Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expresses relief after ‘MASSIVE’ final win over Aston Villa when Reds ended six games of the Premier League home game, praising his party’s ‘legal aggression and greed’

  • Liverpool have finally put an end to their nasty form at Anfield with the 2-1 victory
  • And the German praised the struggle and determination of his party’s achievements

Jurgen Klopp praised his Liverpool side’s ‘legal aggression and greed’ as they finally ended their six games in the Premier League loose streak with a 2-1 win against Aston Villa.

Ollie Watkins opened the scoring for the visitors in the first half, before Mohamed Salah equalized just before the hour and Trent Alexander-Arnold took the three points when he took in an excellent 91st minute winner.

The result – an end to their recent home game – will inject much-needed confidence in the side in the run-up to their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Real Madrid, where they aim to turn a 3-1 deficit in the first leg at Anfield.

And Reds boss Klopp praised his team for the fighting skills they showed in their victory.

He said after the game, ‘Oh, it’s a big one, it’s a big one. We’ve lost the last six home games, which is really not a good number, nothing you want.

‘Then we scored the tying run, but it’s offside again, not much.

“We go in halfway through and you can imagine it’s not the best mood. But the guys were fine and I didn’t have to lift them too much.

They knew that if we continued with these things, the legal aggression, the desire, if we played football the way we did, we would create opportunities again.

‘How we handled their game was very good, but you have to score the goals. It took a while, but then we scored them. That was huge, and felt huge, and it really is a relief. ‘

Klopp’s side will face Los Blancos on Wednesday before traveling to Elland Road to play against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds on Monday.
