Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool defended ‘hectically’ in Porto win

    Jurgen Klopp has said that his Liverpool side were not as calm at the back as they could have been in their 2-0 win over Porto, but put this down to rotation and praised his side’s desire to win.

    The Reds secured top spot in Group B on matchday four while Porto travelled to Anfield knowing a win would boost their chances of also reaching the knockout stages.

    The away side dominated the first half and were unlucky not to take the lead, with Thiago Alcantara and Mohamed Salah eventually grabbing Liverpool’s goals after the break to secure the three points.

    Speaking with BT Sport post-game, Klopp admitted his makeshift backline of Neco Williams, Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip and Kostas Tsimikas could have defended better, but was pleased with the efforts the team put in as a whole.

    “It was good, we could have done better. We could have been more calm in the first half especially, in goal scoring situations we were a bit hectic, which is not unusual when you put a team together which has not played together all the time,” he said.
