Stoke vs. Liverpool: Match Reaction

Coutinho equalised with 20 minutes remaining when he shot through a crowded penalty area, and three minutes later, Firmino's superb lob put Liverpool ahead.

"I thought we could have played much better than we did but it was clear that we want to bring them, half-an-hour absolutely makes sense and if it is then 0-0, they can decide the game".

"Simon Mignolet, what a save".

And it's a performance that didn't go unnoticed by Reds supporters on Twitter, who were full of praise for their goalkeeper after his sensational efforts at the bet365 Stadium...

However, alongside Coutinho on the bench were Roberto Firmino (rested) and Daniel Sturridge, meaning teenagers Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander Arnold would start, with Divock Origi leading the line.

Jurgen Klopp labelled Simon Mignolet's save from Saido Berahino in Liverpool's come-from-behind victory over Stoke as "one of the best saves he had ever seen" - but do you agree with the Reds boss?

Liverpool now find themselves nine points clear of fifth place after playing two games more than closest challengers Arsenal and Manchester United, and Klopp believes that his side's latest three-point haul was one of the biggest in his time in charge. He continued to label the Liverpool fans who lit flares in the away end "a disgrace" and claimed that he has lost respect for the club as the smoke blocked the goalkeeper's vision, allowing Firmino to score the winning goal.

On Sunday morning, "Fresh Express" was trending on Twitter, with a few users none too pleased about this distressing bit of news. A bag of salad mix went a little heavier on the "mix" than the "salad", reports CNN .

"This reaction is what you need to be successful, " Klopp said.

Having appeared out of sorts in the first half without two of its most talented attacking players, Liverpool was a different side after Coutinho and Firmino were introduced at the break.

"Philippe Coutinho lost three kilos in the past three days, which some people wish - but for a professional footballer it's not too cool".

"I knew we had to get through this period with a decent return - we haven't quite managed that".

"We've come through a tough period of fixtures".

Liverpool have won more points from losing positions than any other Premier League team this season (18).

While Klopp explained that he left out Firmino because he "felt the intensity of last few weeks", it was a risk in the circumstances since Coutinho was not at 100%.
