Klopp 'sick' after missed chances


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said he felt "really sick" after a sloppy Reds outfit lost to Leicester City in the Carabao Cup.

The Anfield side had 13 shots and 76 per cent possession in a dominant first half, but had nothing to show for it at the break and paid the penalty as they conceded twice in the second half.

Summer signings Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dominic Solanke both missed good chances, while Philippe Coutinho bossed midfield until his half-time substitution.

Substitute Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani took advantage of hesitant defending as the Reds faded in the second half.

Liverpool have now failed to win in four games and have conceded ten goals since beating Arsenal 4-0 at the end of August.

Klopp said: "I’m sick of goals like this to be honest, you cannot play football and do that. We conceded like this, that makes me really, really sick.



“The Leicester team somehow survive in the game as we aren't clinical enough. That is okay, but then you need to stay concentrated. They scored too easy.

“With the first goal we don't push up together. I've said it a thousand times. It's actually easy to explain, we played good football in the first-half and missed big chances.

“The goals we conceded are a second ball from a corner and a throw-in again. As long as we concede goals like we conceded today again then it is quite difficult. Everyone can imagine we know how to defend them, but obviously we don’t do it.”
