‘I don’t feel too good’ – Jurgen Klopp bemoans Liverpool after another poor defeat

first_img Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp 1 Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp bemoaned his side’s poor decision making in attack as the Reds failed to take their chances in a 2-0 defeat to Leicester.It was an open game at the King Power Stadium, with the visitors creating a number of dangerous chances with neat build-up play, until Jamie Vardy stuck twice in 11 minutes to seal another three points for the Premier League leaders.Leicester remain three points clear at the summit, while defeat left Liverpool floundering in eighth – six points from fifth-placed rivals Manchester United.Despite carving out a number of goalscoring opportunities though, the Reds struggled to pose that much of a threat up front, with Christian Benteke enduring another anonymous outing from the bench to further cast doubt over his suitability in Klopp’s team.The German felt his players could have taken something from the game but ultimately their hesitance in the final third cost them.“We had opportunities in the box but we didn’t find the right decision often enough,” Klopp said following the game.“The longer the game was we didn’t get cooler, the decisions didn’t get better. We had the ball in their box and didn’t shoot“One second later Vardy shoots from 30 yards and the ball was in. This says most about the game. I don’t feel too good.”Klopp took time to acknowledge Vardy’s wonderful opener, where he latched onto Mahrez’s long ball over the top to volley first time over Mignolet and score one of the goals of the season so far.He added: “It’s nice to be in a stadium when Jamie Vardy makes the goal of the month but, in an ideal world, not when you’re the manager of the other team. It made the difference.”last_img
