That victory came just four days after the Reds completed a 5-1 aggregate win over Premier League champions-elect Manchester City in Europe.

And that ‘heavy metal’ style of football that Klopp so loves comes about in one way: being angry.

Mane said his boss fires his players up full of fury so they can perform their best – and it works.

He said: “Before the game [Klopp] said we have to [show] our quality and be angry because every game is important.

“After the City game, you have to concentrate more because you usually know how it [can go].

“He tried to motivate us like usually and in the end everybody was in the right place at the right time to win every ball.

“We played well and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved.”

Red-hot Mo Salah netted his 30th Premier League goal of the season, with Roberto Firmino and Mane adding the extras.

And Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain said Salah’s goal – an uncharacteristic header – was actually unexpected.

He said: “The finish from Mo was a bit of an unusual one for him and one that maybe took everyone by surprise.

“It proves that he can do that. I think I can remember him scoring one away at Leicester earlier in the season and that surprised me at the back post, seeing the little man get up and score a header.”
