Klopp: “There are a lot of things we can improve”


Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has praised his team’s 6-1 victory over Watford at Anfield, but insists there is still room for improvement.

A dominant attacking display has sent Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table. Sadio Mane scored a brace at Anfield while Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum all found the net.

Speaking to the media following the match, Klopp said: “I’m really happy actually. It was a good performance, absolutely, against a difficult opponent.”

“In the last few games they had three clean sheets and not lucky clean sheets.

“But we are still early in our development and there are a lot of things we can improve.

“Watford deserved the goal because they created a few chances and Loris was really busy, which in a game you win 6-1 is not really likely. So, a lot of things we can improve, but a lot of things worked really well today.”

Klopp has downplayed the pressure that comes with sitting on top of the table, maintaining that the season is still in its early days.

“If somebody thinks being one point ahead after 11 matchdays is a big sign for the rest of the season, I can’t help this person,” he said.

“The only thing you can do is to work and stay concentrated, because a lot of different things could happen in the next few weeks and months.

“When I came here, I asked for time, patience, belief and a lot of things. Now after 11 matchdays, everyone is asking for guarantees but they are not there. There are no guarantees.”

The Liverpool manager has credited his team’s ability to have 13 different goal scorers in 14 matches this season.

“It shows especially that they all know where the goal is, and try to score and do all these things,” he said.

“We played a really good match today and we had really good players on the bench, in a really good shape.”
