Klopp: Why Liverpool Lost To Brighton

Liverpool Coach Jurgen Klopp has blamed mental fatigue for the team’s loss against Brighton.

Brighton earned a 1-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield to all but end Liverpool’s title hopes.

The Reds had won their last two away matches in the Premier League against Tottenham and West Ham but they have lost their last two home matches against Burnley and Brighton.

“We played against really good opposition, that’s clear,” Klopp said. “We looked mentally not fresh. They deserved to win.

“We wanted to play better and more convincing. We lost too many balls in promising situations. I know the boys can play pass A to B but today B did not seem reachable.

“We had a really tough week. We were not fresh tonight and that’s when you have to find a way.”

Liverpool will slug it out with Manchester City on Sunday at Anfield in a must-win clash.

“The only explanation now is that we are a fatigued team, mentally more or less,” Klopp said.

“We had our moments but they deserved to win. We had to defend with a lot of running, there is no formation in the world where you are always in the right place.

The Defending Champions are now seven points off the top.
