Sparta Prague vs Liverpool post-match comments

LFC - Back On Our Perch rounds up the best post-match comments as Liverpool thrash Sparta Prague to take control of their Europa League Last 16 tie.

Jurgen Klopp and his players were very satisfied with their night's work, as the Reds opened up a commanding 5 - 1 lead over Sparta Prague in their Europa League Last 16 tie. The only negative on the night was the injury to Ibrahima Konate, which may rule him out of the vital clash against Manchester City at the weekend.

LFC  - Back On Our Perch has the best post-match quotes below:

Jurgen Klopp, speaking about Darwin Nunez to the BBC,

"He had absolutely more than an OK first season but he had to adapt, that's done, and he is settled in the middle of the team.  He loves to play for this team together with these boys and has quality coming out of his ears, to be honest."

"Is he at his absolute peak in general? Not now for us. But can he develop? Yes. Is he a threat all the time? Yes."

Jurgen Klopp on the injury to Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate, 

"Ibou said when he passed me in that moment, 'I thought if I do another sprint then it could be bad'. So he said he should be fine, but we don't know."

"Joey is fine, we took him off, he played a lot of games so that was more rotation, precaution."

Jurgen Klopp, speaking to, on his desire to win the Europa League, 

"Probably the question is, 'How big is the desire to win a European trophy?' And yeah, it would be cool, but nothing to do with that [his departure]. Last year when I stayed, I wanted to win something but it was just not possible, so yeah, nobody has to worry about that. We try really hard like you could see tonight, my team fought as well. It was not like we were sloppy in the way like we thought, 'Yeah, we can do this [playing] at 80 per cent.' Not at all. We made mistakes, that's human, but we fought really hard and I saw the dressing room afterwards and the boys felt the intensity of the game and were happy about the result. So, we keep trying."

Jurgen Klopp on whether the scoreline was harsh on Sparta,

"Yeah. So, the result is much better than the performance, that's true. Sparta played a good game; Sparta took some risks in our possession, they [were] hiding wingers slightly [and] our protection was not good, so they could create these counter-attacks. We lost a few unnecessary balls, which is then difficult to protect, but in other moments we should have done better.

We adapted during the game and could again actually tell the boys in half-time how we should do it, but then we conceded a goal immediately. But after that it was then not that we controlled it much better and Sparta had chances but I think, I am not 100 percent sure, but I think two of the big chances they had looked for me offside and Caoimh [Kelleher] made a save and we never saw the flag then. Nobody watched these situations back but that's fine."

Liverpool now has the small matter of Manchester City coming to Anfield at the weekend, in a game that will go a long way to deciding the Premier League title Race.  LFC - Back On Our Perch will have all the pre-match information you need ahead of the biggest game of the season!
