Klopp revels in late Forest victory

Klopp revels in late Forest victory

Liverpool boss hails his team's never-ending desire to win, after seeing Darwin Nunez score a 99th minute winner to secure the Red's fourth victory in eleven days.

Jurgen Klopp is a very happy man at the moment.  Having watched his injury-ravaged side win a remarkable Carabao Cup Final against Chelsea last week, and overcome Southampton with five teenagers in the starting eleven, Liverpool once again showed a 'never-day-die' attitude at Nottingham Forest earlier today, as Darwin Nunez's 99th-minute winner ensured Liverpool will end the weekend top of the table, regardless of what Manchester City and Arsenal do tomorrow and Monday.

Speaking after today's game, Klopp could not hide his pride in his player's attitude and desire to win.  LFC - Back On Our Perch takes a look at the key points from Klopp's post-match press conference.

When asked how important today's late goal could be, 

"We will see that. It was, it is so important the goal which gives you three points. It's always super-decisive and, especially for him, super-deserved. People singing that song more often, it's the best way to calm it immediately down, but they can sing it if Darwin responds like he did today. Before that he had really good moments. I think it was him after a set-piece, if I'm right, [where it was a] sensational save of the goalie. It was his chance as well. He was really immediately in the game, in a difficult game for us obviously."

On the ball being given back to Liverpool after the head injury, which led to Liverpool's goal,

"It happened exactly the same in the first half, didn't it? It was exactly the same, just the other way around, right? What would you say about that? I expected it exactly to happen like that because it happened in the first half like that. If it wouldn't have happened in the first half, I would have asked a question as well. But I would now assume that's the rule. I don't know to be 100 per cent sure because it happened twice and twice it got handled exactly the same. So, I don't really see the reason for the discussions because that's it and I don't know how many passes we had to play to arrive there and score the goal. But I understand 100 per cent the excitement and the anger and stuff like this of Nottingham, of course. They fight for everything and I understand that, but I think with the particular situation where it was twice the same then I would say that's consistent."

On the satisfaction of scoring late goals,

"Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. Four games in 11 days, come on. Five in 15. It's really tough. It's tough anyway, but with our squad situation, it's super tough. How the boys fought through that is really special. That we don't come here today and just play them out of the stadium and they don't find the exit anymore and stuff like this, that was clear. The fourth game was the toughest. It was really an unbelievable effort. The boys put in a proper, proper shift. We had to fight through this and the boys did it and if it's 0-0, it's 0-0. That doesn't change the game, that doesn't change the effort, but the goal obviously changed the result, the points, and these kinds of things."

"For us, it's super-important today and I'm really happy with that. So, now we have a few days longer until the next game. We need that to recharge and then we can train properly as well, which is helpful. The last 11 days we couldn't train at all, we just recovered and played again. That's the situation. Super-special. If you asked me 12 days ago if it was possible to win all four, I would have said no. But the boys made it happen."
