According to Klopp, many people expected Liverpool to blow up again, but he expressed his joy at the fact that his players managed to win.
"A very good match for us against a good opponent," the German specialist told BT Sport.
"It was difficult. We only had two days between this match and the previous one against Leicester. We have a long flight ahead of us. We will return early in the morning and begin recovery. We can't regain our confidence after one match. It's good that we won. I know that many people hoped to fail again, but this time we won, "he added.
"I don't think my players were motivated by the people who expected us to die. We all know that we have been very good for the last two years, and this year we have problems. It is perfectly normal for criticism to begin. "The most important thing is that the boys did not slip, although many people expected just that," said Klopp.
