Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp was amazed by his team’s goals against Fulham. According to him, all the players who scored displayed world-class quality.
“I’ve never seen a game with so much world-class quality like this, a competitive match. Trent’s free-kick was extraordinary,” Klopp said after the Liverpool vs. Fulham match, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.
“Macca [Mac Allister], before the game, you could see his right foot today, and he was really ready to shoot. I thought, ‘You should give it a try,’ and he clearly had the same mindset,” he continued.
“Wataru was crucial. He came in, that was really good. Winning decisive challenges, superb passes, the best goal. Trent, scoring his second goal. Honestly, for whatever reason, I didn’t see the ball go in. I might have been turning at that moment; I haven’t seen it again. But everything was quite special,” Klopp revealed.
This victory propels Liverpool to the second position in the current Premier League standings. The Reds have collected 31 points, trailing Arsenal by 2 points at the top.
