Klopp slams his players as they had “no excuse” in Liverpool’s loss away from home against the brilliant Wolverhampton Wanderers
Liverpool are in freefall after they lost yet another away match in the Premier League, having been thrashed 3-0 by Julien Lopetegui’s Wolves.
Liverpool’s loss against Wolverhampton Wanderers was unjustifiable, according to Klopp
Jurgen Klopp’s men seemed clueless in Liverpool’s loss against Wolves as the Reds truly enter a crisis. This has left Klopp furious with his side, leading him to say: “Obviously it was a horrible start, two goals which cannot happen like that. But it happened, and we were 2-0 down because of our own fault.
“We should have defended better. We were passive in that period. I cannot explain it. There is no excuse for it.
“You’re 2-0 down, the crowd is there, but it opens up and we get some control. Then for about 45 minutes, we play a good away game without scoring. That sums it up, pretty much.
“These 15 minutes cannot be allowed. It needs to change, that’s the thing. I stand here again and for the first 15 minutes I have no explanation, I’m sorry.
“In the end, we lost 3-0 and the goal in the second half was perhaps the first time they crossed the halfway line, but when you start like this you don’t deserve anything.”
Liverpool have now lost 6 games away from home which is as much as they’ve lost in the previous two Premier League seasons. They have Merseyside Derby next with Everton defeating the league leaders Arsenal today.
“We have to change it immediately in the next game,” he said. “Everton won today, and they are in a good moment, so we have to prove a point again.
“For the moment, I’m so disappointed and angry about the first 15 minutes, I can’t find the words for it.
“Then we had chances we should score. It could have been 2-1 and that would have changed everything I’m sure. Wolves deserve the three points.”
