Although the significance of his decision to return to France was played down at the time, Houllier would later try to bring him back as he could not establish the same trust with his replacements. His 2001 success was never replicated.

For Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri, the Liverpool squad remain focused and relaxed on the title race with Manchester City, with the supporters more nervous than the players.

“Jordan Henderson didn't start against United or James Milner because of injury, but if you see who is talking in our dressing room before a game when the music is loud and people are shouting it is Milly and Hendo. Now Virgil starts, even Alisson throws in a few words. It is always the same players.

We’ve played three times in a row now against a team with five at the back, but all of them organised it differently. That makes it pretty difficult. Today for example, Newcastle had two strikers but they were pretty deep and what we did in the first half, we protected them with the two sixes instead of with the two centre-halves, so that means they cut off four players. We had six players offensively, that’s why we didn’t win the balls back as quick as we should. That’s football. If you are 2-0 up then you have to control the game, that’s how it always is. In the past we became, I wouldn’t say sloppy, but we lost concentration. That doesn’t help, obviously. Now we are much more awake, we control it in a better way, we switch sides, we still prepare and create – not as many as maybe would be possible, but still enough – and we score goals. If you are Newcastle and you come here and are three-nil down, that is not a trigger for a big fightback. We were too strong for that today and it then makes life a bit easier for these few seconds or minutes in the game, but that’s all. Until we were there, it was really intense and we had to put in everything we’ve got.

We had five players on the pitch with their first start of the whole season so I’m really happy that they had the game because now they are really back. It’s always a bit like this; they don’t start and after three or four weeks you think, ‘OK, now they don’t have rhythm.’ They don’t have rhythm but in the game they got the rhythm and in the moment when we learned enough from the game we controlled it much better. [We were] 1-0 up and could have scored the second; hit the crossbar; Shaq completely alone in the box, maybe you’ll have to ask him why he didn’t shoot in that situation. Then they scored a goal after the free-kick, which is of course an unlucky situation because neither the foul nor the goal itself was clear. You can discuss both situations; that’s not too cool and doesn’t feel too well. Then it’s 1-1 and they have the momentum in the game, scoring one and being back. I don’t think our reaction was bad but then Eden Hazard came and scored a wonderful goal. We didn’t have enough time to strike back. That’s the story of the game.

Jurgen Klopp has come in for criticism on Twitter after suggesting strong winds made it difficult for Liverpool in their 2-1 FA Cup defeat by Wolves. 

It was difficult. It is always difficult. I liked the start offensively, but I didn’t like the start defensively – the protection was not as it should have been. We were not as compact as we should have been. They had the first corner, half-counters and stuff like that, so it looked like kind of an open game. When we had the ball, after the first 15 minutes, we were good – one-twos, good finishes. We lost the formation a little bit, we were too wide offensively. If we could play the ball in behind it was good, but if they could clear it with a header then we were not there to win the ball back formation-wise. 1-0, a fantastic goal, quick in mind; again it was off a set-piece, which is brilliant. A fantastic cross and then a good reaction from pretty much everybody in the box, then a fantastic finish from Dejan. I was really happy about half-time [so that] we could adjust a few things and go back to the way we actually wanted to play. That made life easier, especially after we scored with the penalty in minute 47 – pretty early in the second half. Then we controlled the game, which was good. We scored wonderful goals again, set-pieces fantastic. Even Ali could show – apart from all his football-play skills – what his actual job is and saves the clean sheet. A pretty perfect day for us; not a perfect performance, but a really good performance. Result-wise and a lot of parts of the performance, really good.
