Bournemouth’s second goal at Anfield on Wednesday night seems to be… haunting Jurgen Klopp. That goal cost Liverpool a very important win, a win which, according to him, his team would not have let slip through their hands if they had acted more like… Chelsea.
If it was Chelsea, for example, the opponent would not have the ball three times in the last 20 minutes, I think
Klopp said, accepting that mistakes like the one that led to the final 2-2 against Bournemouth are part of the whole maturing process his players are going through.
We don’t have this experience. Probably you need things like this to get more experience, even though the result was not that good
the German manager told reporters. Klopp was quick to add though that overall, the goals Liverpool concede are up to some point the result of the playing style they have adopted, with all its pros and cons.
On the other hand, we’ve still scored the most goals in the Premier League so far, so it’s part of the game that we try to create moments all the time. We have to get more experience in this, for sure
he said. Liverpool remain third in the table, with seven games left (eight for fourth-placed Man City, and nine for Arsenal and Man United, who are following both).
