Liverpool remain winless in the English Premier League.
On Monday, the English runners-up had to concede the superiority of Manchester United away from home.
After the defeat, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp highlighted the injury crisis that has plagued the team, but said that Liverpool could have won.
“Obviously, our injury situation is very tight. We have 14-15 first team players and we hope that no one else will be out of the lineup.
Even in that situation, but if we played at least a little bit better, we could have won this game. I know that sounds a bit strange, but that’s exactly what I saw.
At the beginning of the match, United played very aggressively and it was obvious what was in store for us. Eventually they scored and we took the lead.
We were very unlucky in some situations. I think an equalizer in the first half would have made a big difference.
United’s second goal made things even more difficult for us. We reduced the deficit but then the game was practically over because there were constant stoppages,” Klopp told Sky Sports.
