Jurgen Klopp Apportions Blame After Newcastle Draw

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he didn’t see enough from his Liverpool side against Newcastle who rallied to earn a late point at Anfield.

Mohamed Salah’s fine opener was ruled out by Joe Willock’s 95th minute strike after Callum Wilson had a strike ruled out by VAR in the proceeding minutes.

The Reds now sit sixth in the Premier League table.

Klopp stated that they didn’t fight enough to secure all three points against Steve Bruce’s side.

He told BT Sport after the game: ”We kept them alive and they deserved the goal. They scored the one before, unlucky for Wilson but it is handball.

“We don't even take this present. Really tough to take.”

Before adding: “Why it happened, I don't know. We had to keep the ball.

“In a specific way we don't fight enough. Keep ourselves in a position where we dominated the game.

“We had 70% of the ball, we should have 80%. We created a lot of chances, didn't score with them, so we have to create more. That is how it is. We don't do that well at the moment.

“They fought for it and we got nothing pretty much, but a point.

“It feels like a defeat. If you deserve, you deserve it. I didn't see us deserve it today playing in the Champions League next year.”
