"To be honest it smashed me in my mouth and I can’t remember much! I was there on the line, I thought, ‘If they get a shot off I’ve got a good chance of blocking it if I’m on line"

When asked about Jurgen Klopp pushing him more forward in the second half, Williams was happy to play wherever he is put.

"To be honest, I just felt like I had the energy. In the first half especially I was getting right up, I was trying to play as high as I can. Wherever the gaffer puts me I’m happy to play."

Williams nearly ended up with a goal himself but was unable to get on the scoresheet.

"I’m just thankful that we got the win and that I made a contribution to the goals."

"I was fuming about that – I should have got on the scoresheet! Never mind, hopefully in the next game I’ll maybe score."
