Liverpool’s Manager Sad With Recent Form But Hopeful

Liverpool has endured a frustrating week but manager Jurgen Klopp insists his side have the character to bounce back and respond positively.

A troubling eight days for the Reds began with a 5-0 thumping from Manchester City, in which star winger Sadio Mane was sent off. They then conceded late to draw 2-2 with Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek and the frustrating week was topped off with a home draw against Burnley on Saturday.

Klopp certainly had his side’s Tuesday Carabao Cup tie at Leicester in mind and made seven changes for the visit of Burnley, but the ploy didn’t pay off.

Despite the disappointing result, the German tactician believes Liverpool can improve and the fans have better days to look forward to.

“We made seven changes but we were still really fluent, (playing) offensive football, dominant football,” said Klopp, after watching his side have 35 shots to their opponents’ five and enjoying 71 percent possession.

“Seven changes and playing this type of football, no one should take it for granted.

“Yes, result-wise (it is frustrating) but honestly I am as a person not like this. If I can get over the few more than unlucky situations then it is my job to see the performance.

“We reacted really well and why we feel so disappointed or frustrated is because we see what this team can do.

“Now we have to use this quality consistently. We could have won pretty much all our games so far when you think about the performance.

“We didn’t win all and we lost one really high but it was a strange game, we didn’t perform from the first second like someone would expect when you lost 5-0.

“If we can keep the shape and improve the other things, we can be really strong.”
