Jürgen Klopp’s verdict on Reds’ defeat at Hull City

Jürgen Klopp admitted the manner of Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat to Hull City on Saturday afternoon was ‘difficult to accept’ and insisted his side need to make changes immediately to recapture their early-season form.

The Reds suffered a fourth Premier League loss of the campaign as goals in each half from Alfred N’Diaye and Oumar Niasse secured victory for the home side on a day to forget at the KCOM Stadium for the visitors.

Afterwards, Klopp was forthright in his assessment of the game, expressing disappointment in particular at his team’s first-half display and acknowledging the need for improvement.

Read on for a full transcript of the manager’s post-match press conference…

On his reaction to Liverpool’s performance and the defeat…

I have done four or five TV interviews, three or four radio interviews, and usually after a half an hour you feel better because you have no time to think about a lot of things after the game, and then you immediately start answering questions. But this time, it doesn’t feel better. The assessment? We gave easy goals away and we didn’t play the first half as we should have played, especially when you saw the second half. You think then if we’d played from the beginning like this, with this direction, speed, kind of greed and all that stuff, then I think it would have been more difficult for Hull to cope with this. We gave the first half away and from the result side, we gave the second half away. With the first half, we put ourselves under pressure in the second half. We had the chances, yes, but good goalkeeper saves, passion and defending from Hull in the 18-yard box and the six-yard box with a leg here, a leg there, a block here [denied us]. Then we gave an easy counter-attack away again and [it was] 2-0.
