Jurgen Klopp has admitted his Liverpool facet didn’t deserve the three factors on supply in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Fulham, criticizing the Reds’ “attitude” to start out the season.
Marco Silva’s males ran Liverpool ragged in the primary half and ultimately took the lead by means of Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Darwin Nunez got here off the bench to equalize halfway by means of the second half, earlier than Mitrovic scored from the penalty spot after being fouled by Virgil van Dijk. Mohamed Salah was readily available to rescue some extent late on after some confusion within the Cottagers defence.
Speaking to BT Sport after the recreation, Klopp revealed he was livid with Liverpool’s begin and made his emotions recognized at half-time.
“The best thing about the game is the result, that we get a point from a really bad game from my side,” he stated. “The attitude wasn’t right at the beginning, we wanted to fight back but we don’t think it’s as easy anymore.
“The outcome is sweet, we do not deserve greater than that, however the efficiency might be vastly improved.”
He added: “You can’t always hug the boys [at half-time]. We usually do it when they deserve it and the first half – it’s not like they didn’t but when you start a game it’s the opposite of how we want to start it’s difficult.
“Everyone was below strain, we could not actually break the strains. We by no means had the momentum, we may have gained the recreation as a result of we had extra probabilities but it surely would have been an excessive amount of.”
