Jurgen Klopp said Liverpool were not in "dreamland" after their EFL Cup loss to Arsenal, which he put down to a lack of cutting edge in the final third.

Klopp watched his side beat Arsenal 3-1 at the same venue in the Premier League on Sunday, but took the opportunity to shuffle his pack this time around amid a congested fixture schedule.

The likes of Neco Williams,Marko Grujic, Curtis Jones and summer signing Diogo Jota were all drafted into the starting line up, with Takumi Minamino asked to lead the line in place of first choice centre-forward Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool managed to create the better openings over the course of the 90 minutes, with Jota and Van Dijk both going close, but could ultimately find noway past Bernd Leno in the Gunners net.

The match was eventually decided on penalties, and the match was decided when Harry Wilson stepped up to take the Reds' fourth spot-kick of the night.

Unfortunately, the Welshman saw his effort saved by Leno, which allowed Joe Willock to step up and net the winner, sparking wild scenes of celebration in the Arsenal dugout.

Klopp was pleased with how his makeshift team performed in terms of their effort and build-up play, but he was left disappointed by alack of creativity in the final third.

"If there would have been a winner in 90 minutes it should have been us but we are not in dreamland, you have to score," the Reds boss said post-match.

"I liked a lot of parts of the game, we mixed it up a lot and I saw a proper performance, a lot of things we like on the pitch when you wear this wonderful shirt.

"A penalty shoot-out is tricky, everyone knows. That is it."

Asked specifically what Liverpool's performance lacked, Klopp responded: "Goals. So many things are different when you mix it up in decisive positions especially.

"I really liked how the boys did it, there were a lot of good individual performances, it could have been a Premier League game but here or there we lacked the last pass.

"There were not a lot of chances in this game because there was a lot of work from both teams closing each other down."
