Klopp Reacts To Third Loss In Four Games

After Chelsea handed Liverpool their third defeat in four matches when they knocked them out of the FA Cup with a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, manager Jurgen Klopp commented on his side's concerning dip in form.

Prior to their loss to Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie last month, Klopp's team had been on an incredible run across all competitions, especially in the Premier League.

However, Liverpool have now lost three of their past four matches, scoring just three times and conceding eight goals in what has been a worrying spell for the European champions.

On Tuesday, Frank Lampard's Blues kicked the Reds out of England's oldest cup competition courtesy of strikes from Willian and Ross Barkley, ending their treble hopes in the process.

After the match, Klopp suggested that his team has not been as defensively astute in recent games as they have been for much of the season, and admitted they were just not good enough against Chelsea.

"Look, it went our way for so long because we defended outstandingly," he told LiverpoolFC.com.

"Usually you don't get a lot of chances against us and stuff like this, but now we have to admit that in the last three games – (maybe) four – we have conceded absolutely too many goals, that's true.

"From completely different situations, so it is not one problem, but we see it as well. I am not worried about the momentum – momentum is not something you get as a present, you have to get it to keep it.

"We have always a chance to get it back. No, I am not concerned about the momentum, but it is football and we never thought it would be an easy season, it would be an easy period, it would be an easy game tonight.

"Nothing, it was always clear it would be difficult – it was always clear it was difficult. We did very well, but tonight not good enough in decisive moments and that's what we have to accept."

Coronavirus Puts Liverpool's EPL Title In Jeopardy

Liverpool remain in pole position to lift the 2019/20 Premier League trophy, but will need to turn their tie against Atletico next week Wednesday around if they are to progress to the quarter-final stage of the Champions League.
