Jurgen Klopp reveals why he liked Raheem Sterling's goal in the Community Shield

Former Liverpool midfielder Raheem Sterling opened the scoring from Manchester City in the FA Community Shield last weekend with the Reds manager, Jurgen Klopp revealing why he really liked the goal.

The goal came after just 11 minutes from a quickly taken set-piece which was lifted over the top of the Liverpool defense to David Silva who flicked it on to Sterling to bundle home. Liverpool, however, equalized in the second half through Joel Matip's header but lost 5-4 on penalties. 

In an interview with Sky Sports ahead of their Premier League opener against Norwich, Klopp spoke on Sterling's goal, "I have to say, I really liked it. It's so difficult to defend against them because they use the space so smartly. And then obviously they adapt a bit to us when they play us.

"They played quite a high number of long balls in behind, which were difficult to defend. But if you have a goalie who can kick it that long, why not do it? It gives us a question to answer for the next game."
