Fans Angry With Klopp For Throwing One Liverpool Player Under The Bus

It was an evening to forget for Liverpool on Sunday, as they succumbed to a whopping 1-4 defeat against Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley stadium.

Jurgen Klopp’s side’s defence was torn apart by Spurs, with Harry Kane netting a brace to thwart off the Reds. Liverpool saw the game killed off in the first half itself, and despite them scoring a goal, a comeback from 1-3 never looked on the cards. Spurs increased the agony in the second half by adding another before seeing off the game comfortably.

Klopp, in his post-match conference, lashed out at his defenders, especially Dejan Lovren, for allowing the game to be killed off so early.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Klopp said: “The whole game the whole result was all our fault – Tottenham was good, they needed to be good, but we made it much too easy for them.

“The first goal was a little throw in and we are not really there. It was just really bad, bad, bad defending. The second, a counter attack, when the ball passes Dejan Lovren it is already too late.”

Many Liverpool fans agree on their side’s woeful defending, but are evidently angry with the suggestion that their opponents were the favourites following Lovren’s mistake 12 minutes into the fixture.

 

 

Liverpool are winless in their last three Premier League games, and face Huddersfield at home next. With the loss against Spurs, Klopp’s side stays ninth in the standings, with 13 points after 9 game.
