By Dominic Toner
Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat to Burnley is his worst moment experienced during his stay at Anfield.
The German manager moved to the Merseyside club last October and has had a major impact on them, with many people now regarding them as serious title contenders this season.
Liverpool did suffer a setback at the beginning of the new campaign and lost 2-0 to newly-promoted Burnley in the second fixture of the Premier League.
The Reds dominated possession but were stunned by goals from Sam Vokes and Andre Gray to hand Burnley a famous win at Turf Moor.
Klopp’s side had 81 per cent of possession in the game but failed to be clinical in front of goal and that remains their only defeat of the season.
