Klopp takes full responsibility for ‘average day’

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has taken full responsibility for his side’s performance during their 4-1 loss to Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday.

Two mistakes from Dejan Lovren helped Spurs into a two-goal lead after only 12 minutes before Mohamed Salah got one back for the Reds.

However, Dele Alli’s goal on the stroke of half-time seemed to knock the stuffing out of Klopp’s men and Harry Kane scored his second of the match only ten minutes after the restart.

“We had it felt like 60, 70% possession, but after 2-0, you saw the goals, what we did around the goals, easy to defend, we have defended situations like this all season,” Klopp told BBC.

“We had our chances, scored one, and the game was on the table. Being down one goal at Tottenham, you can fix it. The third is down to completely not concentrating off the ball. Four mistakes from us, and then Dele doesn’t even hit the ball 100%.

“After 10 minutes of the second half we gave another goal away. That shows the problem of the game – they were much more spot on and that’s 100% our responsibility.

“It is my responsibility. No I don’t coach the type of defending for the first throw in… the second goal, we miss the ball and then Son is quicker. We put it on a plate.

“It’s not about confidence. It’s just about being 100% spot on. It was a really average day for us today.”
