The only problem I had for the club was that I wanted to get some money: 'Sign a new contract and then we'll sell you!' But that wasn't really realistic, ' Klopp is quoted in the Liverpool Echo.

"He was in really good shape so we thought a few minutes tonight would be possible".

There had been wholesale changes - including Loris Karius replacing Alisson on the latter's maiden Anfield appearance - and two substitutes combined to make sure of victory.
