Klopp and Liverpool Wary of Barca-Like Comeback
“It’s much better than I expected before the game but already I’m more interested in the Stoke game than the second leg against Roma.
“The atmosphere tonight was absolutely outstanding and everyone who has a ticket I expect the same on Saturday [at home against Stoke City], because we need it.
“It’s a massive game, we need to be ready, we will try everything we can to be ready for that.”
Liverpool were dealt a blow, courtesy an injury to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
“To be honest the biggest blow in the dressing room is [Oxlade-Chamberlain’s] injury. Conceding two goals is not what we want but we can’t change it, that’s football,” Klopp said.
“The boys played a brilliant game over a very long period and even in the last few minutes when we conceded – Dejan [Lovren] played a world-class game but he misjudged a ball, usually it’s no problem if the full-back is in the right position.
“Trent [Alexander-Arnold] is in the wrong position, but they won all the balls before. They get in a good position and can score. We made one mistake, the referee made one mistake [for the penalty], two goals for them, that’s how it is.”
