Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool must go to the basics of defending
Jurgen Klopp has admitted that Liverpool needs to go back to the basics defensively after having conceded a whole lot of goals this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have looked like a pale shadow of themselves defensively this season after drawing 3-3 with Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield over the weekend
Speaking to the press, the German gaffer had these to say
“We’re conceding a lot of similar goals,” he said. “When the timing in our defending is not perfect, we’re a bit open.
“The gap is open for a short moment and Brighton used it quite often, passed through the lines where they could turn. We need to be more compact.
“We have that in our mind. We know that. We said last week defending is an art and it worked well for a long time and when it doesn’t work you realise how much you have to go back to basics.
“We need to defend consistently better. We need to attack consistently better.”
“When you prepare for a game you prepare for a game independent of the situation. Rangers have done well in general but results in Champions League haven’t gone the way they wanted so we expect a fight.
“A good football team. well-coached. An exceptional European season last season and a big achievement to qualify for the Champions League. I saw the Hearts game and they’re a really good football team so that’s what we have to prepare for. We expect a proper fight, a real fight.”
