Klopp doffed his face cap and bowed briefly for the midfielder before they both hugged each other after the game.
"They played brave football. Unbelievable individual performances from the kids and the adults as well," said Klopp.
"Adam Lallana – what a game, unbelievable. Joe Gomez – organising the whole defence for maybe the first time in his life.
"Sensational game and a sensational goal from a Scouser – who could ask for more? You cannot perform like the boys performed if you think you should not perform in that team.
"They all think like that. I am so happy they all showed up tonight. The only thing I didn’t want was a draw. We had to take some risks and it paid off."
