Liverpool have had the upper hand over the top teams ever since Jurgen Klopp was appointed as the manager of the club.
However, the Borussia Dortmund manager failed to come up with something special when his team failed to produce the goods against Manchester United. The Red Devils were able to claim a narrow 1-0 win at Anfield. The two teams were coming on the back of their own struggles in several departments. While Liverpool were struggling to achieve any sort of consistency in the game, United have been extremely poor in attack.
However, United were able to claim something out of a tight contest with Wayne Rooney scoring the only goal of the match. The former Evertonian coming up with a goal only added to the insult for the home supporters. Klopp’s team did have some good opportunities in the 90 minutes. The German was especially critical of the team’s failure to take their chances that came the way. Brazilian Roberto Firmino came to the club only in the summer and has scored only three goals in 16 appearances. His lack of confidence was evident when he missed a glorious opportunity to equalise in the dying moments of the game. Liverpool have now had just one win in the last five matches.
“I feel really bad. It’s a derby and in a derby you only have one job to do and that is to win to have any chance of being satisfied after the game.If United were to talk about their performance, they would say it’s not that good but they won so they are really happy. We played better but we feel really frustrated because of the result.The performance and a lot of things we did today were really good. Creating chances was good, finishing was not,” said Klopp.
