WATCH: Klopp praises players after comeback win

Jurgen Klopp praised the performance of his Liverpool players after they rallied to come from behind to beat Brighton 2-1.

The Reds fell behind after just two minutes when Danny Welbeck fired in to give Roberto De Zerbi’s side the lead, but goals in either from Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah secured the win for Klopp’s side.

Victory for Liverpool saw them return to the top of the Premier League and Klopp was ecstatic with the way his side conducted themselves to come from behind and win the match:

“We dominated in a lot of moments in a way we never have before against Brighton,” Klopp said. “We played good football and caused problems.

“We cannot calm them down for whole 90 minutes, that’s clear. But in so many moments we did really well after a super tricky start. We were not in a rush in our build up, but in our finishing were in a rush.

“We had a lot of moments, but not with real quality. I told the boys at half-time, we have to do a couple of things: high press was really good, and we had to play in similar spaces, but we had to calm down.

“Thankfully, we did that maybe one or two times. In the end I’m really happy with the way we played today. It’s all about reacting and if I’ve learnt something this year it’s that we can do these things [come from behind].”
