Jurgen Klopp: Reds can solve defensive issues

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool are capable of fixing their defensive issues after a disappointing trip to Wembley saw them concede four against Tottenham.

Liverpool have already shipped 16 goals in nine Premier League games this term and Spurs took advantage of that to move up to third in the table.

Tottenham, who are priced at 11.00 to win the Premier League, ran riot at the national stadium as Harry Kane added a further two goals to his tally for the season, while Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli also chipped in.

Mohamed Salah’s first-half effort was the only moment of light relief for the travelling Liverpool fans and Klopp admits they only have themselves to blame.

“The whole game was pretty much all our fault. We made it much too easy for them,” Klopp said.

The Anfield outfit now sit ninth and 12 points shy of leaders Manchester City with a goal difference of minus two, while only five teams have conceded more goals in the Premier League this season, but Klopp insists they can solve their issues at the back.

He added: “Of course we can. “We have to realise that we are responsible for this, nobody else. Of course we can fix it but we have to fix it as well.”

Liverpool will take on newly promoted Huddersfield, who saw off Manchester United over the weekend, when they return to action at Anfield on Saturday.
