Klopp singles out the only 'good news' in heavy Liverpool defeat05-Oct-2020, 09:33 am
Alisson is now set to miss up to sixweeks through injury with Adrianfailing to impress between the sticks against Dean Smith's side.
Klopp didn't shy away from the poor showing from his team on Sunday but still managed to find some good news indefeat.
"The only good news actually is nobody was injured after the game," Klopp said post-match.
On the impact of the squad's current injuries and absentees, he added: "That’s really for supporters and journalists to make of these kind of things, ‘He is not in, he is not in, he is not in’. There is no need for one excuse, absolutely not.
"Whatever team we could have lined up tonight, I wouldn’t expect to lose 7-2, to be honest – 100 per cent. It’s not necessary, it’s absolutely not necessary.
"I said it in the beginning and it’s true, Aston Villa did really, really well, but we helped as well. This game then has its own dynamic and then influence goes in that direction, one team is flying and the other team is obviously not flying. We know that, that’s how things can happen – but it should not happen. 4-1 down, half-time, usually you would say we try another five minutes and then we just defend. That’s not us.
"Everyone who saw the game had the feeling if we score once, then score for 4-2, then probably game on, or not. Not if we play like tonight, but if we then can improve in the game then it would have been game on.
"Nothing to do with the players we missed tonight; yes, we missed them obviously, but it had nothing to do with the result or the players who replaced them."
