Klopp: Liverpool Deserved Merseyside Derby Win Against Everton

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says his side deserved their win against Everton in the Merseyside derby on Monday night.

Sadio Mane's 94th minute strike, secured the win for Liverpool who now go second in the league table.

"Enjoy isn't the right word – it was very intense and a deserved win in a difficult game," Klopp said in his post match reaction.

"The best thing you can do on a night like this is win and you saw how happy our fans were. I can't remember one chance for Everton."

Klopp criticised Everton for their style of football which was meant to disrupt Liverpool's passing game.

He said:"The plan of Everton was wild football. They were chasing us everywhere, it is really difficult to play against this. We couldn't handle it at first. We will be better at reacting against this in a few months.

"We were much better in the second half, we could have scored earlier but actually I don't care.

"We needed someone who could shoot and Daniel Sturridge did that. If you only win games when you are brilliant you won't win many games. It was a battle and we were ready for it."
