A 1-1 draw with Chelsea in what was a largely meaningless game for both sides certainly isn’t the worst result in the world.

Klopp wasn’t thrilled though. He wants to perform well and win every match.

In his post-match comments, he criticised the lack of patience we showed, both on the pitch and in the stands.

“I said to my players after the game it was the most important game of the season because we could learn most from it,” he said (via Echo).

“We showed in the first 15 minutes what we are capable of. We were great, wonderful football without scoring.

“But there was not enough faith in our own quality so we lost patience and when you lose patience in football it’s always difficult.

“Without patience, we lost formation. We had a lot of moments around the box when we shot when we should have passed.”

“I love this stadium and atmosphere but everybody last patience tonight, the crowd too. It’s quite difficult to say ‘be patient’ when everybody is shouting ‘run’.

“We all don’t trust our quality. That’s what we have to learn. We can learn that in the future and we will.

“If you don’t think you need to score in each situation because you have players who can create chances and score goals, you can celebrate other situations.”

We now have just one more game – away to West Brom – before we travel to Switzerland for the Europa League final.
