Jurgen Klopp is adamant the finger should not be pointed at Naby Keita for any Liverpool failings in their dramatic Champions League win at Atletico Madrid.

The Reds threw away a 2-0 lead before winning 3-2 through Mohamed Salah's 78th-minute penalty in the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday.

Keita, who had scored Liverpool's second goal, was partly at fault in the build-up to both of Antoine Griezmann's goals for Atletico before being substituted at half-time.

But Klopp believes the Reds' problems before the break were more nuanced than just concerning one player.

"First and foremost, it was nothing to do with Naby – we just had to defend the right side a bit better," said the Reds boss.

"We were a bit too wide, but Naby scored a goal and stuff like this and I spoke to him already.

"It is really important to me that nobody thinks we played the first half – or the second part of the first half – because of Naby. Not at all.

"He is in really good shape, but he played three games for Guinea there and the last Premier League game 90 minutes and then today.

"As I said, 45 minutes I think was absolutely right."

Klopp believes the half-time period was crucial in feeding fresh tactical information to his players.

And he added: "What I started with, first and foremost, I was really positive because we knew much more about them than we did before the game; we know exactly where the spaces are, where we have to play, we just didn’t do it and we showed two situations.

"We had too many easy passes around the formation and not in or through the formation.

"It was clear when it went 2-2 I never expected that they would now start chasing us with the ball. They turned the game in exactly the way they wanted to play from the beginning, defending in the right spaces, winning the ball and go for it.

"They didn’t change, so we had to go back to what we actually wanted from the beginning. That’s what we did."
