Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hailed the depth of quality he has in his squad as his fringe players starred in Wednesday night 5-2 win over Everton.
Klopp made five changes to his side against to the Toffess, leaving Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino on the bench in what is seen as one of the club’s most important games of the season.
The fringe players however put up a fine performance in the game with Divock Origi scoring twice.
Xherdan Shaqiri also capped a fine performance with a goal while Adam Lallana impressed with a busy showing in midfield.
“There were a lot of great football moments in that game,” Klopp said.
“We made five changes. I speak a lot about the quality in the squad, so I have to show it from time to time.
“You give the responsibility to the boys and they have to show that they can perform and what they’re made of, which is incredible.
“Divock’s goal, Sadio’s passes, Shaq’s everything, Adam Lallana everywhere and he had so many really really good moments. Just so many good football moments. But, of course, from time to time a bit rusty in defending because they were really direct.
“It was all good until 4-1, but the 4-2 I didn’t like so much. But we have to learn and have to improve and that’s what we will do.
“They are fantastic footballers. I said before the season that there is no one in the squad who is not an outstanding footballer.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
