‘I was not in a good mood’ – Klopp gives more measured reaction to City defeat

    Jurgen Klopp was in a better mood this afternoon as he reflected on Liverpool’s humbling 4-0 defeat at Manchester City.

    Liverpool travelled down the M62 on Thursday night to face the side who they had succeeded as champions just a previous, but were on the wrong end of a thrashing in East Manchester, goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden and an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain own goal sealing the Reds’ second defeat of the Premier League campaign.

    Klopp was in a particularly tetchy mood in his post-match interview with Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves, though the German was more measured in his analysis as he reflected on the mistakes his side made and says he is looking forward to bouncing back when the Merseyside club host relegation-threatened Aston Villa this weekend.

    “I was not in a good mood after the game,” Klopp admitted at his pre-match press conference. “I was not in a good mood when I went to bed, I was not in a good mood when I woke up, and then when I got to Melwood I was in a good mood. Why? Because this is the place where we change the things.

    “The mood is ok, it is what it is. If you lose a game, you lose a game and it should feel like it feels. We never take it easy, we didn’t take it easy last night.

    “But now I’ve had a little more time to think about the game, because the problem with the post-match interview is that you go inside, have a minute, go outside and do the interviews and you still have all the impressions of the game.

    “This game last night, we lost in key moments, and in these key moments, City were better than us. We gave a penalty away after a throw-in where we left Joe [Gomez] alone in a situation against a player that no player on the planet should be left alone against, [Raheem] Sterling.

    “The positioning was not right after another throw-in when Foden scored, and the other two goals when we lost the ball in a situation when we don’t usually lose the ball, with counter-attacks.

    “Apart from that, we were good. We had good situations but didn’t finish any of them off. We had more chances than when we won 3-1 at home, but we gave four goals away and then you cannot win against City.”
