"I'm delighted with that, the Premier League is the last one and sooner or later it will happen". I see teams rolling them over and they are not being made to work hard for it at all, that's the worry. If I could describe [how I felt when Liverpool scored] I could control it and I probably wouldn't run on the pitch. I didn't want to run to Ali (goalkeeper Alisson), I couldn't stop obviously. "Not cool, but it happened". It can be better, like it always can be, but he was calm on the ball and it was a really good performance'. "Our high pressure was outstanding, our counter-pressing was really at [the] highest level. There are a lot of emotions in those moments".

"[We] tried to control the game, which is hard because they controlled the spaces really well".

The Brazilian global has not hit the heights that he did throughout the course of last season, prompting concerns over his apparent lack of productivity at the moment. Since then, the 27-year-old struggled to make an impression at the World Cup as Brazil preferred the ineffective Gabriel Jesus to lead the line in Russian Federation and the new Premier League season has done little to lift Firmino's spirits.

"I know when I did it I was not happy to have done that, so I can understand (Everton manager) Marco Silva, (then Southampton boss Mauricio) Pellegrino when it happens".

"We had our moments".

There's no doubt that the Salah, Firmino, Mané axis is still a very potent threat - but there's also no hiding that they are not quite at the level of the second half of last season. It's a free world and we can judge things however.

With the ball looking as if it might hit the crossbar, the England man pushed the ball upwards and presented Divock Origi with a simple headed finish into an open net to seal a 1-0 win.

"Of course, it was a bit lucky".

Celebrations such as this one from Klopp are great for the game, regardless of the fact that the losing team will never enjoy them as much as everyone else. I don't think anyone thought it was massively wrong.
