Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp is struggling to grasp the two big mistakes made by his goalkeeper Alisson in the 1-4 defeat by Manchester City.
Jürgen Klopp (Liverpool coach after his team lost at home (4-1) against Manchester City): “At the end of the day, when you lose 4-1, it’s not your day, but a good part of the game was very good for my team (…) In the first half we played very good soccer and we were really good in the game. At the beginning of the second period, they changed the system a little bit, in 4-4-2, and (…) we gave them the first goal by giving them too many chances.
We tied the game and we thought at the time that the game could still swing in our favour and we made two huge mistakes (by goalie Alisson), it’s clear, everyone saw them. And at 3-1, at this level, it’s hard to take it. So most of the time the performance was good, really good, high level. If we had played like we did then, we wouldn’t be ten points behind City tonight. The mistakes we made, against a normal team, it’s a bad thing, against a team against City, they’re fatal. »
