Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool "needed" Southampton victory

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits the 2-0 win over Southampton kept their Champions League qualification hopes alive but knows there is plenty more still to do if they are to sneak into the top four.

Klopp’s side stumbled over the line against Saints for only a second league win at Anfield in 2021 thanks to Sadio Mane’s first-half header and Thiago Alcantara’s first goal for the club in the 90th minute.

It moved them to within six points of fourth-placed Leicester with a match in hand – the postponed game against Manchester United – but the task is still tough.

“One team is two times clinical and we have several chances, one against one, and we cannot score.

“This is very disappointing for us and when you don’t score, you cannot take something.

“We tried to be brave, tried to play football and we tried to create and things looked quite good but in the end you end up with nothing.

“When you want to win here, you must have a perfect game and this we didn’t have.”
