LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed match-winner Roberto Firmino apologised to him for not adding to his tally in the 1-0 victory at Tottenham.

The Brazilian’s ninth Premier League goal of the season won the day for Liverpool and they have now taken 61 points from a possible 63. ‘When I went to him and wanted to give him a hug after the game, he wanted to stop and talk first,’ Klopp explained. ‘He said, “I know I should have scored more goals”. It was absolutely not what I wanted to say.

‘It is true probably, but I didn’t even know exactly. He should have [scored] immediately with the first chance. It was brilliant play and then he hits somehow the defender.

‘Yes, [he is] a super player, super. I don’t say this for the first time and will hopefully not say it for the last time. Pretty impressive.’
