Klopp praises 'outstanding' Liverpool victory after rout against Arsenal


Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Unai Emery saluted Liverpool's attacking firepower, as his side were hammered into submission at Anfield.

With Tottenham losing 3-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the earlier kick-off in the day, Jurgen Klopp's side were aware victory would hand them a 9 point lead, with Man City in action on Sunday.

The match starts at 01:30 on 30 December 2018.

Manchester City's players have the full backing of boss Pep Guardiola, who said "we have the belief" ahead of their trip to Southampton.

"I'm not the smartest person in the world but I'm really not an idiot - not always, at least". The more important thing is he never shows it in any training sessions, he's a fantastic professional and trains really well when he can.

"What you all create and I get that, how can you not be positive about us?"

"Before the game we heard because it was on all the screens about the result of Tottenham", he said.

Federal police said the man's motive was unclear but there was no indication the incident was terror-related. They couldn't give further information about where he came from because he was not carrying an identity card.

"I didn't see a smile in any faces in the dressing room".

"When I saw him then celebrating with Bobby that was then like 'wow.' Just outstanding". "We are very happy with situation at the moment, we have to keep intensity high and continue in this way". "Everyone in the squad has been looking at, but in December we've knocked the games off one by one and we've now got a healthy lead". We have to run. He explained: "Could we have played better in the first half?"

After conceding the first goal of the game, the German congratulated the team on their response, saying: "The reaction [to going behind] was obviously brilliant, absolutely brilliant". The Egyptian global blasted home the resulting spot kick for 4-1 at the break.

"Oh, I was waiting for that question", he said.

"If they were going to upgrade anywhere, I think it could be maybe a [Nabil] Fekir-type player from Lyon. So far the gesture of the season".

Whereas other football leagues take a well-earned rest over the Christmas holidays, the matches come thick and fast in the Premier League in a frantic period which puts a strain on players' legs and can well determine the eventual champions.

"This is a hard moment for us, it was a bad experience for us".
