liverpool chief Jurgen Klopp called out his players and questioned their attitude in the first half of their season opener after they were held 2-2 by Premier League new boys Fulham on Saturday. The Reds had to come from behind twice to save a point after Aleksandar Mitrovic netted twice for the west Londoners. Summer signing Darwin Nunez came off the bench to score Liverpool’s first goal before the Uruguayan set in Mohammad Salah for a late second grader.
“The best thing about the game is actually the result,” Klopp said after the game. “We got a point from a very bad game for my side. It’s a question now, how can this happen? I have already told my colleagues, the attitude was not good at the beginning. Then we wanted to fight back but you don’t fight easily anymore, the ground was dry, stuff like that. We played in their cards.
“Most of the time when we found the direction and got in front of their goal, we probably had the biggest chances even when we were down 1-0, the crossbar, all that kind of stuff. The result is good, I don’t think we deserved more than that, but the performance is massively improving.
Liverpool appeared in a bad mood for much of Saturday’s encounter and they fell behind after Mitrovic, who scored 43 goals for Fulham in the Championship last season, led his side into the lead just after half-time. hour as he got up to meet the delicious Kenny Tete. to cross.
“You can’t always kiss boys,” Klopp continued. “We usually do it when they deserve it. In the first half, we started the game in a specific way which was the complete opposite of how we wanted to start. We couldn’t find a direction, we passed the ball against their 4-4-2 in defense and we couldn’t really break the lines.
“It was a clear message before the match, this is where you have to take the risk. Every challenge they’ve won is a very positive thing for them, every chance, every shot on target – huge. We miss a chance, it’s a negative thing. We never had the momentum. Yes, we could have won the game because we had better chances, but today would have been a bit too much. This result was not about the referee or anything.
