'Super proud' Klopp hails Liverpool spirit after FA Cup win at Arsenal

Klopp praised Liverpool’s toughness after they held Arsenal off to win 2-0 in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday.

Klopp’s team had to hold off a long Arsenal attack at the Emirates Stadium before two goals in the last few minutes gave them a hard-earned win.

In the 80th minute, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s free kick was headed into his own net by Jakub Kiwior of Arsenal. Luis Diaz sealed the win late in extra time.

While Mohamed Salah, Wataru Endo, and Virgil van Dijk were all sick or on international business, Liverpool showed they have the character to win a lot of games this season.

“We got through it in the end.” I’m so glad we won this game. Without a question, Arsenal could have won. Klopp said, “We finished it, and it showed what kind of boys they were.”

“I’m really proud. It was really tough to draw. It was probably the hardest thing we could have gotten.In the first half, it wasn’t easy to enjoy the game. At halftime, we changed a few things. “The second half was when we were really in it. We scored the goals and fought for ninety minutes.”

Liverpool is currently in first place in the Premier League and is chasing four trophies. They also have a League Cup semi-final first game against Fulham this coming Wednesday, so Klopp was glad that there wouldn’t be an FA Cup replay.

If Liverpool wins, they will win their first title since 2020. They are two points ahead of second-placed Aston Villa and five points ahead of fourth-placed Arsenal.

Klopp is glad Liverpool has a break.

So that they don’t have to play Arsenal again, Liverpool will have a break after their game against Fulham until January 21, when they play Bournemouth in the Premier League. “We really wanted to avoid a tie.” “So now I don’t have to decide anything, which is good,” Klopp said.

“The next game is on Wednesday, and then we have a few days off.” You need to take steps to get where we are. Now we’ll have a winter break.” Klopp praised England back Trent Alexander-Arnold for his role in pushing Liverpool forward in the second half.
