Jurgen Klopp speaks

The performance I can kind of explain, the result not. I never saw a game where one team has …. I’m not sure, four or five no-brainers from a set-piece. We have to finish them off. We should have put the game to bed. The goal we conceded was a big mistake from us [by Joe Gomez]. All the chances they had we gave them, because too often we played the wrong pass.

We had to play three games in six days with a really limited squad. That’s just how it is. Result-wise, we should have showed consistency today with better finishing.

Our next game is Wednesday so it’s like a holiday. I hope a few players will be back. Forest showed fight. It’s the Premier League, they are all good and they all fight. But giving a team six clear-cut chances from set pieces, I’m not sure I should be praising Forest to be honest. They are a great team, Steve is a fantastic manager, but we have to win today. Done. And we didn’t, so credit to Nottingham Forest.

The player of the match Ryan Yates speaks

It’s what we needed. We’ve been putting in good performances in recent weeks and we thoroughly deserved that today. The manager said before the game that we had to get the crowd behind us from the first minute, and we did that. [On Dean Henderson’s save] Unbelievable. It’s what he’s there for! [Is this a turning point?] It’s gotta be. It’s gotta be. If we can beat Liverpool we can beat anyone.

The matchwinner Taiwo Awoniyi speaks

I think I played a good game for my team. We had a plan, to be compact and try to get a goal, and I’m very happy that we won. Liverpool brought me into football, they signed me when I was 18, so it’s an emotional game for me. We have to thank the fans.
