Jurgen Klopp hailed his Liverpool side after the difficult 1-0 win against Swansea early on Sunday.
James Milner scored the only goal from the penalty spot after Neil Taylor fouled Jordon Ibe inside the box. Klopp couldn’t bear to watch the penalty being taken. Liverpool are now six points off Manchester City, the league leaders.
“It was really difficult for both teams, the wind was in the stadium more than the stands,” Klopp told BBC Sport.
“Swansea defended very well. They had some problems in the last few games but they were more compact today and showed respect for our last few games.
“We made this one goal. It is different [to 4-1 win over Man City] but to get results in a row you have to fight for them. I am proud of the lads. It is a good result in difficult circumstances.
“They did not have that big chances. We defended really well. What Jordon Ibe did in tactical sense with his defending was a big step for him and us.”
