Jurgen Klopp regrets that Liverpool matched a 53-year club low after their defeat to Tottenham.

Liverpool were easily beaten 4-1 at Wembley by the hosts, who were by far the better side in every respect. Read 16 Conclusions to find out how.

Klopp’s side have now conceded 16 goals in the Premier League this season, with only Watford, West Ham (both 17), Everton (18), Crystal Palace (19) and Stoke (20) allowing more.

It is Liverpool’s worst defensive record after nine games of a top-flight campaign since the 1964/65 season, which Klopp lamented when it was pointed out after the game.

“That’s not a nice statistic,” Klopp responded when told.

“We can’t talk top four. We are ninth with the worst statistics since 1964, I can’t believe it.

“It was bad. Bad, bad, bad.

“The first goal we had to clear the ball, the second goal Dejan (Lovren) missed the ball…. the third goal, another present. Everything that happened today was so obvious.

“Their desire was bigger than ours. How we defended in these four situations (goals) is not good enough.”
