Klopp’s reaction on the status of Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson after the duo were substituted alongside Mo Salah in the Reds’ Champions League tie at the Estadio Metropolitano.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “I had no problem with the result. I saw so many happy faces from Atletico tonight, I get that because it’s a big win, but it’s not over yet. That’s the only thing I feel.

“The crowd wanted to help their team tonight. That makes it a very emotional game.

“Emotions are important. Tonight they were obviously completely on the side of Atletico but I am really looking forward to the second leg.”

Atletico boss Diego Simeone: “The best side in the world came here and we beat them.

“But it’s only one game down, one to go. Liverpool had their chances. They were dangerous, they’ve got good players all over the pitch.”
