Jurgen Klopp isn’t happy with the way his players defended in their lost against Brentford in the Premier League as he claims his side will pull through.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp fumes at his side defending in their lost against Brentford in the Premier League last night.

The Reds were defeated 3-1 by the Bees away from home as Oxlade Chamberlain second half goals was not enough to do a comeback.

Liverpool went behind in the first half of the game as following Konate’s own goal and Yoane Wissa 42minutes strike.

Reacting to the game Klopp wasn’t happy with his defenders in the game after his side lost a vital three points.

“The way they play is clear. And the defending around the second goal didn’t surprise me, it’s just not right”, Jurgen Klopp said after Liverpool’s defeat.

“They just chipped the ball in behind and we can deny the cross, and I think with two players we are there doubling but let him still cross the ball and that they come with two players in the far-post area we knew before the game, so you need to know where they are coming from and then you can step in – but we didn’t do that and that’s why this goal is the one we should have defended. But it’s nothing to do with general defending.”

Liverpool failed to close the top 4 gap on the League but Klopp is determined and believes his side will fight through.

“We can change our position only by winning football games and tonight is obviously the opposite, so we didn’t gain any points, cannot take anything from it.

“How I said, we have to win football games and that we have a lot of players not available in the moment, you can see that in changes and when we change it’s now not that we can just throw in offensive players and stuff like this to give somebody a rest or say, ‘OK, come on, you did enough for today.’ So they all pretty much have to fight through. That’s the situation and nothing else.”
