Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool deserved victory over Norwich


Reds edge Norwich in nine-goal thriller

LIVERPOOL manager Jurgen Klopp felt the Reds were deserved victors in a remarkable 5-4 win over Norwich in the Premier League on Saturday.

Adam Lallana struck the decisive goal in stoppage time, moments after Sebastien Bassong made it 4-4 in a see-saw contest at Carrow Road.

While Klopp was delighted with the result, he bemoaned his team’s “crazy” defending at set-pieces.

“I think we were deserved winners in a spectacular game,” Klopp told BT Sport.

“But it is crazy what we are doing there [at set-pieces] we have to solve this problem because it is not always possible to score five goals.

“Today we knew it would be difficult because they are not a normal team in this position in the table because they play football, it’s not only long balls and deep defending.

“In the game we felt we could cause them problems but then we should not always concede goals from set plays, because it is easy to play against us.

“You don’t have to create chances you just have to throw the ball over the line and have a set play. Then bring your whole team into our box and something will happen.

“After the game it feels funny but it’s really rubbish what we are doing, we have to solve this.” Kickoff.com
