Liverpool hails “incredible” Salah in win over West Ham1 min read
Speaking post-match with Sky Sports, as cited by BBC Sport, Klopp suggested that “little adjustments” at half time made the difference:
“It was a great game, a very professional game, very controlled against usually a flying side.
“We didn’t create enough in the first half. We made little adjustments at half-time and it paid off as we scored three unbelievable goals.
“In the first half we had three midfielders on the other side of the ball so Xherdan Shaqiri had to pass backwards. We wanted Divock Origi more in the centre. We played a double 10 then with Thiago and Shaqiri. James Milner is fine but showed signs of hamstring so we chose the right moment to bring him off.”
Klopp added: “Shaq I thought he passed the ball too early. What Mo [Salah] made of it was incredible. The first touch was unbelievable.
“These boys are a really good group. They’re not happy at not being successful, not winning, but they always have the right attitude.”
