Jurgen Klopp makes ‘strange’ Liverpool admission following a record 9-0 victory

Jurgen Klopp has told Liverpool fans to enjoy the Reds’ record-breaking 9-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth, teasing that such a result is unlikely to happen again as his side bounced back in the best possible way after losing to Manchester United on Monday night.

With braces from Roberto Firmino and Luis Diaz, as well as goals from Harvey Elliott, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Fabio Carvalho, and a Chris Mepham own goal, Liverpool equaled the competition’s overall record.

Following the loss at United, Klopp admitted that he didn’t see such a victory coming, but was pleased with how the team started the game, as they bounced back in memorable fashion.

“9-0 is a strange result. It will not happen often,” he admitted to reporters. “With a combination of the weather we had today, it will probably never happen again. It would be too much coincidence.

“But it is very important. It was needed. It was not that we worked less in the last eight weeks. We were all in a really good mood. We really liked what we saw most of the time, but then we didn’t get it on the ground.

“You have to turn a few other screws but that’s the job. When it then works out like today it’s fantastic. Everybody should celebrate today. Let’s go out, have a nice weekend. Great. But we are very close to Newcastle already. Perfect weekend.”

He continued: “After the United game I said how difficult it is to answer questions. If I see positive things in a 2-1 defeat to United, people think I am mad.

“This game was a little bit more us, we should have won this game. I don’t say that about all games against United. This specific game we really felt we came short. There was something to build on but it is difficult to get that from a thing like this.

“So it’s better to ignore it completely and use it as a negative experience. Did we see it coming? No. Neither last week nor today but it is not out of this world that we lose at United 2-1, especially when we don’t play at our highest level.

“That can happen and is very likely to happen. And for today I wanted the start we showed. We cannot give guarantees for results but I expect we give guarantees for performance levels. Today we started.”
