Klopp: Liverpool's priority is always to defend

RobertoFirmino- Cropped

Jurgen Klopp says he was pleased with his side's improved second half performance, as Liverpool romped to a 5-0 victory over Swansea in the Premier League.

The Swans earned a 3-2 win over Liverpool in this fixture last season and they'll hope for a repeat at Anfield.

"If you're making basic errors that you'd expect to see in academy football against Liverpool and the quality they've got then they're going to punish you", he said.

"That is not in my interest". They will all score. I think the first three goals were from counter-pressing situations, that's good and it looks like when you see the result is 5-0 that it was an easy game but it wasn't an easy game.

Ayew's hard work off the ball will also help to stifle the Reds' fluid attack. If we stay consistent and avoid our mistakes, mistakes like in the 3-3 draw with Arsenal, we will win much more games than we lose or draw.

"It is a ideal result for us, nobody injured I don't think. Important three points, five goals, clean sheet so it's all good".

"But there's nobody on the pitch who is not involved in defending".

Their primary version of what happened is a technical malfunction that caused the bus to veer off the road and down the stairway. Five people were killed when a city bus ploughed into a pedestrian underpass in western Moscow on Monday, traffic police said.

"Roberto, I always appreciate his effort, his performance, if he scores twice I am happy about that".

More Liverpool meet Swansea in a classic Boxing Day battle, with the league's lowest scorers travelling to face one of the most feared attacking teams in the Premier League.

In the first half he was right full back, he was left full back, he was everywhere.

A two-goal lead was just reward for Liverpool's positive approach, but Swansea yet again missed the chance to hit back straight away when Leroy Fer couldn't turn in a cross from Wayne Routledge. Paul Clement subsequently lost his job, and with the side rooted to the bottom of the table, getting anything from this second trip to Liverpool in just over a week would prove hard.

But Klopp said he had no interest in the numbers, highlighting Firmino's second goal - a tap in from a Mohamed Salah pass - as an example of how he wants his team to play.

Should Ayew perform to the standards expected of him, Alexander-Arnold may struggle to get forward and one of Liverpool's prominent offensive routes to goal will but cut out, thus increasing the chances of Swansea springing another surprise at Anfield.
