The boys looked tired mentally - Jürgen Klopp

The boys looked tired mentally - Jürgen Klopp

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has revealed why his side lost to Brighton last night at Anfield.

Steven Alzate 56th minute goal was enough for Brighton to grab all three points on Wednesday as Liverpool looked like a shadow of themselves.

Liverpool struggled to pass the ball around and they couldn't display the kind of magic they were known for as their goalless run at Anfield extends to 348 minutes.

Speaking with BBC Radio 5 after the game, Klopp revealed the cause of the poor game and also shared how his side can get back to their best.

"Tonight we looked really like we weren't fresh enough mentally and physically," Klopp told BBC Radio 5.

"A lot of moments where we gave the ball away too easily, in moments the boys looked tired mentally. I know they can pass the ball from A to B but it didn't happen, we made it easy for Brighton but they also did really well.

"Brighton deserved to win, no doubt about it. For me it's more important to find an explanation for why we lost this game and understand what happened here tonight. We didn't look convincing."

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson also admitted the club was second-best in the encounter and they are disappointed with the outcome of the game in which they should have done better.

“Brighton were the better team. We were hugely disappointing all over the park," Robertson told BBC.

"You have to give the team credit for playing well. They created chances, pressed us – did everything we wanted to do.

“We didn’t really do anything of note. With a long record of going unbeaten, we’ve lost two [in a row at home]. When you don’t show up you don’t get results.

“We prepare for every game different. It’s just not clicking. We need to find a way to get results, especially at home. You can do everything in training."
