Same story. A good first half was followed by a second one during which Liverpool showed the same defensive vulnerability as in most – if not all – of the previous matches this season (and not only).
We played really good football in the first half; we should have decided the game early. We had big chances. But that’s football – it’s a 90-minute game. It was a second ball after a corner I think, then a throw in. I’m sick of goals like this, to be honest. It’s unbelievable
Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports, unable himself to understand how his team keep conceding goals like that of Sinji Okazaki in the 65th minute.
Islam Slimani made it 2-0 for Leicester City in the 78th minute, finishing the game off, along with Liverpool’s run in this season’s EFL Cup.
You need to stay concentrated to the end, they scored too easy. The first goal, we don’t push up together, I can’t say it one time or a thousand times, or whatever, it’s not nice to concede these goals and today it’s again because of this
Klopp also said, knowing that his team need to improve a lot and fast, if they are to challenge for any major success this season.
