Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp was not ready to discuss tactics after his boys defeated Arsenal on penalties in the 4th round of the Carabao Cup yesternight.
Liverpool made 11 changes to the team that defeated Tottenham 2-1 on Sunday, with players like Caoimhin Kelleher, Neco Williams, Sepp van den Berg, Rhian Brewster and Harvey Elliott starting vs Arsenal.
Even if Klopp admitted that his boys were poor at times, he feels tactics should not be center of discussion on such an eventful and memorable night for the youngsters.
His words, “We made some mistakes, we played some average passes,”
“We were too open at times. We can talk about tactics, but who cares on a night like this? I hoped for the boys they would have a game to remember. What they did tonight, I lost it really.
“It’s like a dream to play for the first time at Anfield, but things might not be going right and you have to stay on track. All our goals we scored were wonderful.”
“Kelleher is an outstanding talent. The crossing from Williams, he might not thought he would play tonight.
“Jones… it was not my decision in the end for him to take the last penalty. When I saw the list, Origi was the taker of the last one and they changed it obviously.
“If you don’t win nobody remembers it in three years, if it works out the boys will remember it forever.”
