While discussing the aspects of the game that most delighted him, Klopp highlighted the following:

I don’t know. What pleased me most? The moment of the game, the best one I enjoyed the most, was the 92nd minute. I think it was already five or six-one, we lose the ball and four players chase the poor, poor player from Leeds down in that moment. I think that’s the basis for the whole game because that gave us stability. It was, from a counter-pressing point of view, definitely the best game we played this season. In possession probably as well.”

After giving up 11 goals in their past two home games, Leeds currently appears to be in serious relegation danger. Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool side will now aim to move up to the top six in their remaining games.
