“It’s of course from the training ground, the Robbo (Robertson) one is from the training ground,” added Klopp. “The Trent one, I really see the boys on the pitch today had the best view on the pitch. It’s their job to see the best opportunity to score.

“It was a direct free-kick so could have scored directly, but this little move changed the whole angle and made it pretty impossible for Kepa (Arrizabalaga) to make a save. It was a brilliant goal.

“Pete Krawietz and our analysts, they do a really good job around set-pieces, especially corner kicks. I loved the corners in the second half where we probably should have scored twice.

“But it wasn’t a set-piece game, we played a lot of good stuff and in the end you have to score and that’s what we did. All good.”
