Jürgen Klopp Tells Liverpool They Must Defend Better After 5-0 Old Trafford Win

Posted by

Jürgen Klopp has claimed that Liverpool’s world was not flawless in their historic 5-0 thrashing of Manchester United, insisting that his team must improve defensively and be ready of winning 1-0.

Liverpool hasn’t lost in 23 games, their longest unbeaten streak since 1989. They also have the Premier League’s only unbeaten record, and their biggest win came at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Despite this, Klopp warned against complacency, claiming Liverpool had accomplished nothing and calling their start to the season as “OK.” The first visiting manager in Premier League history to take a four-goal lead in the first half stated he spent the halftime break attempting to encourage his squad to tighten up.

He said: “The world is a bit like this: you win 5-0 against United and everything is perfect. Well, it was not. United had clear-cut chances which we gave them. We should not rely on luck or Ali [goalkeeper Alisson]. I saw the first half; we gave too much away.”
