Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was satisfied with the 5-1 win over 10-man Hull but was still slightly disappointed the performance fizzled out in the second half.

"The first half was brilliant, that was how football should be if you are able to do it," Klopp said.

"In the first few minutes you could really see how strong we could be in counter-attacks.

"I was a little bit surprised of the speed and power of these situations.

"The most impressive thing today was the counter-pressing: I think it was the best game we played in counter-pressing until now.

"Second half was not as exciting, still good but not at 100 per cent of concentration.

"I don't want to criticise but I think we could have done better in the second half.

"It was good, but not as good as it could have been.

"We have a lot of things to improve and one is that if you are brilliant you need to be brilliant for 95 minutes."

Pep Guardiola: Aguero can be 'better'

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed that he wants to make star striker Sergio Aguero a better player after the Argentinian returned from suspension with two goals in a 3-1 victory over Swansea.

City made it a perfect six Premier League wins from six under Guardiola after Aguero scored in each half - including a 65th-minute penalty after Michael van der Hoorn brought down Kevin de Bruyne.

"Congratulations to him (Aguero), especially for his first goal," Guardiola said. "I am so happy for him, but he knows I want more.

"He can play better, he can make other things that are going to help us.

"In the box, he is going to help us a lot. His first control for the opening goal was outstanding, but I want to help him be a better player."
