After the defeat to Burnley, Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports: “We lost a game that is very hard to lose, but we did it. That’s my fault – to make the right decisions, I need to make sure my boys have the right feelings. But that didn’t work out.
When things don’t work, it’s always my fault. If stuff goes well, it’s because of the players. If we don’t beat our enemies, that’s up to me. That’s the same for all executives.
At the moment our decision-making is our concern. We don’t score the first one, which makes things challenging. We have to focus on this.
A free-scoring side or team, I never thought of us. We have to do a lot of things right to be in our place, but it doesn’t happen at the moment. It’s not the first thing that happens in football, and it’s not going to be the last. It’s not that we don’t create chances because we don’t have the skill to. Because of our decision-making, we don’t create chances – that’s our issue.
“We had two big chances tonight. The game is different if we scored at those moments. Yet we haven’t. I can’t believe that we have lost it—but we have. This is a rough one, not an easy one to describe.
It’s not about blame, we have to sort it out and we’ll. You don’t have a lot of time in football. We tried a lot, the right stuff in some moments and some not. That’s the challenge that you have to break down the wall by trying, in the right mood, in the right mood. We had chances.
“We can’t imagine the title race at the moment.”
This was the first loss at Anfield in Liverpool since 2017 and now the defending champions have gone 5 games without a win and 4 games without scoring – the latter being our worst streak since 2000 before our score.
Clearly, with the band, things are not right and it’s up to Klopp to fix them. We’re just going to have to hope for the best and see what happens in the games ahead.
