Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says that he is "completely happy" with his side after the Reds produced a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed his happiness following the club's slender 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Premier League this afternoon.

The Reds had appeared frustrated by Frank de Boer's men for much of the contest at Anfield, until Sadio Mane struck in the second half in order to hand Klopp his first win of the new season.

"It was a hard job. I have no idea how much we had the ball but it was a lot. We had moments in the first half but had to be more patient because they were deep," said Klopp, according to Sky Sports News.

"We didn't score but we didn't give counter-attacks away. Second half we did it better, the first part was really good. We were really awake and defended really well and I loved the goal because it was not a clear situation. It was a counter-pressing situation. We had other chances but I am completely happy with how we did the job today.

"Anfield helps a lot I think today it was the difference."

Liverpool have so far amassed four points from their opening two games of the new campaign.
