Liverpool defeated Ajax 1-0 in the Champions League. After the game, Klopp talked about the substitution strategy of the game. He said he was very happy to use up 5 substitutions. This is a very important victory.
"You can see that for the starting trio, this is a very fierce game. They are very difficult. I am very happy to replace them. I have nothing to do with the ability of the three players who came on the bench. Suspect, the game was fierce, and we did a good job defense together."
"Our formation is 4-5-1, which requires all the wing players to participate in the defense. Once you have the ball, you have plenty of room to counterattack, so I think it is very useful to replace some players on the field. meaningful."
"The three players on the field are all in good condition. They have helped the team a lot. Shaqiri did a good job. Takumi Minano's tandem passing between each position is very good. Ruota is a machine and he can play in a pair. One situation brought great trouble to the opponent. It is a pity that we did not expand the score."
"I'm very happy that I can run out of 5 substitutions. Milner is just a little uncomfortable, but then we changed to Rees Williams and faced Ajax's long pass in the final moments, Williams' header. The race for the top is very strong."
