Here are four key things from Klopp’s post-match press conference at Atletico Madrid: 1.

There was a lot to digest for Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool’s rollercoaster 3-2 victory at Atletico Madrid, but the key was that a “dirty three points” were added to the tally.

8 and that “we did not play the second part of the first half because of Naby as he is in really good shape.” His comments on Keita’s playing time suggest a start at Old Trafford is not in the reckoning and it could be that Curtis Jones will be back in contention to keep things fresh.

“We had so many things to consider, who played where and I think in the end we had too many players on the pitch who played for their national team all the games and the last Premier League game.” The likes of Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Naby Keita, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah all started at Watford and featured heavily for their country over the break.

‘Nothing to do with Naby’ Naby Keita was the casualty from the first half, with Fabinho taking his place at the start of the second but it was “nothing to do with Naby, we just had to defend the right side better.” The manager wanted to make it clear that he has “already spoken” to his No.

Klopp wasn’t aware and simply waved him off as he stared down the tunnel, creating a talking point post-match.

Klopp would think twice about the lineup It was far from smooth sailing in the Spanish capital and Klopp made just one change from the one that thumped Watford to the tune of 5-0, with Alisson in for Caoimhin Kelleher.
