Jurgen Klopp admitted full responsibility after Liverpool’s 68-game unbeaten home run in the Premier League came to a spectacular end on Thursday against Burnley.
After Liverpool lost at Anfield in the league for the first time since April 2017, Jurgen Klopp described decision-making as an issue.
Klopp saw the hosts have 27 total shots – the most Liverpool have had since April 2013 in a single league match without hitting the net – and 72 per cent ownership, but once again they drew a blank.
“We lost the game, which I think is actually impossible to lose but we did it,” Klopp told Sky Sports.
“That’s my fault because my job is to make sure the boys have the right feelings, the right amount of confidence, they make the right decisions and all these kinds of things and that obviously didn’t work out for tonight because we had the ball a lot.”
“We created some situations, it was all okay, but in the final moment obviously our decision-making is not right at the moment and that’s the problem.”
“You have the ball in the right place, then you don’t shoot, then you pass, I’m pretty sure I said the same thing last week and the problem is if something doesn’t work you have to try harder, longer, more often and again and again and make better decisions.”
“It obviously didn’t work out tonight and that’s what we have to admit. Nothing to say about it, that’s why we lost the game.”
