Jurgen Klopp insists every system in football has a weakness; says the Reds are not just fortunate.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that there is no system in the World that has no weakness in the game of football.

The Reds have been having a tough season in the Premier League has they find it difficult to win games like they used to.

When asked if opponents have finally figured out a way to play Liverpool, Klopp believes this has been happening for years.

“Teams worked out how you can play against us when we are not at our best. Other teams have worked out how to play against us since years, but it still didn’t work out for them because we were exceptional in the moment in the things we did”, Klopp said.

He added that if the team is not in good form then it feels like they have finally find a way to break them.

“In the moment when you are not exceptional then it looks like, ‘Ah, now they realise.’ No. In our best games I could show you the parts where we could have got problems: here, here, here, here.

Klopp further stated that: “There’s no system in the world with no weakness; play with five in the back, three in the back, four in the back, no-one in the back, there’s no system. It’s all about how we perform.

“It’s about what we did and with which intensity we did it and these kinds of things. That changed everything because defending in a 4-3-3 or a 4-5-1, just if you look at it you know where the gaps are but you fill them with your movements and then the gaps are not really existing or are only open for a wing and you close it again.”

When asked whether there has been a physical or confidence issue with putting pressure on opponents, Klopp said: “For the way we defend you need to be brave. We come now back again to how our full-backs defend usually – we jump with our full-backs to the full-back of other teams.

“It was great and when we win the ball then put them under pressure, all great. If you are not in the right moment they just pass the ball past our full-back, who is then obviously not in his position in the back line.”
