Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, says his team lost to Man City in the Carabao Cup Round of 16 on Thursday night because they played a formation that they haven’t played for a long time.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Liverpool’s defence of the Carabao Cup ended with a 3-2 defeat by Manchester City at the Etihad.
“We played a formation that we haven’t played for a long time, and we had to change in pretty much our last session. You could see that, we needed time to adapt,” Sky Sports quoted Klopp as saying.
“In the first 15 minutes we had real problems and that killed our confidence and conviction a little bit.
“The goals we conceded were completely unnecessary. We had good spells and could have scored more goals as well. It’s a result we have to live with now.
“It was a high-intensity game from both teams, that’s normal. We played a good game but not good enough to beat City tonight. That says something but not everything. It’s just how it is.
“There’s a lot we can build on and we can take into the next games and that’s what we’ll do.”
