Klopp needs response against Chelsea after defeat

0 26

Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool desperately need to beat Chelsea on Tuesday after their collapse against Man City.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that his side needs to respond after Saturday defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League.

The Reds take on the Blues who could be buoyed by the managerial bounce following the exit of Graham Potter.

Klopp will take his side to Stamford Bridge not knowing what to expect tactically from the managerless side, but he is aware there is likely to be a reaction mentally from their players.

Asked if he needed a reaction from his own players given how disappointing they were at the Etihad, Klopp said: “As badly as it’s possible.

“We need it definitely. It was a super strange game. An OK first half and an awful second half. We said it was unacceptable but it happened anyway and now we have to make sure we are ready.

“You cannot really work on the pitch in training. Games like this have a double impact, you might lose even more confidence, but the desire to show a reaction is there as well.

“The boys are still good people and we want to show a reaction. But the short turnaround is a problem.”
