League Cup: Klopp 'Sick' As Liverpool Crash Out
Could Klopp be thinking he might soon have to walk alone?
The Reds' woes continued on Tuesday in the League Cup and manager Juergen Klopp said he is now “sick of conceding goals”.
Liverpool have kept just two clean sheets in nine matches this season and are win-less in four games in all competitions.
The latest string of poor results was a 2-0 loss to Leicester City in the League Cup.
Interestingly, Klopp’s side enjoyed 70 percent of the ball in the third-round tie and had 21 shots compared to Leicester’s eight, but failure to cope with basic defensive tasks was glaring.
“We played really good football in the first half, we should have decided the game early. We had big chances, strange situations but it’s football, it’s at least a 90-minute game,” said Klopp, whose side were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.
"It’s second ball after a corner, I think, and a throw-in again. I‘m sick of goals like this to be honest, you cannot play football and do that.
It was Leicester substitute, Shinji Okazaki that broke the deadlock in the 65th minute when Liverpool failed to clear a corner and the Japan forward’s deflected shot crept into the net.
Liverpool’s defense was also guilty in the 78th minute, switching off from a throw-in, although Islam Slimani’s left-footed finish into the top corner was sublime.
