Liverpool who were without a win in their last three games continued to struggle as they were beaten 2-0 by Leicester City in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday which ensured that they were knocked out of the competition.
Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool boss, was frustrated by the way his team's been conceding, believing that the team is not focused enough to hold on for 90 minutes.
"We played really good football in the first half and should have decided the game early. We had big chances. But that's football, it's 90 minutes, at least. Leicester somehow survive because we are not clinical enough, sometimes it's like that, but you need to stay concentrated until the end and not allow them to score. They scored too easily", Klopp said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
"The second ball after a corner, and a throw-in… I am sick of goals like this. You cannot play football. First goal we don't push up together, you can say it one time or 1000 times, it's not nice to concede these goals, and today it's again because of these."
"After the first goal you saw the heads from Leicester went up, that was a bigger difference. The game changes in moments like this, you have the chance to do it by yourself or sometimes you are on the wrong side and that's how it is.But that we concede like this, that makes me really, really sick."
Liverpool couldn't manage to hold on in their Champions League bout against Sevilla, which was also a result of "schoolboy defending". The Reds will hope for a better outing when they play Leicester City this weekend in the Premier League.
