On the Brentford side, Ivan Toney (75th) only briefly gave the hosts hope. “We controlled them as much as we could and we’re happy about that,” Klopp said after the win on broadcaster TNT Sport.

“We have mixed feelings. We lost a few players for whom we don’t know how serious it is,” said Klopp: “It doesn’t look particularly good for anyone.” Diogo Jota, goalscorer Núñez and Curtis Jones had to be replaced, Jota was even carried off on a stretcher Placed.
