Klopp on United match: “We should not have lost”

Posted by

Our manager Jurgen Klopp was clearly unimpressed after our 1-0 loss to Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

We went down to a 78th minute Wayne Rooney winner, a goal that once again from an opposition’s corner – it’s a huge Achilles heel and one that needs fixing ASAP.

Klopp was measured in his post-match reaction, saying that we shouldn’t have lost and that the performance of Firmino in particular was pleasing.

“I didn’t see too many chances for Manchester United and we didn’t take ours. Of course it is frustrating. We lost a game that we should not have lost,” he said. “The goal was to defend and we didn’t do it. That is our responsibility. We have to defend set pieces better”

“We did really well creating the chances, but there were a lot of situation where we could have created more chances and didn’t. There were a lot of things but we lost in a derby against Manchester United so I can’t be very positive at this moment so soon after the game.” (via BBC)
