Liverpool vs Fulham, Premier League

Rafa Benitez wants the January transfer window to open early Rafa Benitez wants the January transfer window to open early

But despite their position among the leading title contenders, Liverpool have endured criticism of late after some erratic displays both domestically and in the Champions League.

"We win a game then afterwards we have to say sorry that we did not win it in the City way so, whatever, I get that we have space for improvement but there's no reason for a negative view on it".

Jurgen Klopp feels Liverpool are having to apologise for "not winning like Manchester City" after opening up on a team meeting about their expectations.

"We can do better, that's always the case, but our football so far has been pretty successful".

While Klopp admitted his players were below-par on Tuesday night in Serbia, he said: "A lot of things are better than at the same time a year ago".

'We chose an ugly way to lose the game, ' he said.

"This game is a big challenge, really, for all of us".

"The spectacular football didn't happen in each game, but it didn't a year ago as well".

"People seem to be saying this season will only be a success if we become champions, but it is not like that".


Klopp said the perception of Liverpool's 2017-18 campaign, in which they scored 135 goals in all competitions, had affected assessments of his side's season so far.

"I'm not in doubt about the a positive reaction". It is more that Jurgen Klopp tried to change his team around a little bit and it did not work. It's simple. They know they didn't offer enough, and we need to encourage them to push forward.

"But I also can not and will not ignore everything else we have done so far this season".

"It's all OK, but this game on Tuesday was this kind of massive knock that was not expected".

"Now we have to react for us in the right way, not only on Sunday, but in general".

Jokanovic dismissed "speculation" about his future but he recognises his team need to vastly improve if they are to survive, unexpectedly criticising them and demanding they do not throw away in a matter of months the Premier League status that took years to secure.

"There's only one real assessment that counts and that's mine".

"After the Huddersfield game, I told..." If I'm angry it doesn't help.

The Reds can hoist themselves above Manchester City and Chelsea FC to the top of the table for at least a couple of hours if Liverpool FC beat Fulham on Sunday.
