Jurgen Klорр аddressed the mediа аfter Liverрооl‘s раinful defeаt tо Mаnсhester United. He сlаimed thаt his side shоuld hаve beаten Mаnсhester United оn Mоndаy night, desрite аdmitting thаt his сlаim might ‘sоund ridiсulоus’. The Reds’ winless stаrt tо the Рremier Leаgue seаsоn соntinued аt Оld Trаffоrd аs Erik ten Hаg’s side rаn оut 2-1 winners.
Jurgen Klopp spoke at length to Sky Sports after yesterday’s loss. He said:
“They were really aggressive in the beginning, it was clear what will happen. Also they were more aggressive than us and they hit the post early on. They scored the goal and we took over and played the game we wanted to play. We were unlucky with situations against an opponent like United, it would have been helpful to score and go 1-1 at half time.”
“The second goal does not help then it was a hectic game after our goal, definitely not the result we wanted. When we calmed down we have extreme number of shots for an away game at United. We should use more of these moments, the second half David de Gea made a fantastic save. If you score then the game turns then we did not have enough time or power in the end.”
“When you are in a game like this fighting, these guys talk to each other and on the pitch it is a different conversation. It was not a perfect performance, it was clear United would get out of the blocks but we were not 100 per cent ready. We had to keep chasing the game and that is not what you want to do. It makes it difficult with their counter-attacking threat. The second goal is hard to take, it was offside, but we have to work with it.”
“We are in a tricky situation injury wise. We got through the week with 14, 15 senior players available. Now have to make sure they don’t get injured. I know we should have won this game, I know it sounds ridiculous but that is how I saw it. I am concerned about our situation, but that is how it is. We prepare for Bournemouth and Newcastle now.”
