Boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken of his frustration of defensive issues being blamed on not strengthening the back line in the summer.

He told Sky Sports: "We are a good side but we have been speaking since the beginning of the season about how we didn't buy a defender in the summer. This becomes like a self-fulfilling prophecy because every mistake we make goes back to that."

Klopp, however, believes his players are good enough to resolve their defensive problems
and confident they can improve.

He added: The boys know this, they don't feel the confidence. They are good enough but we always have to improve.

"We don't say it's a little bit of luck and this changes. The challenge for us is to stay confident and play football even when we don't get the results we want.

"We don't have to think too much about performance. We have to improve of course in defending our offensive situations. We are not being out-played, teams are not playing their way past us. It is counter-attacking [that has undone us] and we could have done better to stop this, especially at Newcastle. Most of the time, though, we do really well."
