Jurgen Klopp was keen to downplay the significance of Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over RB Leipzig in the first-leg of their Last 16 Champions League encounter.
The Reds achieved their first win in all competitions since the end of January, after coming off the back of a dreadful run of three straight losses in the Premier League.
It was an inspired performance all the way through, though Klopp reminded reporters of the importance of his side building some consistency in results going forward.
In fairness to the German, we’d have to agree that, prior to a couple of disastrous late capitulations, we did look like a side capable of taking home all three points; obviously, of course, this has to be reflected in results for the remainder of the season.
Hopefully, our latest European night will mark the start of a genuine turning point in our fortunes domestically.
