FA Cup: Klopp Reacts After Liverpool Beat Aston Villa

Liverpool Coach Jurgen Klopp has reached to the club’s 4-1 victory over Aston Villa in the FA Cup 3rd round.

Saido Mane opened the scoring in the fourth minutes before Barry restored parity for Aston Villa just before halftime to end the half 1-1.

Mane, Wijnaldum and Salah completed the rout in the second half.

Aston Villa fielded U-23 and U-18 players as ten first team players have been battling with Covid-19.

“The kids of Villa did really well,” Klopp told reporters. “It was a tricky one. I’ve never before had this kind of challenge in my life, that you have no idea who you’re playing against – absolutely no idea.”

“You prepare a meeting and then you can throw all the preparation, all the videos in the bin and then you have to start new. That’s football and academy players are good players”.

“Last year we played here with our kids and they gave Villa a proper game as well. That’s just how it is. These young kids can all play football and if you don’t play well against them you have problems.”

Liverpool return to Premier League action on January 17 with a clash against Manchester United.
