Jurgen Klopp who is the gaffer of reigning Premier League champions Liverpool has blamed himself for his side’s embarrassing home defeat against Burnley on Thursday night, January 21.
Liverpool fans were expecting Jurgen Klopp and his wards to get the three maximum points against the visitors, but they suffered a defeat ending their 68-game home unbeaten run.
Goalkeeper Alisson Becker brought down Ashley Barnes in the second half and the Englishman stood to convert the penalty that condemned Liverpool to a defeat.
According to the report on UK Sun, Jurgen Klopp explained that he feels like he was being punched in the face after the Premier League loss against Burnley.
“We lost a game which I think was impossible to lose but we did it, and that’s my fault. We can’t imagine the title race at the moment.
“In the final moment our decision making is not right, that’s the problem. You have the ball in the right place then you don’t shoot, then you pass.”
Klopp and his wards are now six points off leaders Manchester United down in fourth with Spurs and Everton both able to go above them if they win their games in hand.
Liverpool will be facing Manchester United in their next game on Sunday, January 24, which will be in the fourth round of the English FA Cup.
