HE WHISTLES Hello. What’s the approach going to be today? Football. Active, positive,
front-footed football – that’s it. We said that a lot of times, in a game like this
you have to defend with all you have, otherwise you get punished. You have to attack with all you have,
otherwise you don’t get anything. – Do you want these for Sky?
– Yes, please. There you go, mate. Good man, thanks very much. Best keeper in the world! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE OK, let’s go, come on. Oh!

Sean Cox and his family here today, please give them a very warm welcome, as
Sean’s wife Martina joins me here pitchside. How has he enjoyed today so far? He’s absolutely loving it, he’s ecstatic
up there, really enjoying it, getting into the thick of it. It’s great to see. It’s a huge boost for him. Can you update us on his condition? He’s doing well, he’s making improvements, it’s a slow process
but it’s very encouraging, he’s fighting really hard and he’s
determined, which is great and really positive. Wonderful, thank you very much indeed. Come on, lads! Come on, come on! Come on! Yesss! ♫ Liiiiverpool, Liiiiverpool ♫ Liiiiverpool, Liiiiverpool. ♫ Liverpool, Liverpool, top of the league! Liverpool, top of the league! Liverpool, Liverpool, top of the league! CROWD ROARS Liverpool, top of the league! Liverpool, Liverpool, top of the league! Bobby! Well, Robbo, congratulations, what a result. Yeah, massive for us, a big game
against our closest rivals last year, obviously both of us were
in a league of our own then, it looks like there’s gonna be a couple others
sniffing around this year, but I still believe if you finish
above Man City you’ll get the title. Say hi to Sean. Hi, you OK? Enjoy the game? Yeah, he’s coming every week now! Our lucky charm! Joe, how are you? Say hi to Sean. Nice to meet you. The Sean hug has replaced the Klopp hug! You OK? You OK? Could I hand you that? Yes, here with Jordan Henderson,
the man whose assist sealed that victory. We’ll get to your assist shortly, but how does
big that feel to be nine points clear? Yes, it is November, but is it significant? We always knew it was a big game,
City are a fantastic team, we knew the importance of the game, we wanted to go out and put on
a good performance, win the game. Good to see you. Hi. Well, Jürgen, you spoke about it
in your programme notes, you were gonna have to be brave
to get anything from the game, courage in bucketloads
from your team out there. LAUGHING: Yeah. That was the plan and the idea, and it’s pretty
much the only way how we can do it. You saw in the last 15 minutes, in the moment
when City get control of the game then it’s like it is, it’s difficult. OK, we were obviously tired then, a couple of players felt a little bit of a cold,
Hendo, Bobby at half-time, it was really difficult, and it was clear
at one point we had to make changes, then it’s difficult to adapt
and they get the momentum, score that goal, and then
they had a few more moments. But come on, you cannot win against City
with no dangerous moments, their quality is too high.
I’m completely fine with what we did, we did it our way and I liked that a lot. Given the fans a brilliant Sunday night,
haven’t you? Welcome! Inside Anfield. Are you doing something? No, this is like behind the scenes,
you wave to the camera. These are my friends from Los Angeles. – It’s been a long day.
– You picked a good game though! – Awesome game.
– Man of the match.
