Diogo Jota struck a stunning brace to hand the Reds a two-goal lead shortly after the half-hour mark, with Thiago Alacantara and Virgil van Dijk scoring in either side of the break to inspire Liverpool to victory.

The comfortable win saw the Merseysiders leapfrog Man City into second place on the Premier League standings.

This was the Reds' third consecutive win following their disappointing defeat to West Ham earlier in the month.

But while reflecting on the victory, Klopp once again proved he is the ultimate perfectionist as he chastised his charges for giving away too many chances.

"Talking about stability, I was not happy with the chances we conceded today, to be honest," the German noted.
"I have no problem with Ali making saves in a football game, but these saves were too spectacular so we have to really work on that," he added.

However, the German tactician was quick to single out Jota for praise, noting the forward had all it takes for one to play for a club of Liverpool's stature.

"He’s an exceptional player and an exceptional boy. He’s the perfect signing because he has everything that a Liverpool player in this squad needs," Klopp explained.
