Jurgen Klopp has played down claims of a weak defence by simply saying “Who needs clean sheets when you get three points?”
Liverpool have gotten off to an impressive start to the season are currently the highest scorers in the Premier League. However, questions have been raised about the strength of the Reds defence.
Despite this, Jurgen Klopp doesn’t seem worried in the slightest and preferred to talk about the Anfield atmosphere when posed the question about his team’s lack of clean sheets.
“Who needs clean sheets when you get three points?” said Klopp following his side’s 2-1 victory over West Brom.
“The atmosphere was outstanding, it was Anfield at its best. I’ve been here a little more than a year, but that was the best performance of the crowd in a non-European game”.
He added: “Yes, in dreamland then you win always 4-0, 5-0 and the crowd can go earlier and people can go and do something more serious.
“But this game tonight created one of the best atmospheres because it was exciting towards the end. We created the chances and we didn’t use the chances. In this moment it is better we won 2-1 than 3-0 or 4-0, but all good”.
Should Klopp be worried about his defence?
