We hear from a few of our regular contributors, who give their immediate post-match impressions.
As Klopp’s reaction showed, that was so much more important to Liverpool than rewarding this season. Defeat would have created a neoroses, and maybe a tag of ‘Neverpool’ and ‘loser’. No more.
A huge victory, for reasons beyond the CLhttps://t.co/oolVixwLal

And Neil Atkinson from the Anfield Wrap tries to put the feelings into words.
“Klopp reminds me and you on a regular basis that you should be having a good time doing this.
“That he will politely disagree with one of the most notorious Shanklyism’s that football is more important than life and death.”https://t.co/HjKEwimsZT
