Jurgen Klopp shares his post-match message to Liverpool players last night

Jurgen Klopp shared his post-match message to the Liverpool players after their win against Wolves last night. The Reds produced a fine performance.

Jurgen Klopp was thrilled last night as his side overcame Wolves. A team with eight changes risked crashing out of the FA Cup but we instead saw Liverpool’s finest display in weeks.

The Reds controlled the game and secured the win via a remarkable Harvey Elliott goal. There was nothing but positivity afterwards – Liverpool looked a lot more like themselves.

And so Klopp had a message for his players after the game. He shared it in a post-match press conference, explaining that this was a feeling they’d forgotten.

“Yeah, it was good [the performance],” said Klopp. “I said to the boys after the game, ‘that’s how it feels when you play well and win’.

“We can’t remember really, anymore, when that was the case and tonight it was the case and that’s why we are quite happy.”

Jurgen Klopp for Liverpool

This was exactly what Klopp needed to see. Liverpool were far more ‘Liverpool’, closing spaces correctly and showing genuine energy out there.

The fact it came after so many changes is certainly interesting, too. We saw an 18-year-old Stefan Bajcetic at the base of midfield, Fabio Carvalho and Elliott on the wings. James Milner even started at right-back.

And it was nothing but positive. Exactly what Klopp does from here isn’t clear, given some senior stars must come back into the side. It was evidence, though, of what can happen with a few changes here and there.

The current starting XI isn’t delivering what Klopp needs. This side did, even when low on confidence. That’s got to mean something and it may see some big changes when Liverpool face Chelsea this weekend.

We’re certainly hoping so.
