JOB Done !

'Job done' was Jürgen Klopp's verdict


Goals in either half from Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain secured three points for the Reds to Top Group E.

However Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp didn’t hide that his team suffered before the victory over its Belgian guest Genk 2-1


The Reds were unable to impose their rhythm during the game, especially as the Boss resorted to rest some of hos main players, such as Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Andy Robertson, before the upcoming match next week against Manchester City in the Premier League

Liverpool moved to the top of the group with this victory, now with 9 points, The Reds are beating Napoli by one point, and became very close to qualifying for the next round.

Klopp said in a statement to "BT Sports" after the end of the game: "We did not finish the situations that were presented to us in the appropriate way, we had many shots and really great opportunities we usually take advantage of, we did not do that and we kept the match open, and this gave them a lot of energy."

He added: "It was a good goal for them, the goal kept them alive. In the end, if we scored only one goal and then they scored a goal, it takes a lot of effort, Ox (Alex Oxlade Chamberlain) scored that wonderful goal again, but I repeat, we did not finish the situation the right way, the players progressed but the harmony was not there at the end of the match, we had some problems but not to the point of seriousness, we accomplished the mission. "

Milner said in comments to the BBC:

"I think we were good at times, the young people tried to keep the game going high, the match would have been more comfortable, but they did it, I am just satisfied with the result,"

He added: "The set-pieces are always dangerous, there were 6 changes in the squad tonight, so the most difficult thing was to maintain the team shape, which is something we can consider improving."


And he concluded by saying: "Every game is difficult in the Champions League, it is a dull but true statement ... Now we need to finish the mission (qualify), we are in a good position."

 

The OX has now scored four goals in his last four displays after netting in the second half to secure Liverpool the 2-1 victory over Genk at Anfield, and was named Man of the match.

Speaking after the victory over the Belgian champions, Oxlade-Chamberlain told Liverpoolfc.com: "I feel like I'm getting better”

He also reacted on the game by saying:

"We've got improvements to make but first thing's first, it's great to get the three points tonight and we need to focus on the next game and make sure we finish this off now."

Not forget to mention that Liverpool received shocking news before the game, when it was decided to play against Aston Villa in the League Cup quarter-finals on the 17th of next December, while the team is participating in the FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar, and the German coach said: "We will see what happens The final decision about my squad is not made yet, it does not mean that we can play a game here and then another game there the next day, a decision will not be made now, all other solutions were not good for us, now we have a little time to think about it."
