Liverpool boss Klopp happy with 2-goal Firmino

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was pleased with Roberto Firmino's performance in victory over Swansea City.

Firmino scored twice in the 5-0 win.

Klopp said, "I am happy for all of the boys when they score but I couldn't say how many he has or how many he has - I don't care, to be honest, it's not in my interest. If we play like we play in the good moments then the boys will be in different situations and it'll be easy to score, like the second goal of Roberto tonight. Probably you could've scored this! No?! That's a sad story! OK, I could have scored in this situation!

"So that's what you have to do, you have to work for that and everybody could see Mo was not the happiest person in the stadium when we took him off, but at least I have to stay kind of reasonable or serious or whatever because there's a lot of games to come. They all will score goals. Sadio did not play tonight, but he will score if we play like this, if we bring the different players, in the different moments in the situation.

"Roberto, I appreciate always his effort and his performance, that he scores twice, I'm happy about that but I could not say how many goals he has scored so far in the season because I feel he is always involved, he is always in and around the really dangerous situations for the opponent. First half he helped left full-back to right full-back, he was everywhere. In the end he scored two goals, so that's nice."
