Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, was pleased with his side's overall performance in the win over Atalanta. 
"We defended Atalanta on an incredibly high level and played ourselves top football and scored the goals," Klopp said.
"That’s how it looks. We scored five goals, could have scored maybe two or three more, I don’t know. But Alisson had to make three world-class saves as well.

"So, you see how big the threat is if you let them do what they are good in. The overall performance of my team tonight was really good, that’s why we won the game. The result is not that important, we only wanted to win."
