POST-MATCH COMMENTS

“We had the bigger chances, but now we have to play again. West Ham have good quality in their team and play well in the league. We tried everything – you need a bit of luck. I was pleased with the whole team. Steven Caulker played for the first time in his position in defence and did well, but I cannot fault anyone, they tried and gave all. We played much better than we did at West Ham [in the league], but we didn’t score so it is not over. The players we changed had the day off today so hopefully nothing happened to them,” – Jürgen Klopp, Liverpool FC manager

“They had a few moments, we had a few moments. They were better in the second half – they could run more and were better at winning the second balls so it is a great result for us. We lacked that kind of quality we normally have in the last third of the pitch, so overall I am happy with the result. When you make two subs in the first half your hands are tied in the second half. It limited our options and we had to wait to make a third substitution. Kouyate should be OK for Tuesday hopefully,” – Slaven Bilic, West Ham United FC manager
