Klopp: When we are rolling, it’s difficult to stop
Liverpool’s victory took Jurgen Klopp’s side an astonishing 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League.
“The readiness to improve and learn from the game is what we had to do to win,” said Klopp. “The set-up of Southampton I could not give more credit to.
“They had too many shots on target and we had to change in the second half. That helped massively and when we are rolling it’s difficult to stop.
“Even when it was 4-0 Southampton did not stop and I have so much respect for that.”
