Liverpool News: Jurgen Klopp very frustrated with defending – Gerrard | Football | Sport

In Sport


That is the opinion of pundit and former Liverpool midfielder and captain Steven Gerrard.

The Reds were held to a dramatic draw by Marco Silva’s Watford in their opening Premier League game of the season.

Liverpool were leading 3-2 but Miguel Britos netted in added time from a corner, the second goal conceded from a set piece in the game, to take a point.

Klopp’s side struggled from set pieces last season and Gerrard believes it is a case of same old, same old for his former side.

“It is on today’s evidence,” Gerrard said on BT Sport yesterday.

“Liverpool looked very, very good going forward, very dangerous.

“They scored two wonderful goals but they had some issues as well, certainly with set pieces and defending from cross.

“I’m sure Jurgen Klopp is very frustrated going home today.”

Liverpool’s next game is the first leg of their Champions League playoff against Hoffenheim this Tuesday.

They face Crystal Palace on Saturday in their first home game of the season.
