    Klopp delightful over Liverpool win in Maribor

    Jurgen Klopp want his side to use the Chmpions League as a boos ahead of Tottenham clash

    Lfc rumourLiverpool came out of their host with an excellent victory on Tuesday night, two goals each from Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah and each one from Coutinho, Oxlade Chamberlain and Alexander Arnold sees them topping Group E in a head to head-goal difference.

    Meanwhile, once group leader Sevilla lost 5-1 to Spartak Moscow in Russian to stay third in the group with four points.

    Liverpool have had it tough in recent games converting more of their chances to goals and boss Jurrgen Klopp is delighted his team broke out the jinx in style.

    Klopp said: "It will give the players a lot of confidence," said the Liverpool boss, whose side face Tottenham on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League. "I was told about the record after the game and I didn't know about it.

    "The wonderful history of this club can feel like a back-pack at times so it is nice to write our own good piece of the history. It will be difficult to beat that record. It is quite rare to win 7-0 but it showed we did unbelievably well.

    "Maribor were quite confident before the game for different reasons. We could read the papers over here because my assistant speaks the language and he said they were positive because no English team had won in Maribor (in the Champions League).

    "The boys deserved that. The only problem recently was how to explain why we didn't win. That has been the most difficult thing about our recent games.

    "When you don't score it is a challenge to stay confident but we will try to use this result now.

    "The next game is Tottenham so it's pretty likely it will not be a similar result. We have five days to recover and prepare and we are looking forward to it."

    Lfc rumourKlopp, who pre-match admitted he had been impressed with £35m Deadline Day signing Oxlade-Chamberlain in recent days, felt the goal would be hugely beneficial to the England international.

    "It will open his chest. It will help him a lot. He could have scored two," he added. "It was nice from Daniel (Sturridge) how he made this goal, really cool."

    Maribor coach Darko Milanic, who had a horrendous 32 days in charge of Leeds in 2014, admitted his side just did not cope well with the early pressure.

    "The boys didn't look like themselves and after 20 minutes we had three goals against," he said. "It was very difficult for the players."
    and will be fit to play before next month.
