Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has blamed his players for their 1-0 defeat to Leicester City on Tuesday.

Liverpool lost 1-0 to Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes on Tuesday, and are now six points behind league leaders, Manchester City.

Mohamed Salah’s penalty was saved and his follow-up header hit the crossbar, while Sadio Mane scuffed a one-on-one over the bar at the start of the second half.

The Reds were then punished by Ademola Lookman when he burst into the box and fired past Alisson at his near post.

Speaking on why his team lost against Leicester, Klopp said, “It was a very strange game. We were just not good enough. We still had enough chances.

“What we did with the balls was just not right. We played a really bad game, so it was well deserved [for Leicester].

“Our decision-making [was poor], maybe a little bit of luck here and there [was missing]. That’s how it is. We should have had more of these moments. We had enough to score and to get the win, but if you lose you need more of them.

“Second half I think we started OK, then we completely lost our rhythm and didn’t get it back, and then they scored. From then, we forced it, so there’s nothing else to say. The circumstances too – Leicester played two days ago, they deserve it, absolutely.

“You could see it coming a little bit. They had one shot on target. It’s not like they had plenty of chances. We should have defended better, no doubt about that. We do that usually, why we didn’t do it today is hard to explain. There were so many performances below normal level, there’s no explanation at the moment.”
