Jurgen Klopp's team lost to Manchester City 4:1. This was an important match for Liverpool, considering that every point plays an important role for them in the fight for the top 4. However, today's performance of Liverpool does not give optimism that they will succeed in their intentions.
Jurgen Klopp emphasized at the pre-conference that his team had the initiative at the beginning, but then the collapse happened. "The first half was one we've seen a few times when we've played here. City always have more possession, but we had spells.
We played calm, composed and caused them problems. We scored a wonderful goal, had another big moment but concede. It was unlucky how the ball went through [Andy] Robertson 's legs and they finish it off but coming out after half time and conceding two quick goals broke everything down.
The goals, how we conceded is difficult to accept - we didn't put in a challenge for either. That's absolutely not acceptable to be honest. City completely in control after that and we were open and they could do whatever they wanted, we were lucky they were not in a greedy mood.
That they only scored one more goal is, well, thank you. It could've been different and that's really bad news for us. In the end, we had moments but in general how we lost everything, unacceptable."-Klopp said, as quoted by mirror.co.uk
Jurgen Klopp on his team's performance
Jurgen Klopp was not satisfied with the performance of most of the players "3-1 down is difficult here but there was nothing more there, four-ish players had an OK game and the rest were somewhere I don't know.
Three days and we play again against another strong team. Tomorrow is a big day for us because we have to work with what we saw today because we see it more often now. It speaks for itself that we are frustrated. We know what we can do and when we don't do it and lose the game, everybody is frustrated."
