Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool fans were thrilled to see their team win 4-1 against Luton Town in the Premier League yesterday. The win means Liverpool will remain as the league leaders with 60 points and are four points clear of Manchester City, who have 56 points, and 5 points off Arsenal, who have 55 points. Liverpool suffered many injuries this season, and ahead of the Luton Town game, the team was headed into that game without players like Trent Alexander Arnold, Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, and Darwin Nunez.

Jurgen Klopp was happy with the win and said he will remember this important win. Liverpool were trailing 1-0 in the first half and struggled to break down the Luton Town defense. In the second half, Liverpool looked like a completely different team and scored all four goals in that half. Liverpool turned things around in two minutes when a Van Dijk header and a Cody Gakpo header made it 2-1 to Liverpool in the 58th minute. Luis Diaz, who struggled to score in the first half, scored in the 7th minute to make it 3-1, and Harvey Elliott scored the 4th in the 90th minute.

Klopp spoke after the win and expressed his joy about the three points. Klopp said, "The boys did exceptionally well [it was] one of the best [games] I have seen us play, and I enjoyed it very much. It is all about the boys. They gave themselves a chance. Nobody needed that lesson tonight, but if our crowd believes, this club is able to do special things. It's one of those nights where it will be difficult to stop talking about it. It just wants to come out of me. I'm so happy."

Jurgen Klopp compares this win to the 2019 4-0 win against FC Barcelona in the Champions League

Due to the game's circumstances, Klopp compares this win to the historic 4-0 win against FC Barcelona in the 2019 Champions League semifinal. In that game against Barca, Liverpool also missed key players like Salah and Firmino.

This time, Liverpool was missing a lot of key players and was still amazed to pull a big comeback after losing at first. Klopp said, "I told my team a few months ago I would never use the Barcelona game as an example, but tonight I broke my promise. This is now their Barcelona. Plenty of reasons to give up. Not tonight. I saw only a super group fighting. If you don't limit yourself with bad thoughts, you can fly."
