Liverpool coach, German Jürgen Klopp, said that his team was the best party in the match they lost to neighboring Everton 0-2, on Saturday, in the 25th stage of the English Premier League.
Liverpool received an early goal, in the 3rd minute, and tried hard to adjust the result and had many opportunities, but they were not translated into goals, to concede a second goal from the penalty spot, in the 83rd minute.
Klopp said in statements to Sky Sports: “The first goal we had to defend better against, set the point of the match, it was an unnecessary goal. There were many good football moments, so we performed well from a technical point of view, but we had to.” The chase kept going, and we weren’t quiet enough. “
He added: “Everton defended deeply and passionately, but there were moments when we enjoyed complete freedom inside the box (the penalty area), but we could not end the attacks.”
He continued: “In the second half, I changed the way of playing a little, because we wanted to create more problems for them, and immediately we got big chances. Sadio (Mane) had two chances inside the penalty area, and two chances for Firmino in a suitable place, the penalty kick came late and was not decisive, so You don’t have to talk about it much. “
The German coach added: “We can talk about what happened for an hour in detail, and you will then realize that we are talking about 90 percent of the positives and 10 percent of the negatives.”
After this loss, Liverpool stuck at 40 points in sixth place, 16 points behind leaders Manchester City, who will be able to widen this difference when they meet Sunday evening with Arsenal in the top of the 25th stage.
