'Insane': Jurgen Klopp stunned after what two Liverpool players managed to do against Wolves

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has described his team’s second goal against Wolves last night as simply ‘insane.’

The Reds hit their visitors with two late sucker-punches at Anfield, to ensure a third Premier League win in four matches. It wasn’t always a straightforward night for Liverpool, but Mohamed Salah’s goal to put them 2-0 up was a real highlight.

It began with a lovely dinked ball from Alisson Becker towards Kostas Tsimikas on the halfway line. Tsimikas played a first-time cushioned header into the path of Cody Gakpo, who served him a perfect one-touch volley down the left-wing.

From there it was all about Kostas. The left-back sped away from Craig Dawson before fizzing a ball into the six-yard box. Waiting was Salah, who swept the ball in with his thigh. Just like that, the game was dead. Speaking to LFCTV post-game, Klopp raved about what he’d seen from Tsimikas and Salah.

“The second goal was insane,” beamed Jurgen. “Super counter-attack, top passes, the patience of Kostas is super – waiting until Mo is finally in the right place, then he just brings it over the line. Then controlling it [the game] again and it made it a great night.”

Tsimikas shows what he’s capable of

Amid all the turgid football we’ve seen from Liverpool this season, there has still been some trademark Klopp goals.

The two against Everton spring to mind as signs that the Reds of old are still alive and kicking somewhere. Last night’s game-clincher was another indication of that.

Usually it would be Andy Robertson ploughing down the Anfield left. How many times have we seen that over the years. Defence to attack in an instant ending with a Robertson assist. Textbook.

Last night it was Tsimikas’ turn. After a tricky opening to the game in which he looked a little too sluggish, the Greek grew into proceedings.

The set-up for Salah marked the sixth assist of a decent campaign from the 26-year-old. Bearing in mind that first-choice Robertson has just one more, that isn’t bad at all.

Of course, it’s unlikely that this will lead to more game time for Tsimikas. Robbo is rightly the man with the shirt and that won’t change anytime soon. But the quality of his back-up is clear, last night gave another reminder of exactly what Liverpool’s ‘Scouse Greek’ brings to the squad.
