Jurgen Klopp reacts to Alberto Moreno's display in Liverpool's 1-0 win

Jurgen Klopp reacts to Alberto Moreno's display in Liverpool's 1-0 win

"We've got to take our chances in the Premier League".

Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet preserved the points with a crucial save, denying Matt Phillips in a one-on-one situation, and Klopp praised his all-round contribution.

Much of the pre-match buildup focused on Liverpool's issues in coping with set-pieces - a real strength of West Bromwich under Tony Pulis. "We were really disappointed about the goal". Moreno is clear with men either side, but he shoots from 40 yards and misses the empty net! It was tempting to wonder what Klopp's reaction would have been had Albion scored when they pumped the ball into the Liverpool area moments later. These three points were phenomenal.

"We might not finish in a position where you want but we want to get to cup finals and maybe, one day, finish in that position so we can play in Europe".

'You need to be on the highest concentration level.

"I think it is actually positive when there is interest. That's my job. I'm pleased with that but like I say, everybody did their jobs today and that's the important thing when you play away from home - you have to grind out results sometimes", concluded the Belgian keeper.

"It's been a great season for West Bromwich Albion and West Bromwich Albion supporters".

When he was asked why the Baggies hadn't scored in four games, something they haven't done since 2003, Pulis said: "Missed chances".

"I thought it was a very special game for Divock Origi today".

The second half followed a similar pattern to the first, with chances at a premium.

"We've got to be better than that".

In the second half, James Milner fired wide just before the hour mark, while Firmino saw another goal ruled out for offside. What is clear is that it was an bad time for Albion to concede.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp expressed his relief after their Reds' victory at West Brom yesterday boosted their Champions League hopes.

A minute later, Coutinho sent a hard volley wide from the left-hand side of the penalty area, but another opening went begging for the home side as Robson-Kanu fired tamely at Simon Mignolet after collecting a pass from Phillips.

Despite those first-half scares, Liverpool dominated possession and ought to have doubled their lead when Milner profligately volleyed Firmino's cross over the bar just before the hour mark.
