The victory lifts Jurgen Klopp’s team to 25 point clear and gave the premier league leaders a major step towards their first league title.
James Milner, who contributed to the team’s victory with an outstanding goal-line clearance, speaks to BT Sport. “Any Premier League game is hard to win. It’s a boring thing to say, but it’s true. Especially when you’ve had a couple of performances when we weren’t at our level. Again today, we weren’t at our best, but many teams would have crumbled after a couple of poor results. But we kept going and stayed calm, and with the boys up front, we always have a chance. You can’t question the boys’ heart and desire.”
Mo Salah added: “Today we showed our personality, we had to react, we did well. We need to keep going for the next three games, and the rest of the season.”
Liverpool are now 25 points clear, they need nine points from their remaining games to lift their first league title in 30 years.
