Liverpool vs Burnley: Klopp Singles out two Players for Praise after EPL 2-0 victory

 

Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has singled out two of his players for praise following the Reds’ Premier League 2-0 win against Burnley on Saturday.

The two players are full-backs, Konstantinos Tsimikas and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Both Tsimikas and Alexander-Arnold were impressive for Liverpool as they defeated Burnley at Anfield, thanks to two goals from Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane.

Praising the impact of his two attack-minded full-backs, Klopp said at his post-match press conference, “Both full-backs had a good game.

“Both spectacular, if you want, with two nice [assists] – Kostas with the cross and Trent with the little cheeky curve ball or whatever for Sadio. It was a good game.

“I think everybody thinks both full-backs played a good game and in this situation, that means they were defensively really good as well in a really difficult game from a defensive point of view.

“In football, usually you have a plan, you have an idea, you want to win the ball here or there, against Burnley there is no winning the ball here or there.

“It is only around the centre-halves where you have to pick the ball up and we have to protect constantly like crazy.

“I cannot remember a high-press situation, it is just not possible, at least it was not possible today. But the full-backs were really good, which helped us to win the game.”

Liverpool will now face Chelsea in their next Premier League fixture next Saturday.
