Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, is worried over his team’s loss of 2-0 advantage in the first half to draw 2-2 at Anfield in a Premier League match with Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

After an historic 5-0 demolition of Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend, Liverpool could not rekindle the magic at home with a lowly rated Brighton, as the players fizzled out in the second half to allow Brighto snatch a point st the dreaded stadium.

On the result, Liverpool manager, Klopp, blamed it on the disallowed goals of his team.

He said, “It feels like a defeat. It’s not only because we were 2-0 up and didn’t win, it’s because the game I saw, we scored two of the most beautiful goals I’ve ever seen us score, which were disallowed.

“Sadio’s second goal which was disallowed was my favorite goal of the whole time since we are here. The pressing goal for Sadio was just unlucky. If you want to teach pressing, you would show this situation. But disallowed for handball, I guess.

“Top moments in the first half where we showed how we can hurt Brighton, played some top passes through the centre and played really good football, but were only 2-0. In the second half, we were not good enough. The body language, I didn’t like at all. It was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s really tough’. Yeah, it was clear before the game.

“The best way to defend Brighton is to have the ball yourself and play in the spaces where they are exposed, but we didn’t do that and that’s a problem.”
