There was no sugar coating just how important all three points were for Liverpool against Brentford and while the Reds weren’t at their fluid best, three goals made for three points.
For the first time in exactly one month, Liverpool were back at Anfield for a Premier League match aiming to end a three-game run without a win in the topflight.
And after dominating possession and territory, the Reds made their pressure count three times over to provide a welcome injection of confidence heading into another all-important cup game.
And Alisson definitely enjoyed the view!
A delicious ball looped over and into the path of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was begging to be finished and the No. 15 did just that for only his second goal of the season.
A knock to his ankle would prove to be a sour point as it forced his substitution just moments after creating a valuable buffer for Liverpool.
Selflessly, the No. 9 put it on a plate for the now 27-year-old who certainly enjoyed adding to his tally at the Kop end.
Klopp showed plenty of emotion after the final whistle as he gave the Kop his famous fist pumps, showing just how significant games like these are to the bigger picture.
It all made for smiles all around after the final whistle!
