Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits it is back to square one after two unbeaten runs were ended in the space of six days.
Having seen an 18-match undefeated run in all competitions come to a crashing halt at Swansea on Monday, their 3-2 FA Cup fourth-round defeat to West Brom saw a 19-game home record ended.
It was the first time the Reds had lost back-to-back matches in exactly 12 months, coincidentally also an FA Cup exit – to SkyBet Championship side Wolves.
Klopp has to turn things around quickly as his side travel to Huddersfield on Tuesday where he faces best friend David Wagner in a match they cannot afford to lose.
“It was not the first game I lost. It is just a bad feeling but it is deserved,” Klopp said.
“To be honest I think it makes sense that I sleep another night on it, it makes it not better but it’s a few more hours to realise what really happened.
“We have to really think about what happened and make ourselves ready for Huddersfield. A long run starts with the first game and that’s on Tuesday.”
