A decision that has paid off was the choice to start the transfer deadline day to sign Diaz, who responded to fans on social media after opening his Anfield account.
And the manager also explained why he didn’t start Trent Alexander-Arnold in the win.

Klopp’s mid-half message

“But midway through, it’s not like we said we had to change this, this and this,” Klopp told club website.
Diaz thanks fans
