The Reds had the chance to climb the top of the league after Tottenham's draw.


boss Jurgen Klopp believes his side have not performed very well against Fulham.

Jurgen Klopp's side had the opportunity to climb to the top of the table with a victory over Fulham and Tottenham's draw against Crystal Palace. Still, it was eventually held to a 1-1 draw to stay in second place.

The German coach objected to his team's performance from the sidelines during the game and criticized his players after the game.

“We didn’t play well [at the start],”

Klopp told Sky Sports.

“If they had to wake up I don’t know, but I cannot write a book and throw it on the pitch and tell them to read it. 

“What I wanted was to shake ourselves and start again. 

“A good start is nice, but if you don’t have a good start then you can start again, start again, start again. We needed half an hour pretty much to get our feet in the game.

“So that is why I shouted a bit at them.”

“After half an hour it was better, not good but better, second half it was good,”

Klopp said.

“So with the momentum on Fulham’s side, the crowd here fighting for a result, lucky in one or two situations - Hendo’s chance was a big one, Curtis, a sensational run, really good finish ancd a good save. 

"We could have got more. But the first 30 minutes it was not good. We could have lost the game in that 30-minute period. We didn't and the next 60 was good.”
