Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, insists he has no issues with hard-fought wins as the Reds bid to end their 29-year-long league title drought.
Klopp’s men picked up a nail-biting 4-3 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon to maintain their four-point advantage at the top of the Premier League table.
4-3. Biggest win of the season. #LFC showing a side to them we haven’t season much this season. Incredible character and resilience. A true sign of the progress made under Klopp in the past 18 months.

Roy Hodgson’s Palace gave the league leaders a real run for their money, but the German coach says he is happy as long as his side are bagging the maximum spoils.
“I don’t know how many ways there are to win a football game but we have had pretty much a few of them already,” he said, as quoted by The Telegraph.
“Maybe there’ll be a game when we score early, then a second goal and the opponent loses confidence and we can win 5-0 after 70 minutes. We only want to win games and I know we are a really good football team but that is not enough.”
“It is really not enough to be a good or a fantastic or even a world-class football team because we are playing in a competition with a couple of world-class football teams and hundreds of fantastic football teams.”

“We have to make sure that we just fight in each game like it’s the last game and the boys do that. I’m completely fine with 4-3,” he concluded.
Liverpool’s next Premier League commitment sees them welcome Leicester City to Anfield on Wednesday night.
