Jurgen Klopp reacted to the loss at the end: "Their stationary situations made the players fight physical contact with their players. We fought back, but it was a game they wanted more than us. I think in the third goal there was a clear foul on Konata, a push from behind is a foul. The VAR system Called this contact 'uncertain and unclear', the referee must give a better explanation for it. We are not happy with our performance of course, we need to control the game more and it didn't happen tonight. I think Brentford stretched the matter of how much physical contact can be made, certainly That I can't say anything about it with the judgment."
The German coach added: "It was a wild game. We should have taken a 0:2 lead, but we didn't take advantage of our situations. We fell behind 1:0, we weren't good enough in the stationary situations. This is an important point that needs to be criticized and things changed. The game was decided by a goal Their second, it's our sole fault."

Jamie Carragher, a former Liverpool player and current 'Sky Sports' commentator, attacked the defensive ability of the Reds: "It looked terrible. It's been going on like this for about a year, this result didn't come out of nowhere. Liverpool's last two performances have been very lucky , but today's game is something that the team will have every four or five weeks. I don't think it's something that will change soon so easily. This team looks like one that is on its way to the end, a shameful performance."
Another great performance from Brentford.
