Liverpool Played Better In Second Half At Wolves –Klopp

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp says his team played better in the second half of their 3-1 win over Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday, September 16 at Molineux Stadium.

Hwang Hee-Chan gave Wolves an early lead in the seventh minute of the encounter and the home team took the lead into the halftime break.

However, in the second half, goals from Cody Gakpo, Andy Robertson and an own-goal by Hugo Bueno gave Liverpool a 3-1 victory.

Speaking during the post-match news conference Klopp said it was a game of two halves.

“Oh, I thought in the first half a couple of times, what the… We were not ready first half obviously, but Wolves really did well on top of that,” Liverpoolfc.com quoted Klopp as saying.

“You could see it in these situations when they threw three players into the box and we were not there, the last step not there. I worked with these boys now, with some of them a few weeks, seven, eight or nine weeks, with some longer — I know when they can, they are there.

“Today, they couldn’t in a lot of moments. You saw it with Macca, saw it with other players. But I know as well after a long time if you can get through a first half with a reasonable result, like not being massively down, you can turn it.

“Obviously completely different halves. You saw pretty much the same players. First half looked a bit rusty and the second half the boys were.. it looked much easier.

“Second half: we were really good, controlled the game and kept going and scored one and then not directly the second so we needed a while. So 3-1 is a result I didn’t expect after 20 minutes and maybe not in halftime, but during the second half we deserved the result.”

Liverpool are currently third in the Premier League standings on 13 points from five games.

Up next for The Reds is the Europa League Group E clash against Austrian side LASK on Thursday, September 21 at the Raiffeisen Arena in Linz.
