Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp admits the Reds are not consistent enough to think about Champions League qualification after they were beaten by Leeds United at Anfield.


What did Jurgen Klopp say?

The Reds manager saw his side suffer their first home league defeat in 19 months on Saturday night as a late kick from Dutch striker Crysencio Summerville’s gave struggling Leeds United a well deserved 2-1 win at Anfield.

Following this, Reds head coach Jurgen Klopp was asked about his side’s four main prospects, telling reporters that it was not really his main concern. According to Jurgen Klopp, there are many other concerns, but he is certainly not so dumb that he does not know about distances and who is up there.

But the German manager says they can’t qualify for the Champions League if they play as inconsistently as they are at the moment. According to Jurgen, they need to fix this and then they’ll see where they end up. They know that everything is possible, or much is possible. But Klopp says they have to win football games to do that, and they haven’t done it often enough.


A little about the topic

The Reds have won just four of their first 12 Premier League games this season, and are facing a trip to third place by the Spurs next, knowing that defeat will leave them with a mountain to climb to put themselves back in contention.

Dutch striker Crysencio Summerville of Leeds United scored in Premier League appearances after failing to score in his first 12 games in the competition. Crysencio Summerville is the youngest away player (20y 364d) to score the Premier League winning goal at Anfield since English player Wayne Rooney in January 2005 (19y 83d).

What’s next for the Reds?

Before Sunday’s trip with Tottenham Hotspur comes their final Champions League group game, at home on Tuesday in Napoli.
