Jurgen Klopp has revealed his role in Alisson’s “world class” late winner against West Brom: not telling the Liverpool goalkeeper to head back to his own box.

The Reds goalkeeper kept his team’s hopes of Champions League qualification on track as he headed in a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner to make it 2-1 in injury time at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

In doing so, the Brazilian became the first goalkeeper in the club’s 129-year history to find the back of the net in a competitive fixture.

But, when asked if he had called for his No.1 to go up for his big moment, Klopp replied: “No, I looked at the corner. I don’t exactly know. I saw Ali starting [to go up]. 

“My part of the goal is that I didn’t shout, ‘Stay back!’ I just let him run. 

“The last minute of the game, nobody has to ask usually a ‘keeper to go in the opposite box when you have to win, which we obviously had to.
