Liverpool boss Klopp on victory at Wolves: A big one

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was delighted with their 2-1 win at Wolves.

Raul Jimenez had canceled Jordan Henderson's opener for Liverpool before Roberto Firmino's late winner.

Klopp later beamed: "It was a big one. Nuno [Espirito Santo] is doing really well. They are really different to a lot of other teams because they use the width of the pitch. We did well but if you close Adama Traore outside, he goes inside, so then you have to deal with the cross and deal with Raul Jimenez!

"They scored that goal and then it's another wild 10 minutes. We got control back a little bit after then which is important. The chances we had were incredible. We were at least four or five times in a one-on-one with the goalkeeper so if we score then it is gameover but it wasn't so 1-1.

"Moments can help us or the genius moment of Bobby Firmino can help us. We didn't panic but we weren't completely in the mood I wanted us to be in when we went 1-0 up. The development of the game has influence on each individual on the pitch. One sees a chance, sees the space, but others aren't in the same mindset. That was the story of the game.

"So much to improve for us but knowing if we defend really well... Everybody worked their socks off. I'm so proud of the boys. It's incredible.

"It's over when it's over, not before. So why should we really think about it? Let's carry on. It's difficult enough. We have to find solutions for the different games then we will see."
