"They got a result, the stadium wasn't here to see sensational football, they got the result and so they are happy".

Yes, it's shocking I know, but after 154 days of football, a Liverpool team managed by Jürgen Klopp has lost a game and the reaction has been well.slightly over the top. "I don't want to have this situation and that is why I took him off", Klopp added.
