Klopp says he is proud of win over Stoke.

Klopp hailed his players for adapting to a change of tactics.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed his delight after the Reds sealed a 4-1 win against Stoke City on Sunday.

Klopp's side took the lead in the 8th minute through Alberto Moreno but Bojan Krkic cancelled out the lead 14 minutes later.

However, Daniel Sturridge restored the lead for Liverpool before Divock Origi's brace.

And after the clash, Klopp told BBC Sport: "Today, I'm really proud. We made changes and it was a completely new formation. I'm sure the players have never played together before in this line-up.

"Stoke played 70 to 80% long balls to Peter Crouch, and you have to be tuned into that. It was a smart performance.

"Divock is still a young lad. We have to be patient. He can play together with Daniel.

"There's absolutely no doubt about that. We hope it stays like this that we have two strikers available like this because we have a big number of games to go."
