Klopp's men play away on Saturday against Tottenham who had nine players involved on the final weekend of the World Cup, less than a month before the start of their Premier League campaign. "But it's an opinion". So now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again, and see if we can do so.
Instead, their tenancy at Wembley continued with a deserved defeat inflicted by goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino as Liverpool ran riot on the counter-attack to maintain their flawless start to the season. "We have seen that we can do it", Klopp said.
"So I'm really happy about the performance and proud of the performance because the boys came back Wednesday and Thursday, we trained yesterday and then playing our football in that way, that's really nice for a manager". We have to do that, to rotate.
Tottenham had their first attempt on goal in the 27th minute, but a free-kick from Christian Eriksen was not strong enough to get the better of Alisson.
"We used the players who had the longest preseason, apart from Bobby [Roberto Firmino] who came pretty late". The others all had at least three weeks.
"Today, we had 85 brilliant minutes and then unfortunately we didn't finish the game off".

Adam Lallana will miss Liverpool's trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday due to injury, but Simon Mignolet is fit to take his place in the matchday squad.
"It was a kind of a wake-up call, to be honest", Klopp said.
"It was a very good performance, maybe our best against Tottenham in all the years since I'm here, but I imagine only five per cent less and probably we would have lost". 'These sorts of games are the ones he would have wanted to play in. The plan was - and still is - that he will make us better.
"When Lucas Moura hit the post [at 1-0 in the second half] it was the key moment to get the confidence that the team needed in this type of game".
Liverpool also remain in talks with former Manchester United coach Jack Robinson about becoming an assistant goalkeeping coach at the club, sources have told ESPN FC.
