Premier League champions Liverpool finished the league on Sunday with a 3-1 win over Newcastle United. The Reds have collected a total of 99 points in the league, which is the second-highest in the history of the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp was delighted to see his side grabbing the win despite going down 1-0 after 27 seconds.
Dwight Gayle opened the score in the 1st minute after Jonjo Shelvey’s free-kick found the striker. Virgil van Dijk then equalised for the visitors with a header before Divock Origi scored with a curling effort to make it 2-1. Sadio Mane finished the score in the second half after the Senegal forward came off the bench.
“We played an incredible game, not a perfect game,” said Klopp after the game. “We made so many changes after a long time of playing with similar line-ups. It’s not fair to judge (players who came in) because they need to get used to each other’s games.”
“We really worked in the game and got better and better and better even before the changes. But the changes helped massively. I liked the game. It’s far away from being perfect but over the season we did not just win games when everything was perfect, we won a lot of difficult games too.”
