Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that their semi-final tie against Villarreal in the Champions League is not over despite the result in the first leg.

Klopp’s Liverpool got the better of Villarreal 2-0 at Anfield in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final tie on Wednesday evening.

An own goal from Pervis Estupinan saw the Reds take the lead in the 53nd minute, and Sadio Mane made it 2-0 just two minutes later.

Liverpool are rated at 15/2 on Betfair to win the second leg 2-0.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official website: “The full work. Nothing happened yet, that’s how it is. For me, it’s the best example, you play a game and it’s 2-0 at half-time [then] you have to be completely on alert. 

“You have to be 100 per cent in the right mood, you have to play the second half like you played the first half. 

“There is nothing to defend [and] if you do that you [lose] immediately all the advantages you might have had before. We know we go there and it will be a tricky atmosphere for us and different from tonight. 

“Their players, you saw it tonight, they fight with all they have and what I like [is] that everybody could see that we fought with all we have. It’s always the same. 

“If they beat us with a result that brings them to the final, then they deserve it and if not then we deserve it. That’s how the competition is. 

“We played a really good game and now in five days we will play again and we have to make sure that we are ready.”
