If the distance from the top of the table in the Premier League and the elimination from the League Cup were not enough, Liverpool suffered another blow yesterday (Sunday) when they were eliminated from the FA Cup after losing 2:1 to Brighton away, just a few weeks after being defeated in the same stadium as part of the league.
The relegation of the Mighty Reds naturally led to quite a few criticisms of Jurgen Klopp and his players in the kingdom and now all that is left for the Reds to strive for is to advance in the Champions League, with Real Madrid waiting in the round of 16.
The loss means that the cup holders will not retain their title, since they have recorded only three wins in nine games since returning from the World Cup break, which did not prevent Klopp from remaining optimistic.
"We came here after two weeks since we recorded one of the worst performances here in my time here, so today it was much better, but we still conceded two goals. We closed the gaps where they dominated last time, but they scored from set pieces. We still have Room for improvement. We are making steps but we need to improve, we need to move on and we will do it."
Klopp also said: "The body language of some of the players has to be better, the defense has to be better. I think in the last game here we couldn't win. We were lucky that they didn't score more. But today nobody would have been surprised if we had won the game This one, so it's good. At the same time, we weren't good enough and that's why we're out."
Liverpool's next game will be against Wolves in the Premier League this Saturday (17:00) when on February 13 they will play in the derby against Everton.
