Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp is extremely pleased with his team’s performance against Atalanta. Liverpool scored five past the Italian club as Diego Jota scored a hat-trick.
Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah too scored in the second half. Moreover Liverpool have won all of their group matches in the UCL till now.
Happy with the team effort: Jurgen Klopp
Everything I said [about Atalanta] last night and today before the game is the 100 per cent truth, it’s what I think. I’m long enough in the business to see when another team is playing good football and can cause each team in the world problems.
That didn’t change because of the game or the result tonight. We are good as well, we know that; we have to play good, we have to fulfil our potential. That’s what the boys did tonight. We defended Atalanta on an incredibly high level and played ourselves top football and scored the goals.
For tonight that was the decision, it was clear it makes sense for tonight, first of all to use the good shape Diogo is in. And because of the way Atalanta plays and defends, it made sense that the skillset of Diogo helps. But the world is sometimes a really bad place that in the moment when somebody is shining, we speak immediately about another player who played for us, it feels like, 500 games in a row. We would not be in the Champions League even if Bobby Firmino would not be with us.
