Klopp’s powerful comment on Mohamed Salah’s performance against West Ham in the league
Klopp said at the post-match press conference: “Salah was great in defense and was involved in everything. He was also great in attack, as everyone knows.”
He stressed: “The penalty we got was the result of a special performance from Darwin. Even if Salah didn’t get the penalty, he would have scored it.”
He continued: “A difficult but expected match. There were special moments in the first half but we couldn’t keep them completely out of our goal, but I think we played well. We lost a few goals but created a lot of counter-attacks.”
He added: “When West Ham scored I wasn’t surprised. It seemed like we let them do it because of the way they played after they took the lead.”
He continued: “Of course this goal could have been prevented, but the most important thing is that we stayed in the match – after the draw – and took control, gave them a big challenge, caused them problems and scored special goals. “
He continued: “Darwin’s goal was special and the third goal was from a set-piece, although West Ham are a strong team in that regard.” Alisson made good saves when we needed him.”
He added: “They’re good players and when they’re having a good day they glow, but even when they’re not it’s interesting to watch them develop in matches. We didn’t score first.” today, but we got the score and it honestly feels the same, but the reaction was very special again.”
The German continued: “Alistair and Szoboszlai remained fully concentrated until the end of the match. Matip made an important intervention against Antonio after a thrown ball. “Darwin and Luis Diaz also shone after a great performance on Thursday.”
He concluded by saying, “Darwin Nunes? He has made important steps in recent weeks. His goal today was very impressive, his attacking play was outstanding and his defensive play has improved a lot with help from Curtis and Szoboszlai. Darwin is very good.”
