Jurgen Klopp reacts to Liverpool win over West Ham: 'I wish we’d done better.'

Updated: Jan 31, 2020

Liverpool continued their march towards the title with a win over the Hammers.

Jurgen Klopp was pleased Liverpool beat West Ham on Wednesday, but the German wasn't happy with how his Reds performed on the night despite moving 19 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

A first-half penalty from Mohamed Salah and a second-half strike from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain secured a 2-0 victrory over the Hammers as the Merseyside club extended their unbeaten Premier League run to forty-one matches.

It's the Reds' 23rd win from 24 games and they're on course for a 19th league title - the first in 30 years.

“It was not a brilliant performance. I wish we’d done better, but I’ll take it like it is,” said Klopp.

“If it was easy to win this amount of games a lot of other teams would have done it. It was a tough game. We’ve played some super games, this was just a game.”

Liverpool have now beaten every other team in the league this season, but Klopp says he isn't bothered by the stats.

He said: “I don’t feel anything like that. I wanted to win the game but nobody was thinking it was 18 teams, let’s make it 19.

“When you jump in the water you don’t breathe for 38 games then you come up and look around. That’s how we see it.”
