their whole heart on the pitch", he added. That was, of course, a lifesaver.

"The boys played their whole hearts on the pitch - I'm not sure it's right saying".

Tottenham Hotspur battled back from a goal down in Camp Nou to draw 1-1, courtesy of a late Lucas Moura goal against already-group-winners-to-no-surprise Barcelona, and claim the point they needed to advance from Group B by an agonizingly thin margin. Our offensive defending, our offensive pressing was some of the best I've ever saw.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah scores against Napoli

'Against Napoli also it was hard to stop that ball but he managed to stop it and we are happy so of course it gives confidence.

He becomes emotional, savouring the moment, before the man next to him leans over and begins talking in his ear after they had embraced.

Mohamed Salah's duel with Napoli center-back Kalidou Koulibaly was tipped to be one of the most interesting match-ups of the night and the battle stayed true to its billing as the pair faced off several times during the match.

Trent Alexander-Arnold hobbled off in the 90th minute with an apparent foot issue, while James Milner was suffering from cramps. "Didn't know the camera got us thanks for posting".

"Millie had cramps - I hope it was only cramp".

Van Dijk did play the ball first, but his follow through took out the Belgian global and could easily have been punished with a red card by Slovenian referee Damir Skomina.
