Liverpool FC — ‘We had to prove a point for ourselves’

On the one phrase he’d use to sum up the efficiency…


On the response from his gamers to three Premier League video games with out a win…

So, we had to prove a point – we had to prove a point for ourselves. After a quick pre-season with combined outcomes; good performances and fewer good performances, which is totally regular for a pre-season. Having an absolute spotlight that early within the season and enjoying actually good things [against City] after which dropping for some purpose.

I understand how it sounds while you lose a sport and you then attempt to clarify and it is at all times the identical, every supervisor on the earth is a improbable entertainer while you win soccer video games… when you’ve gotten to reply questions while you lose a sport you attempt to discover explanations, and clearly they sound like excuses or no matter. And that is why the general public a part of my job isn’t vital, it is simply what is the conclusion for us and that is why I stated we had to prove a point for us.

We weren’t pleased with the way in which we performed; we had good moments in almost all of the video games. We confirmed issues which we’re robust at and different issues the place now we have to enhance and that is what we had to do immediately, however you can not make a listing and take all of them off the listing step-by-step. You simply have to give the sport a correct route and that is why I beloved the beginning immediately a lot. We did not hesitate, we did not maintain something again, we simply went into the sport full flying, put them underneath stress, had the battles in the correct areas within the field, across the field, our bodies within the field, second ball conditions, go once more, and these sorts of issues. Yes, counter-attacking risk, in fact, however that is the danger you’ve gotten to take.

We can’t do the whole lot in the identical second and you then get this early objective and the second; two fantastic objectives… how we performed it, how we had been positioned, the ending, the set-up – all good. And we saved going, scored completely different objectives and, clearly, at all times with the identical function; [to] hold going, put them underneath stress, do not cease. And then it is 5-0 for half-time and I could not respect extra what Scott is doing at Bournemouth in not the best circumstances how I can see from outdoors. So… half-time for us was vital that we once more hold going, as a result of it is early within the season and it isn’t for us now to management it a little bit and allow them to rating one and have this sort of bitter style after a fantastic afternoon, so you then get out [of the] blocks once more with 6-0 and all people scored and we may carry on the youngsters, which deserve it a lot, so we may rotate if you would like at the beginning of essentially the most busy interval I’ve skilled. I can say it already earlier than now we have performed, it is going to be loopy.

In the top it was the right soccer afternoon for us, lot of various goalscorers, all these form of issues, so, fantastic objectives, improbable conditions and we all know we wanted one thing like that. We had larger probabilities in different video games and did not use them – that is the character of the factor. But at one point you want, I believe Fabio had a better state of affairs towards Palace if I’m proper, he had a volley the place the entire objective was open and now immediately he takes a volley and it is in. So, sure, he is aware of he can do this, all of us knew it earlier than and now we will go from right here.
