"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.
