Why wolves defeated Liverpool- Klopp

Published

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has disclosed why his side were defeated 2-1 by Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night in the FA Cup encounter, uniquesports reports.

Goals from Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves ensured Wolves defeated the Reds at Molineux Stadium.

However, Divock Origi did score for the Premier League leaders.

Klopp said Liverpool were defeated by Wolves because some of his players were sick.

Klopp was quoted by Goal as saying at post-match: “After the Man City game, we had immediately a few players who were ill, who showed [a] soar throat and what you can have in this period of the year. So, they were not even in after the City game.

“Pretty much all the players who were not here today had flu problems – apart from Ali [Alisson]. And so we had late changes. Like yesterday Adam [Lallana] was in our plans, Hendo [Jordan Henderson] was in our plans and Dejan was not in our plans, he should only have been on the bench. It happens, what happened. That doesn’t help a lot and we have to change again.

“We wanted to control the game because we were completely new, especially defensively completely new, so it makes sense to keep the ball.”

The defeat to Wolves means Liverpool are now out of the FA Cup.

Chelsea ace, Eden Hazard has given tactical advice to manager, Maurizio Sarri, ahead of the Blues’ clash with Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg tie on Tuesday night, uniquesports.

Hazard urged Sarri not to change his tactics when they tackle Spurs in tonight’s FA Cup fixture at Wembley Stadium.

Tottenham defeated Chelsea when both sides clashed in their last fixture in the Premier League encounter, but Hazard wants Sarri not to alter his first team squad.

“Sarri is not the kind of manager where if we lose a game, he changes something,” Metro UK quoted Hazard as saying.

“We will go to Wembley with our ideas of how to play football, we will play our football and then we just need to play better than we did in the first game.

“We missed aggression in that match against Tottenham. We need to do a lot more. We know they are aggressive and have top players, but we need to be more compact and create more chances.”

The kick-off time for the match is 9pm
