Jurgen Klopp says 5-0 Swansea result 'perfect' for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp says 5-0 Swansea result 'perfect' for Liverpool

The hosts' sluggishness prevented Jurgen Klopp's scoring further until early in the second half when Firmino volleyed in Coutinho's free-kick before adding his second after Trent Alexander-Arnold drilled in a half-volley off the underside of the crossbar, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain firing in the fifth seven minutes from time. That should be enough. "So good, such a fantastic improvement, development, outstanding, played for the England national team, played for us and was superb".

"I was a bit disappointed with myself today, although I'm happy to score", Oxlade-Chamberlain said on Sky Sports.

'I spoke about consistency of performance and I really think we are there.

Liverpool's defensive issues were highlighted again during Friday's 3-3 draw with Arsenal, although Klopp believed the goals conceded in that game were down to individual errors, rather than collective issues. I could have done better with my end product a few times. "Both are out for the next two games for sure".

"As it was and so it will be against Swansea, we have to perform first of all and then we have to see how the other team can react".

The three points ensure that Liverpool remain 4th in the Premier League table, while Swansea remain bottom, now five points off safety.




"He is getting the goals now that you'd expect from a centre-forward".

"When you go to one of the so-called bigger clubs and perform like that and get the result - especially in the position we were in, with the confidence low".

'I want to defend first of all because that is the basis for everything.

"It will be a very hard test for us going up there but the players have got to relish that and look forward to it".

Meanwhile, Joe Gomez was particularly at fault for Alexis Sanchez's goal at Arsenal, which brought the home side back into match just seconds after Liverpool took a two-goal lead. "You have to give everything you've got", he said.

"I'm part of it, of course it's the players out on the pitch".
