Klopp: Zero positives to take from Spurs defeat


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits his team deserves to be criticised for their recent performances, following the 4-1 defeat at Tottenham on Sunday.

The Reds' poor defensive record worsened at Wembley Stadium as Spurs put four past them to secure a comfortable victory, meanwhile dropping Klopp's men down to ninth position in the Premier League.

Klopp was disappointed with his team's display and admitted that he can't think of any positives to take away from the defeat.

“I don’t want to say anything positive about us, today… Whatever you say today about us in a negative way, you are right, we are wrong," he told the press, as quoted by The Independent.

“We have to prove it. We have to prove we are better defenders than today. We have three unbelievable big scoresheets with Watford, [Manchester] City and today. That alone is 12 goals we have conceded. That’s crazy.

“It’s a normal week, no game midweek, means we have a lot of time to train. That’s what we will do. It’s open race if they want, who shows me they want to play, who shows me ready to show a reaction, and we have to show a reaction. That’s what we have to do.

“You don’t have to talk about quality if they don’t have quality they would not be involved in Liverpool, 100 percent."
