Liverpool fully deserved their 1-0 win over Everton on Monday night, according to manager Jurgen Klopp.

Sadio Mane's injury-time strike proved the difference between the two sides at Goodison Park and the Reds' last-gasp victory saw them move up to second in the Premier League, albeit still six points behind leaders Chelsea.

Everton had enjoyed the better of the first half but the visitors improved after the break and took the bragging rights when Mane reacted quickest after substitute Daniel Sturridge's shot hit the post.

Klopp had no doubts his team were worthy winners on the night.

"Enjoyed is maybe not the right word, it was quite intense and very, very happy after the game," he said. "It was a deserved win in a difficult game. You saw the reaction of our supporters, so obviously they were happy too. It is the best thing you can do on a night like this.

"We did not give a lot of chances away, I can't remember one chance for Everton and whatever you want to do in a football game you need to be ready to respect what an opponent wants to do.

The German had words of praise for all his players after the match, saying it was hard to highlight one particular individual after what was a real team effort from the Reds.
