By India Today Sports Desk: Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has said that he was satisfied with his team’s performance despite their 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on Saturday in the Premier League.
Chances were available at a premium at Selhurst Park with both sides having some good chances. Mohamed Salah did have shot in the second half that hit the post, but Palace were compact and defence and were able to get a point in the end.
The result wasn’t the one Liverpool wanted as they were looking to bounce back from their loss to Real Madrid mid-week. However, Klopp seems to be satisfied with the result.
Speaking after the match, as quoted by BBC Sport, the Liverpool manager said that his team’s style was good in the match and they were able to silence the home crowd.
“Clean sheet brilliant, that’s what you want. A point, OK. It’s really similar to all the games we’ve played here in recent years. The difference is we didn’t score.
“The longer the game went on the more Crystal Palace came up. Our style was really good. There was no atmosphere, people weren’t happy with the way Palace played – because of us,” said Klopp.
Klopp also said that his team lost balls at the wrong moments and it is something they would need to work on.
“We had three big chances. One of them should be in and fine. They hit the crossbar but didn’t hit the target. We lost balls at the wrong moment. We have to stop that. Today we reacted much better to that. Mistakes will always happen, you just have to react in the right way and they did.
“Palace were really compact. This is a game and a situation where you don’t score five goals, especially if you don’t score the first one,” said Klopp.
Liverpool are currently seventh on the Premier League table and six points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.
