Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp gave his thoughts following the 1-2 loss to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup at Anfield last night. The German boss has confirmed a sloppy defending from his team was determinant to give the Blues “too much space” to attack and bounce back in the second period.
He told journalists: “We knew how Chelsea wanted to play but we gave them too much space and weren’t compact enough.
“The linesman is in a really good position. There was so much in the game. Unfortunately in the end we have to take it. We wanted to win it, we feel unlucky, we hit the bar.
“I think the first goal is offside. Three players are offside – two for sure. They watched it and didn’t think it was offside. We have to take it.
This is good preparation for Saturday but we have to defend better.”
