Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp told BT Sport: “It was exactly what we needed tonight. A new formation, we had to change things. We had plenty of chances, imagine if we had taken more of them. Really good game. Very important.
“Two set piece goals as well – I love this as it means you don’t need to wait for VAR.
“Unlucky in moments offensively, rock solid defensively apart from the very end. It will be a different game next week.
[On TAA’s defending] “There is no problem with defending – in good moments everything is fine – if there is no protection it looks like he is exposed. We changed it a little bit today.
“We expected a reaction – everyone expected a reaction – we really want to turn this into a positive and for that we need consistency. For that, you need top-class defending and we had that tonight. It worked out pretty well.”Copyright: Getty Images

St Mirren visit Ibrox on Saturday and might be worried about a backlash, while Liverpool have got a biggie away to Premier League leaders Arsenal on Sunday.
