EPL: Why Liverpool lost 2-1 to Leeds – Klopp

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has analyzed his side’s performance as they lost 2-1 to Leeds United on Saturday.

It is the second consecutive defeat to a team in relegation places for the Reds, after losing 1-0 at Nottingham Forest last week.

Rodrigo Moreno gave Leeds the lead at Anfield before Mohamed Salah equalized for Klopp’s men.

However, Crysencio Summerville netted a memorable winner for the Elland Road club.

Klopp, speaking to Sky Sports, said: “It was a set-back, absolutely. I thought we had a really good start, then conceded a freakish goal.

“We scored the equaliser but for some reason it didn’t give us the security back. We struggled to control the game and gave too many balls away.

“The boys tried, we had good possession and had big chances but, in the end, if it is 1-1 and you defend the situation around the second goal like this, you leave everything open.

“In the end, it was two versus one in the box and they can finish off the situation. The problem is we cannot control this type of game at the moment.”
