Coach Jurgen Klopp could not hide his anger when he witnessed the performance of Liverpool players in the defeat against Wolverhampton.
On the evening of February 5, the match between Wolverhampton and Liverpool in the 22nd round of the Premier League took place. Both teams are not in good form recently and need a positive result to improve the situation.
However, only Wolves can achieve this goal. When the match had only been 5 minutes, the ‘Wolves’ was enjoying the joy of scoring the opening goal after Matip’s home goal of Liverpool side. Less than 10 minutes later, the home team doubled the lead thanks to Craig Dawson.
Being dumped with two cold buckets of water very early on, Liverpool were forced to rush to find an equalizer. However, the goal was nowhere to be seen, but The Kop had to receive bitter fruit when Wolves finished with the third goal of Ruben Neves. Losing 3 goals difference, Liverpool almost ran out of motivation to play and could not ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋ continuously as before. The match did not have any more goals scored and ended with a 3-0 victory for coach Lopetegui’s teachers and students.
Speaking after the game, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp was very upset by the performance of his students. “I am very frustrated, very frustrated. The start to the game was horrible, the opposite of what I wanted.”
“Obviously it was a bad start. Two goals that could not have happened like that. But it happened and we were 2-0 down because of our own fault. We should have defended better. We are passive in those situations. I can not explain. There is no justification for this,” the German strategist shared.
With this result, Liverpool continued to sink deep into the crisis. The Red Brigade has only 1 win in the last 7 matches and is diving in 10th place in the Premier League table, with only 29 points after 20 matches.
