Jurgen Klopp: 'The last situation in the first half was how you do the counter-attack'
Jurgen Klopp's post-City reaction
"It was quite difficult tonight, again especially with the start. This wonderful goal that we served them on a plate. I was expecting something like that but I liked the reaction immediately after that.
"City took all the risks they could take, we needed a bit of luck and a disciplined defending formation. I was not overly happy at half-time to be honest.
"He (Pep Guardiola) took all the risks and it was his decision and it could’ve been the absolute right one, it's easy to say afterwards. They could’ve scored two or three goals in the first half but it was 100% clear that if we win the ball we’d have an opportunity.
"The last situation in the first half was how you do the counter-attack and that’s how we scored the two goals. It’s not about perfection it’s about the result, the character, the mentality, really fighting for the result. We defended well, it's not our best game but we deserved it at the end."
