Klopp and his boys were held to a one all draw by Newcastle united at the St. James Park in match day seven of the EPL.
habitually the Kops dominated the game thanks to Phillip Coutinho’s first half 30 yard strike but no thanks to their inability to capitalize on many chances that could have given them a win.
Speaking to the press after the match Klopp said he was disappointed and frustrated with the final outcome. Below is how he lamented in words of frustration
“I am disappointed, frustrated, whatever you want. Away at Newcastle for each team will be a difficult place to play. We scored a wonderful goal and created wonderful chances. We shot the ball over the goal even when it was empty. We created five or six outstanding, big chances. Usually we score with one of them. I didn’t see one more chances for Newcastle.”
Yet on the other side former Liverpool coach , Rafael Benitez is contend with the results given the quality and status of the side coached by Klopp.
“When you get just one point at home we cannot be happy but against a top six like Liverpool, creating so many chances, you have to be a little bit happy. The way our players were working, tackling and trying to win every ball was fantastic.” Said Benitez.
Newcastle hardly created chances but the only opportunity was well used was graceful. In a poor Liverpool defending state, Joselu Lingered with the ball with no mission to score yet but Liverpool player Matip’s sliding challenge effects the ball on Joselu’s shin and the ball takes the direction of the net to level scores.
Tactically it’s unexplainable why Liverpool produces unpleasing results amidst the zeal players’ show to win the game.
In games played in September, Liverpool has had 126 shots on goal but only 34 were on target and they only won one of the seven fixtures.
Klopp and his side are seventh on the table and will take two weeks off from tournament so that players can commit with national teams and return to face Manchester United at Anfield in their next fixture on 12 October.
Benitez likewise with their boys will be absent in the premier league for two weeks and visit St. Mary’s stadium to play Southampton on 15th October 2017.
