Liverpool deserved to get all the three points in the fiercely contested Merseyside derby, according to Jurgen Klopp.
Goals from Mane, Coutinho and Origi won the game for the Reds in front of their home fans at Anfield.
“The boys did everything they could to show the power of Anfield, I think it was well deserved,” said Klopp, who is the first Liverpool manager to win his first three league derbies.
“We played good football and we coped well. They tried to play the system which they played against Man City, when they won 4-0, that’s the first sign of respect.
“We had to defend at the end and our organisation was not that good, but we defended with passion and could have had one or two more clear counter attacks, but all good.
“Under the circumstances it was a really good game and we did the job we had to do.”
