Klopp: It's not over

Manager confident of second-leg win

Jurgen Klopp has warned Villarreal that Liverpool will be up for the fight when the two sides meet in the Europa League semi-final second leg at Anfield next week.

Substitute Adrian Lopez netted in the second minute of injury time to give Villarreal a slender lead ahead of the return leg in a week's time.

Having watched his side stage a stunning comeback against Borussia Dortmund in the last round, Klopp is confident the Reds can turn the result around when they host the Spanish side at Anfield.

"Things are possible with 1-0, it is not the biggest result in the world. Villarreal know a lot more about us and they will respect us," he said.

"Now we have to find solutions to a few things but I saw we are in a good way. I saw a lot of things that show we can [win].

"To be honest it is the first leg. My first thought was, 'Sorry, but it is not over, you have to come to Anfield too and we will be ready'.

"With the help of Anfield we can do it - but please don't compare with Dortmund."

Reflecting on the late goal, the German added: "After controlling a game in most parts a 92nd-minute counter-attack sounds like it is - not too good and everyone knows it and it should not happen.

"I've seen some unbelievable mistakes in my career but I don't think about things like this. It happens.

"It was not too smart. There are lot of things we could ask but it makes no sense.

"It is not a moment for disappointment. If the players want to be angry for 10 minutes then do it and move on."
