Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool’s confidence has taken a hit after the recent run of poor results.
January has been a poor month for the Reds, having scraped past Plymouth in the FA Cup, they were knocked out of the EFL Cup by Southampton on Wednesday and have slipped to fourth in the Premier League, damaging their title odds according to Sportium.
Only one win in seven games against a League 2 side has left confidence at a season low but Klopp doesn’t think it is “that serious”.
“How could the confidence be exactly the same? Of course it has changed, it has influenced us. We have suffered a little bit,” Klopp said at a press conference on Friday.
“It’s a little bit like building a house.
“We are still building. It’s not that serious. It’s not a big problem. We have the next chance tomorrow. That’s nice.”
Loris Karius made a few good saves against Southampton on Wednesday and Klopp thinks the goalkeeping position is now the least of their worries.
“I understand 100 percent, we talk about the problems we have,” Klopp added.
“A lot of people thought last year we weren’t happy with one goalkeeper, now they think we aren’t happy with too.
“But I think goalkeeper is our smallest issue. I am fine with the goalkeeper issue.”
