Jurgen Klopp delighted with Liverpool's counter-attacking in Brighton win
Last Updated: 02/12/17 7:59pm
Jurgen Klopp expressed his delight at Liverpool's attacking mastery as his side recorded a 5-1 victory against Brighton at the Amex Stadium.
The visitors scored twice in two first-half minutes as Emre Can headed in the opener after half an hour before Roberto Firmino netted.
A breathtaking counter-attack, which began with Simon Mignolet saving from Glenn Murray, saw the 26-year-old Brazilian then add his second and the visitors' third just after the break.
Murray pulled a goal back from the spot but Phillipe Coutinho's low free-kick and a Lewis Dunk own goal two minutes later sealed a resounding win, which lifted the Reds to fourth in the Premier League table.
"We scored the first and then the second immediately after, both were fantastic goals, but then there was one of the nicest counter attacks I ever saw in my life," Klopp said.
"After winning the ball, Roberto played a pass and then those three [Mohamed Salah, Coutinho, Firmino], it was so good to watch.
"The boys did very well [counter attacking] but for that you need to defend well and you need to win the ball in the right place.
"it's unbelievable how many good balls Roberto Firmino played. We can be more clinical but how does that sound to say when we have just won 5-1."
