Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp on Premier League match against Newcastle on Saturday at St James’ Park  he said ,”It was incredibly difficult for the boys today to be honest, it’s clear we played two-and-a-half days ago, if you want. Coming here, [against] a team in form, six home wins on the bounce, great weather, everybody in a good mood [and] actually, pretty much everything is prepared for another home win. The only group who wanted to avoid that were my players. It was an outstanding football game, to be honest. [In the] First 15 minutes we had to adapt slightly a little bit, that’s normal. Obviously, Newcastle changed a little bit, put Joelinton on the right side – left side, our right – and kept the ball there [and] went for second balls. We struggled a bit, tried to adapt to it, did better, when the ball was on the ground we had a really good game already, I really liked how we played, how we put them [and] kept them quiet. [I] Can’t remember a lot of counter-attacks, there was the offside goal they scored and there might [have been] one second half, [but] the chance they had was offside as well. In the circumstances, [a] top-class performance. Really happy.”
