Jurgen Klopp has expressed his delight with Liverpool’s display against Bournemouth.

Liverpool marched closer to the title with the win against Bournemouth earlier. The Reds are now eleven points clear from the second-best Leicester City.

Jurgen Klopp, as reported by Sky Sports, heaped praise on his players after the match. The German highlighted that Liverpool did not spend time defending while admitting that it was a positive sign.

“It wasn’t easy, it was very difficult,” Klopp said.

“The boys made a lot of good decisions and that’s why it was a comfortable win. Maybe more than we would have expected before the game, but Bournemouth were in a difficult situation, losing two key players, and then you get a feeling that it’s not a Bournemouth day.

“But we scored wonderful goals, had other big chances and the result is most important. But the performance was really good as well, especially in the second half when we were really professional and assured.

“That’s what we have to be in the moment and it’s not about being constantly exciting, it’s about doing the right stuff. There were not a lot of difficult moments to defend, which is good and very important so nearly a perfect day.”
