Jurgen Klopp has hailed Liverpool’s performance after claiming a 7-0 win at Maribor in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino netted braces, while Philippe Coutinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Trent Alexander-Arnold also got their names on the scoresheet at the Ljudski Vrt.
As well as praising the Reds’ general play and counterattacking display, Klopp was also happy with his side’s “mature” attitude.
“Our attitude was outstanding – we were spot on from the first second,” the German told BT Sport after the game.
“We scored wonderful goals, played wonderful football and it looked like they (Maribor) were not very good but is difficult to play against us. I love the fact we stayed really concentrated in the second half, we controlled the game and it was a very mature performance.
“You can struggle in a game like this if you do not have a 100% attitude, it was very mature. Seven goals was wonderful, but the counter pressing I was close to celebrating it, it was so good. They are a really good football team and they could not cope with this. All over it was a really nice performance.”
The win sent Liverpool to the top of Group E after Spartak Moscow hammered Sevilla 5-1 in the group’s other game.
