Klopp 'massively disappointed' after Liverpool stars slated in Sky interview - pundit

Paul Robinson has claimed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be “massively disappointed” by his side’s defending this season.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Premier League goalkeeper said “it is not good enough” for the Reds to surrender a two-goal lead at home against Brighton.

Liverpool lost pace on Premier League leaders Chelsea on Saturday after a 2-2 draw with the Seagulls at Anfield.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the result, Klopp criticised the body language and defending of his players.

Robinson believes Liverpool’s defensive problems were exposed at Man United in the first half.

“Klopp will be massively disappointed by that result given the performance they put in the week before,” he told Football Insider.

“To surrender a two-goal lead at Anfield is not good enough for Liverpool.

“The team are giving away too many chances and Klopp acknowledged that after the United game as well. He said he wasn’t happy at half time.

“They were guilty of that again against Brighton.

“Liverpool will be working hard in training to solve that because you can’t continue to do that. You will get punished by the big teams.”

Klopp told Sky Sports: “It looked like bit by bit by bit we lost another player, body-language wise. Then all of a sudden it wasn’t there any more.

“The second goal they scored was a well-played goal, but we could have defended it better.”
