Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has spoken highly of Aston Villa to the club’s official website.

Klopp was impressed with how Villa played against his Liverpool team in the Premier League game at the weekend.

Although the Reds won the match 2-1 at Villa Park, they needed two late goals and had to come from behind to bag the points.

 

Liverpool manager Klopp has suggested that Villa deserved something from the match and will feel bad that they did not.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official website: “I think, of course, it is lucky when you score these goals but I think if you watch the game, then I think if one team deserved to win it then it is us.

"But I can imagine how bad Aston Villa feel because with all they did today they would have deserved something, but that's how it is sometimes.”
