Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has hailed his players for defending at a high level for 99 minutes as they beat Manchester City 1-0 on Sunday.
Mohammed Salah scored the only goal of the match in the second half.
Klopp, speaking to Sky Sports, spoke about how the Reds limited the Premier League champions from playing their usual style.
He said: “Result, perfect. Performance, really, really good, in an incredibly intense game.
“We defended at an incredibly high level for 99 minutes almost. They had their moments but especially in the box we did extremely well.
“This was obviously big for us today. We showed up today and that is all we wanted to do.
“City didn’t have these counter attack situations, we had them three times. The situation around the goal is just sensational awareness from Alisson and outstanding from Mo. He might miss one but he will not miss two in a similar situation.
“Goals decide the game but there were so many good football moments against what I would say is the best football team isn’t the world.”
