Jurgen Klopp refused to take credit for the double substitution that won Liverpool the game against West Ham.

With the Reds level at 1-1 inside the 15 minutes at Anfield, Klopp brought on Xherdan Shaqiri and Diogo Jota before the former assisted the latter for the winning goal against the Hammers.

It's Jota's fourth goal for the Reds since moving from Wolves for an initial £41million in September and his third in a week after strikes against Sheffield United and FC Midtjylland.

Klopp, though, did not want the praise for changing the game with the decision to bring on the two players who combined for the all-important second.

"It is not too difficult a decision to bring Diogo and Shaq on because they have trained exceptionally and are in great shape," Klopp said.

"Yes, Diogo! He is at the moment, [showing he is] a good player. We are really happy that we could sign Diogo.

"It's win-win, we can help him and he can help us.”

Asked about the character of his side after once more edging a tight and hard-fought game, Klopp added: "I cannot convince this group to fight if they are not fighters.

"It's always been easy with this team to show them the right path and know that they will follow it.

"These boys, the basis for what we do is the character of them. It is always easy with this team.

"We show them the right path, they do it. They don't have to be in the best shape, but if we can find a way to help, we help."
