Klopp explains why Lovren and Matip both managed to get on the scoresheet

What a time to be alive!

We scored two goals from corners for the first time in… well, a long, long time. Skrtel did it against Arsenal in 2014, and we can’t remember another one since.

Even better, the two centre-backs were scorers and both goals were headers. Could it get any more textbook?! None of those lucky bounces or fortunate breaks that we’ve been victim to a few times already this season.

But for Klopp, it wasn’t a surprise. There was no luck involved; he says it’s something that we have been working hard on over the last few weeks in training:

“We work so long on it and today finally we did it. It was a world class cross from Philippe Coutinho,” he said (BBC).

He also admitted we deserved the win, and who can argue. We ended the game with 17 shots compared to Palace’s 7, and walked away with 57 percent of the possession.

“In the first 15 minutes we were not really at 100% then in half an hour we created chance after chance. It was a close game and a deserved win at the end. I’m a very happy man.

“In the second half, Palace did really well. In the first half both goals were kind of a present from us. It was difficult but, in the end, deserved and it feels good.”

What did you think of the game? Surely if we keep playing like that we will be in the hunt come May? Let us know!
