Klopp defends Liverpool after Man City embarrassment

    Jurgen Klopp refuses to admit Liverpool players lacked motivation or let their standards slip in the match against Manchester City.

    Liverpool looked a shadow of their usual selves during their matchday 32 clash against Manchester City on Thursday.

    The newly crowned Premier League champions were given a standing ovation at the Etihad, and that was pretty much their only highlight of the night.

    Goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, and Phil Foden saw the home side take a healthy lead into the half-time break. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain then bulged his own net to complete Man City’s 4-0 thrashing of his side.

    Last night’s result marked the Reds’ heaviest defeat since September 2017, when the same opponent in the same venue dismantled them 5-0.

    The bizarre scoreline raised doubts over their commitment for the rest of the season. Dismissing any such concerns, Jurgen Klopp insists his players are focused as ever.

    “I saw a brilliant attitude,” Klopp said of his players to Sky Sports.

    “Against Man City, you have massive problems. We had moments. We had chances, we didn’t use them. The result we have to take.

    “If you want to lead this story in the direction we were not focused, then do it. I liked my team’s attitude, you ask again. Isn’t it nice another team can be champions when Man City can play so well.”
