Jurgen Klopp says “passion” was a key factor in Liverpool’s FA Cup victory

Jurgen Klopp said ‘passion’ was the main reason Liverpool won their FA Cup replay with Wolves.

The Reds headed to Molineux badly after losing their last two Premier League matches.

However, they did book themselves a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup after a 1-0 win over Wolves, thanks to a fine Harvey Elliott goal and plenty of committed defence.

While Elliott’s goal caught the eye, it was the defense that really pleased the Liverpool manager.

“It seems like a long time ago we had the feeling of winning and playing well.” Klopp told BBC Sport: “We had to fight really hard in the end that we controlled for so long. It’s fantastic and the reaction we wanted to see.

“It was good from Harvey Elliott, especially after an early ankle injury. He fought through and the goal was exceptional.

“I had a few guys showing up today. We played a really good first half, had good runs in the second half and at the end it was just a passion for blocking shots. Cup game, great.

“From the emotion we showed, yeah [we deserved to win]. My job is to help the boys and find the formation in which they feel good from the start.

“Stefan Bagcetic and the whole midfield were really compact so it was difficult for Wolves to find key players like Joao Moutinho. I liked the game a lot.”

Liverpool He will now travel to Brighton, who beat them 3-0 last week, at FA cup Fourth round.
