Wijnaldum makes angry Liverpool admission ahead of RB Leipzig

Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum has explained the emotions of Liverpool squad ahead of Champions League clash with RB Leipzig

The Dutch midfielder admits the Reds have been shocked by their poor home form - and are being affected by the ongoing lack of fans at Anfield.

Liverpool suffered a club record sixth successive home defeat when they were beaten 1-0 by Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday.

It was by far the ideal preparation for the return leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie with RB Leipzig on Wednesday in Budapest, where Liverpool lead 2-0 after the first meeting.

Jurgen Klopp's side have taken just 12 points from their last 14 league games with Wijnaldum accepting even the incessant injuries that have decimated the squad are no excuse for many recent performances.

"Really shocking," he said, when asked about Liverpool's Anfield failings. "I don’t think it was shocking to lose a game but more the way we lost the games.

"We feel really bad. The way we deal with situations during games was really bad. We should be doing better.

"When we analysed the games, it makes us even more angry because we can see that we can be doing so much better than we are doing right now.

"Of course, we have had difficult situations with injuries and those things but the situations we have faced in the games where we have conceded goals have had nothing to do with injuries.

"That is what we are basically most disappointed in. We could have dealt better with situations in games."
