Jurgen Klopp admits ‘darker moment’ for Liverpool and explains urgent next step

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has called for a collective response after poor start to Premier League campaign continues.


Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool are in a “darker moment” but is adamant his team can collectively fight through their ongoing disappointing start to the season.


The Reds let slip a 3-2 lead having come back from 2-0 down as they were held to a 3-3 Premier League draw by Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield on Saturday.


Having won just two of their opening seven top-flight games, Liverpool are suffering their worst start to a league season in a decade and already stand a whopping 11 points off early leaders Arsenal, albeit with a game in hand.

Klopp’s side face a difficult fortnight with next Sunday’s trip to the Emirates sandwiched by home and away Champions League games against Rangers before being followed by a visit from champions Manchester City.


And while there were some decent performances against Brighton by Alisson Becker and two-goal Roberto Firmino, the Liverpool boss found it difficult to see beyond a significant number of issues still affecting his team.


There were positives, obviously, but overshadowed by a few other things,” said Klopp, speaking to LFC TV.


“In general, we can talk about individual players, but when we win I don’t like it too much and when we lose I don’t like it too much. We have to just make sure that we have the team perform on a consistent high level then everyone will score goals.
