Jurgen Klopp has taken the blame for Arsenal almost managing to snatch a draw in our 4-3 win this afternoon.
We were 4-1 up with 25 minutes to go, but goals from Oxlade-Chamberlain and Chambers gave the Gunners an unlikely route back into the match.
“I played a big part in the excitement of the last half-hour, because it’s not allowed to celebrate the fourth goal like this with 35 minutes to go,” admitted Klopp.
“At this moment, we switched off the machines. The game was not over. Arsenal lost, but we gave them a path back into the game.” (BBC)
He also joked about his glasses incident.
“If somebody wants to watch me lose my glasses, they can,” he laughed.
“I will try to improve on this.”
Double goal-scorer Coutinho also had his say on the events.
“It was a good, tough game. We are happy because we won. The first 20 minutes, we didn’t play very well like the manager wanted,” he said.
“We played a difficult game and played really well. We’ll focus on the next game, and take it step by step.”
