Managers Reaction

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: “We didn’t play particularly well to be 100 percent honest and Preston played long balls. They were tricky to defend and they had their moments. The game was open and we lost our structure in the first half which never helps in football.”

Preston boss Frankie McAvoy: “I felt our game plan was excellent. We knew they’d have a lot of the ball. I’ve just seen the stats, we both had nine attempts each, four on target. There are not many teams that will limit Liverpool to fewer opportunities.”
