Jurgen Klopp Says He Would Have Paid Double For Alisson After Save

Jurgen Klopp Says He Would Have Paid Double For Alisson After Save

"When people are shouting at me I take it because they want to make me better and (if it is) their mistake they take it as well if I shout to them".

The ties will take place on February 12/13 or February 19/20.

"If I knew Alisson was this good - I would have paid double", said Klopp. A minute into stoppage time the ball dropped at the feet of Arkadiusz Milik in the Liverpool penalty area.

Will Alisson's save prove to be as pivotal as Gerrard's goal?

The Reds beat Porto, Manchester City and Roma over two legs on their way to the final in Kiev past year, although we all know the nightmare that occurred with Loris Karius against Real Madrid. Rui, then Koulibaly and then the goalkeeper.

Against Napoli, they enjoyed the flip side.

Former Liverpool defender Gary Gillespie believes that the Reds need to bolster their midfield with some creativity, but feels that Naby Keita and Fabinho could become the finished product in 12 months.

Mohamed Salah scored the only goal of the game in the 34th minute at Anfield as Jurgen Klopp's men progressed through to the knockout phase of Europe's elite club competition.

The Egyptian fluffed his first chance of the night when he miscontrolled Andrew Robertson's excellent cross with just David Ospina to beat. Sure, the shot was right at him but that was because Alisson rushed off his line and read the situation perfectly.

Save made, job done, game won.

Anfield was bouncing in the early exchanges, with the Kop in full voice in hope for another famous European night under the lights.

But instead, Klopp was allowed to reinvest the Coutinho money by signing Virgil van Dijk for £75 million in January and Alisson in the summer.

Tottenham Hotspur battled back from a goal down in Camp Nou to draw 1-1, courtesy of a late Lucas Moura goal against already-group-winners-to-no-surprise Barcelona, and claim the point they needed to advance from Group B by an agonizingly thin margin.

"We know we have to do a lot to not lose games and even more to win it".

Ancelotti insisted Virgil van Dijk should have received a straight red card for a risky first-half challenge on Dries Mertens, the Liverpool defender taking the ball and then the forward's ankle. The yellow card he received for the Mertens foul will see him suspended for the first leg of the round of 16, and Liverpool will miss him. It was that good and that important.
