Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp makes Reds demand over Premier League title hopes

“Usually, we win or we draw when we are good and lose most of the time when we are average,” Klopp admitted after Liverpool’s first 1-0 league win since August 2017.

“We have a lot of things to improve, but it’s clear that still winning on a not-perfect day gives you different opportunities. 

“And that is what we have to change.

“We want to be brilliant all the time but, if that doesn’t happen, that doesn’t mean we don’t go for a result.

“We fought for this result and so I am really happy.”

Liverpool have earned widespread plaudits for their defensive strength as the only Premier League team yet to concede a goal this season.
