We take a look at two mistakes Jurgen Klopp avoided in the game.
1. Using a Weak Squad: Klopp made three changes to the team that faced Leeds on Sunday.The German tactician started his best players and it proved to be a wise decision as they began the game as the better side. Despite falling behind late in the first half, they dug deep and got the victory.
2. Making Late Substitutions: Klopp brought on Sadio Mane for Divock Origi early in the second half as the Reds pushed for the winner. The Senegalese introduction changed the game and proved to be a wise decision.
