Klopp: “I don’t always have to have the best times”

Sun 07 March 2021 | 18:42

Liverpool have only managed to come out winners once in their last seven Premier League clashes, with six consecutive losses at Anfield.

Following

Liverpool

’s 1-0 loss to

Fulham

on Sunday courtesy of Mario Lemina’s goal,

Jurgen Klopp

admitted that he is having one of his worst runs. They have set an unwanted record with their six consecutive losses at home in the

Premier League

.

The Reds are worrying about not getting qualified for the

Champions League

as there are only 10 matches left, but the German boss is confident his squad will turn things around.

When quizzed whether this counts as his worst run as a manager, Klopp said in an interview with

BBC Sport

:

"I would wish to say no but yes, it is. That’s not a problem. I don’t always have to have the best times.

"This team is an extreme team. We were extremely successful and now we have an extreme situation as well but we will fight through."

Notwithstanding Sunday’s result, Klopp believes that his squad did well.

"

The obvious thing [was missing], a goal and a clean sheet. It was always clear that Fulham would cause us big problems with the situation they are in and the one we are in

." he said.

"

It was clear we had to adapt. We started quite well, we were direct and Mo [Salah] caused them problems but we didn’t finish the situations off. Then Fulham were good.

"Our back line was completely new. We had balls in behind where we had to run a lot because we were not high enough or just not in the right position and we conceded the goal.

"That has an impact. Usually, I would say 1-0 down is not a problem, it is a normal score and is one of three possible scores but of course at the moment for us it is different.

"We had to step up and the boys did. We started the second half well, created chances and we did not score again."

Liverpool are sitting seventh on the table, and plan to put an end to their home defeats when they lock horns with

RB Leipzig

in the Champions League on Wednesday in neutral Budapest.
