Goalkeeper Mickael Roche scored the most hilarious own goal for Tahiti outfit AS Tefana's in an Oceania Champions League encounter against Nadi FA.

Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was impressed by left-back Alberto Moreno's performance in their 4-1 win over Stoke City on Sunday.

The Spain international has made 28 starts in all competitions so far this campaign and his long-range effort opened the scoring against the Potters at Anfield.

"I would say Alberto had his strongest performance since I've been here," Klopp said of the 23-year-old.

"The goal gave him confidence, but he was concentrated, good in defence, very good in our build-up and changed positions, played in the half-space and so that was good."

The German manager included fringe players such as Kevin Stewart and Sheyi Ojo in his starting line-up against Stoke and was thrilled with his team's overall performance on the day.

"To be honest, the whole game was good against a really difficult side to play," he added. "For the second time, they changed their style of play against us.

"When we played the [League Cup] semi-final at Stoke, the first half they played football. We had a few good pressing moments and in the second half they changed it.

"Then when they came here, it was a long-ball festival. Today, with the wind and Peter Crouch, it was really difficult, but the big experience of Kolo [Toure] and Martin [Skrtel] ruled it in the end.

"They had big passion and good positioning in their defending. What we did with the ball in our build-up was really good for a side that had never played together before- it was brilliant, to be honest."
