Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has backed his team’s controversial 2-1 Premier League win over Newcastle on Wednesday.
He also named youngster, Harvey Elliott as ‘the best player on the pitch’ during the dramatic victory.
The referee added 5 minutes of stoppage time but waited until the 99th, after Liverpool had gotten the win, to end the game, generating a lot of comments on social media.
The Red looked set to drop at least two points at home to Newcastle after new £60m striker Alexander Isak put the visitors ahead shortly before half-time.
“This is the best way to win a football game. I think that we scored after 90+8 is the perfect response. I’m really happy about that,” Klopp told reporters after the match.
On Elliott and Carvalho, Klopp added: “Harvey was the best player on the pitch, without a shadow of a doubt. It was nice to see him pick up from where he was before the bad injury.
“Fabio, what a boy. What a player. I am pretty sure he will want to have that feeling more often and I am pretty sure if he keeps working, he will have it more.”
