The Reds have been criticised for shipping sloppy goals this term, with the two conceded at Leicester on Saturday in the 3-2 win taking the total to 18 overall in all competitions across 10 games. The leaky defence is clearly a concern for Klopp but he is keen to get across a positive message and he fully believes in the Reds’ attacking threat ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League Group clash in Moscow against Spartak.
“It’s obvious we concede too many, there’s no doubt,” the German said.
“That’s really hard for me. Usually, I’m a really good defensive coach, but obviously that has worked not too well so far.” “I know we need results. I like this team. Maybe nobody else likes it, I really like it and I want to improve it together.” Following Tuesday’s long trip to Russia, Liverpool go to Newcastle on Sunday back in the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp says he has faith in his Liverpool team despite admitting they are conceding too many goals this season.
