Liverpool have lost their winning ways - Jurgen Klopp


The Reds were beaten by Fulham on Sunday taking  their defeat at home to six in a row in two months

Jurgen Klopp has declared Liverpool's 1-0 Premier League defeat to Fulham was due to team players' change in the mentality they are used to.

The Reds suffered an unprecedented six straight home defeats in the league when they lost to the Cottagers on Sunday.

The game was decided by Mario Lemina ’s first goal for the club just before half-time.

Jurgen Klopp whose side led the Premier League at Christmas, is seeing their top-four hopes rapidly disappearing and the German believes that it's the team's confidence that has been affected by results and injuries.

"Not good enough. Conceded a goal, didn’t score, lost the game," said Klopp.

"We started OK. We had some moments but didn’t use them. They had their moments behind our last line. We conceded a goal in the moment we didn’t expect it just before half-time. We got used to each other and played some good stuff, created chances, didn’t score and the longer the game goes on in our situation it is not that you get stronger, it gets lesser and that it how it was."

Fulham midfielder Harrison Reed suggested the visitors "wanted it more” than the defending champions and, while Klopp could not agree with that, he knows the rapidly-dwindling confidence is becoming a concern.

"I understand. The winner is always right. I don't see that problem. My boys wanted to win games," he added.

"The reaction football-wise was kind of OK. There are a lot of players who are not on the pitch who can't be a leader in this moment. That is clear. We can't win the game because we won all the games before or because you want to win a game.

"Believe me these boys want to, that it doesn’t work at the moment, that we don’t score goals and concede one is enough at the moment.

"We don't have the mentality we are used to but the boys want to win games and I saw that today. We still made mistakes and that’s the problem.

"It (the top four) is really not my concern at the moment. I cannot think about that. We have to win a football game. We have to win one football game, that would be helpful already."
