Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was not concerned by his side's lack of firepower in their 1-0 Europa League win against Augsburg, as he joked his team were saving all their goals for Sunday's Capital One Cup final against Manchester City.

James Milner's fifth-minute penalty proved decisive but despite creating a number of chances it was far from convincing.

However, the job was completed, just, without too much damage - and the need for energy-sapping extra-time - to allow Jurgen Klopp and his players to concentrate on Sunday's Capital One Cup final against Manchester City.

Aside from the result the real positive was another 65 minutes in the bank for Daniel Sturridge, making his third consecutive start for the first time since last March, who looked Liverpool's most dangerous player and will be the key man again at Wembley.

When asked whether he was worried by his side's failure to take their numerous chances, Klopp offered this response to BT Sport.

"We keep them for the final, it's good preparation for the final now we know our way to goal!

"I'm not frustrated, football is like this. You have to create chances and we have the quality to score goals, everybody could see this.

"They had brilliant goalkeeping and sometimes the amount of luck you need. We could have done better but that's all. We had six or seven really, really good chances and that's enough. In another game, we will score goals for sure."

Earlier, Klopp showed he was a gentleman as he helped BT Sport reporter Natalie Quirk into position for her pre-match interview with the Liverpool boss.
