‘It’s all about the result,’ he told Sky Sports. ‘It was a big fight. We won three dirty points, and I’m fine with that if that’s what it takes to try to get back on track.
‘We had very good moments where we should have done better offensively. Defensively the whole game was really good.
‘I didn’t like the start; we weren’t active enough. But we improved a lot and defended well, and that was the main target today.

Klopp added: ‘There were a lot of really good football moments. The goal we scored was beautiful.
‘I thought the goalie would have saved it but in the end the ball goes in, which was important for us. We got the three points, and everything was fine.
‘It’s been hard for the team, but there was a lot of good news tonight and, most important, we got the three points. We want to go into the [international] break with a positive feeling and we have it.’
