Jurgen Klopp took full responsibility for Liverpool’s disappointing 1-0 defeat at Anfield against Burnley.
Speaking post-match with Match of the Day, Klopp said Liverpool’s defeat to Burnley is “not easy to explain”:
“Everything, all the English words, massive, massive punch in the face or whatever, it’s my responsibility, that’s the easy explanation. We had the ball a lot, created some and didn’t finish the situations off. That keeps the game open and then they get the penalty – Alisson told me he didn’t touch him, but I didn’t see it back.
“It’s wrong decisions in the moment, three crosses in the box, we tried to find a player, didn’t, it’s my job to make sure the boys are in the right position, that they feel right.
“It’s a tough one, not easy to explain, These boys are not the kind of person after a 7-0 to think we’ll go like this, they worked tonight hard and it didn’t happen, if something doesn’t work you have to try harder, more often, longer. It was not easy to lose that game and we did it.
“It’s not about blaming, we have to sort it together and we will. In football, you don’t have a lot of time. We tried a lot, in some moments the right things and some not. That’s the problem. You have to break the wall down by trying, in the right mood. We had chances.
“We can’t imagine the title race at the moment.”
