Jurgen Klopp admits he’s not shocked Liverpool’s treble dream ended after FA Cup loss at Chelsea – The Sun
JURGEN KLOPP watched Liverpool’s treble dreams go up in smoke and insisted: “It’s not the biggest shock.”
The runaway league leaders suffered their third defeat in four games as they were dumped out of the FA Cup at Chelsea.
And Klopp admitted his team are struggling to maintain their focus ahead of next week’s crucial Champions League return against Atletico Madrid.
He said: “Usually you don’t get a lot of chances to score against us because we have defended outstandingly this season.
“But now we have to admit that in the last four games we have conceded absolutely too many goals.
“I can’t argue with the numbers and they’re not cool. We don’t want to concede and we want to score more goals.
“We have done very well this season but tonight we were not good enough and we have to accept that we are out of the competition.
“Losing 2-0 is not good but this result is easy to explain because we made two massive mistakes for their goals.
“It was a super intense game and both teams were running around like mad. We had our moments, especially when their keeper made three or four saves in a row.
“You can’t expect it to be easy away to Chelsea but we are not 100 miles away from putting it right and these boys are strong.
“At Watford on Saturday our performance was really bad. Tonight it was not bad and I’m not concerned about it.”
