Klopp ‘frustrated and angry’ after Liverpool defeat

Jurgen Klopp was left “frustrated” and “angry” after Liverpool lost 1-0 to Swansea in the Premier League on Monday night.

Alfie Mawson’s first-half strike after the Reds failed to clear a corner properly was enough to give the Swans victory at the Liberty Stadium.

Liverpool beat leaders Manchester City 4-3 in their last match and Klopp was unhappy his side couldn’t build on that display.

“I’m frustrated and I’m angry because it was not a good game,” Klopp told BBC. “We lost the game in the first half. We didn’t do what we wanted to do. It hasn’t happened too often so I didn’t expect that, I was quite surprised. Because of the first half we weren’t flying and they were.

“We made pressure at the end but not enough to score. The last situation was unlucky but if we got a point it would still have been a bad game for us, and it was the opposite of what we wanted. That happens from time to time and it’s never the right moment and like it should be.

“It’s not that we threw it away. Swansea are fighting for their life and we’ve no problem with that, we had a problem with our offensive motions. It’s not what we came here for tonight, we have nothing, and that’s our fault.”
