Liverpool secured a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace at home.
The Reds have secured the top position in the Premier League table and are continuing their unbeaten record so far this season.
Jurgen Klopp in an exclusive interview explains why the game was demanding.
Klopp told Sky Sports: “It is one of the most hard-fought 3-0s ever. We had to give everything.
“Hard but fair challenges. Physicality was immense and we had to be ready.
“The chips in behind our full-back gave us trouble. The longer it went they used that more and more. We had to run.
“Wednesday/Saturday rhythm is really hard. We scored wonderful goals and used our set-pieces. It is massive in games like this. These are the games you have to win, when you are not brilliant.
Summer signing Ibrahim Konate made his debut for the Reds who has been particularly outstanding in defence.
The manager said: “You can see he is incredibly talented. The potential is outstanding.
“He is used to winning challenges easy. He is young and he played a really good game. Massive. First home game for him.”
