In his post-match interview, Klopp said the atmosphere was the best they had describing it as really special.
“Everybody was really looking forward to this football festival, to this game, and I think nobody leaves this place today with any kind of disappointment because I think all of our dreams were fulfilled today, atmosphere-wise.
“That was, for sure, the best 12.30 pm atmosphere we had. It was pretty special, really special. How the game was as well, pretty special.
He also praised the performance of defenders Virgil Van Dijk, Joel Matip, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kostas Tsimikasfor their impact in the game.
