Jurgen Klopp hails Liverpool’s fighting spirit as he sets points target for title

After 3-1 win over Southampton, Liverpool are back to leading the league.

The Reds coach Jurgen Klopp hailed Liverpool’s fighting spirit as the team made a comeback from being down 1-0.

“The performance was not top level – but it is about fighting,” said Klopp.

“People want us to play like Manchester City. We are unable to do that – we play our own football.

“We have 82 points now. That is massive in this crazy league with everyone is waiting for us. I am really proud. It is incredible.

“We had to work for this. But all three goals were brilliant. It is nice for Naby Keita to score the first. After that we controlled the game.

“We have 82 points. You need 90 or so for the title. We are in the race. I told the boys we have a good mentality amongst us. We work for the moment, not wait for the moment.

“Mo could not pass for his goal. It was go, go, go – and a world-class finish. This win was really big for us.”
