Jurgen Klopp admitted Liverpool’s 3-3 draw with Brighton was ‘horrible to watch’ and accepts his side are struggling after a poor start to the season.
Klopp told his post-match press conference: “If you watch football long enough, you remember games here where we had situations years ago when we were only one goal up, and it happened quite frequently that everybody was nearly having a heart attack because we were just not convincing in these moments. It reminded me of that a bit today. I cannot say I was 100 percent convinced that we would not concede a goal when we were 3-2 up.”
“I don’t know how many times today I saw their offensive players just turning between the lines, it was horrendous, really horrible to watch. We are under pressure, we don’t ignore that. We don’t increase it every day but it is there. We want to do much better, have more points, improve in the table.”
Liverpool have won only two of their first seven league games this season, and sit 11 points behind leaders Arsenal, who they face at the Emirates next weekend.
