Speaking after the game, Klopp expressed his thoughts on the victory, insisting Liverpool are now back on the map after their win.

“We will see what we can do with it but it is a fantastic sign. We set a mark for LFC tonight that we are back on the international landscape as a football club,” he said.

“I am really happy about the result and the fact that we are through. I knew we had a chance but I didn’t expect it would happen, but the boys made it happen and it was really brilliant.

“There are some places in world football that whichever team, if Man City comes here, if comes here, if comes here, it’s not that they expect to win.

“They know it’s a very, very tough place to come. This club has always outstandingly strong football teams and they have now, but we kept them as often away from our goal as possible.

“I don’t know about the statistics but my impression was that there were not too many difficult situations in and around our box. That’s a massive sign.

“The first step to winning a game like this: it’s not about playing your best football, free-flowing, that’s not possible against this quality. You cannot use your speed, really, because the other team is quick as well.

“It’s not a massive advantage so you have to find different ways [and] tonight we found them.

“That makes me really proud and happy because I really think this club deserves the awareness again. We are back, so good. Let’s carry on.

“We have a lot to improve, we have a lot to develop, we have a lot to learn – but we are back, and I like that.”

Klopp also provided an injury update on skipper Jordan Henderson, after the midfielder was forced off in the first-half with an ankle injury.
