Liverpool boss Klopp shrugs off Henderson red after Watford rout

Liverpool boss Klopp shrugs off Henderson red after Watford rout

But Jordan Henderson will miss next weekend's Merseyside derby with Everton after being sent off late on for two bookings.

Whilst they trail leaders Manchester City by two points, Klopp appreciates how impressive it is to reach a club milestone such as the one his players have now reached.

"It's nice. At this fantastic big club, that this group of players can get this record is really nice", he said.

"We all know the season isn't finished, and those records don't bring anything".

"I am very happy, very happy to extend my time at Liverpool", Mane told the Liverpool website.

"Maybe I should not talk about it but to explain how hard things are, we had exactly one session to prepare this game", Klopp said.

"We are not going to concede that many goals - and the forwards can score the goals".

The spat between the pair has received much attention, ever since Salah was forced off in the Champions League final in May when The Reds lost to Real Madrid, after a tussle with Real captain Ramos resulted in a dislocated shoulder.

No action was taken as it was deemed to be due to an "administrative mistake" while Ramos has denied any wrongdoing and the World Anti-Doping Agency has said the matter is closed.

Liverpool fans were quick to blame the Spain skipper, and even began an online petition to have him retroactively punished.

"But we had Trent [Alexander-Arnold] and Dejan [Lovren] at 100 per cent, so we didn't have to make a decision".

Klopp said the team had just one full training session to prepare for the game following the worldwide break. I know you always expect perfection but we had one session to prepare.

"Because they came back on Thursday - the Brazilians and Robbo [Robertson], for example. We needed to focus on the specific quality of the opponent", he explained.

In the similar games a year ago, we were not that convincing.

With the score level Robertson clipped Will Hughes in the box but referee Jon Moss ignored the hosts' protests.

"In similar games previous year, we were not that convincing".

"They had moments but you can't stop that".
