was defeated against


at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp’s side was able to get a 5-0 victory at the first match against Atalanta but according to


, it was a complete turnaround. Liverpool failed to even have a single shot on target.

“It was not a good game. From both teams, didn't create a lot, until they scored the goals,” Klopp told BT Sport of the 2-0 result.

“A deserved defeat in a difficult game. The ref didn't whistle a lot and that makes it even more difficult, for both sides. It was unbelievably intense and you need some breaks.

“When the first half is gone, you usually settle but for some players who didn't play for a while, it was very intense for them. We didn't find a way in the game.”

Klopp hit out at BT Sport because of the fixture list, which prompted Liverpool to rest several players this evening.

“Easier to talk about a good game. We had moments but not real chances. It could happen to other teams. You ask us to go Saturday at 12:30, which is nearly a crime. That is nothing to do with the result, but congratulations to you.

“Thumbs up, no injuries and we go again.”
