Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool have used all of their experiences this season to put them on a four-game winning run, while hailing two-goal scorer Mohamed Salah.
Klopp said: “After the two weeks we were not together, we spoke about it.
“We have to build on our experiences we made so far during the season. We had pretty much everything. We played all kind of teams and styles.
“It was only one game where it was really bad — and it was Tottenham, it was not good. I know with the other results people will think a little bit differently but, in my eyes, there’s only one really bad game, and we could have won all the other games.
“We have to score in the right moment and we should not concede. When we speak about a performance, we build on that now. This experience, we have used it.
“We have much better protection — I hope we can keep that. That’s a big part of not getting nervous in a game. There’s still a lesson for the whole [of] Liverpool if we don’t score. We have nothing else to do other than try it again and again.
“It looked much more mature and that’s very important for us.”
“What can I say? Salah in a good moment,” Klopp said. “It’s good for us.”
“The second goal was fantastic play — an outstanding pass [from Philippe Coutinho]. I’m pretty sure Phil played a few more of these passes already in his life, but when somebody gets it the box and is not offside then that’s quite rare. Nice goal.
“Southampton are a really good football team and you need these moments — we had these moments not too often so far this season.
“You need these goals and, thank God in the moment, we score them. That makes all the difference.”
