After a run of four consecutive league defeats, Liverpool earned a hard fought victory over strugglers, Sheffield United. The result now leaves them two points off the top four and seemingly back on track.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Klopp gave his take on the win saying,"The plan was to keep going. They couldn't deal with us. They played an incredible game. It is clear that these games stay exciting. We should've scored three. Robbo could've had a hat-trick."

Liverpool dominated the first half, although their efforts were all thwarted by an inspired Aaron Ramsdale. Most notably, Roberto Firmino squandered an excellent opportunity to take the lead, smashing his shot against the goalkeeper's outstretched leg.

Liverpool finally took their chance only three minutes after the restart. Following brilliant work on the byline by Trent Alexander-Arnold, he set up his Scouse counterpart Curtis Jones, who fired his shot into the corner.

Within minutes, the lead was doubled. After brilliant feet from Firmino, the Brazilian's shot was deflected off Kean Bryan to sail agonisingly past a helpless Ramsdale.

The Reds showed great heart to hold onto the victory, especially after the setbacks the squad has faced this week. 

"I told you before the game, that it is normal we get criticised. This was about us showing we’re still there. We play Chelsea on Thursday, we have to show it again. We have to win football games, we know that. There’s no way into the Champions League without results."

"Tonight we stayed on track and scored in the right moment."
