Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said ,”The game against Brentford – I knew before that it will be a really tough one – it was a tough one and that’s why I’m so happy that we did so well in other moments. We showed the boys at half-time three situations where we did really well in the first half. I think we had more but we showed them three where we really played the way we have to play. [We] scored on top of that a goal from a set-piece, which is absolutely helpful because the set-pieces against Arsenal were really bad. Today they were really good and we should keep that – that would be very helpful. I think apart from a spell in the second half when they took a bit more risk, we needed a little bit too long to adapt to it, so they had then a chance, a real chance, but in the moment when we adapted we controlled the game again, scored really nice goals and I’m really happy about it.”
