Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was all smiles again as his side beat Bournemouth 9-0 at Anfield in the Premier League matchday 4 fixture. The manager said his side showed what they are all about, but there is still plenty of room for improvement.

The Reds produced an impressive attacking display in L4, with Roberto Firmino and Luis Diaz scoring twice each, while Harvey Elliott, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Fabio Carvalho also scored, plus an own goal from Chris Mepham.

According to the German manager, his side needed to prove a point to themselves after a short pre-season with mixed results; good performances and less good performances, completely normal for a pre-season, having a peak so early in the season and playing really well [against City] and then going down for some reason.

Klopp's words

"We are not happy with the way we played; we had good moments in almost every game. We showed things we are strong in and things we have to improve on, and that's what we had to do today, but you can't make a list and take them all away step by step," he said.

"You just have to give the right direction to the game and that's why I was so pleased with the start today. We didn't hesitate, we didn't hold anything back, we just got into the game, put them under pressure, had the battles in the right areas of the box, around the box, bodies in the box, second ball situations, go again, and that sort of thing," he added.
