Jurgen Klopp, who used 21 players in the game, was left to rue the chances Liverpool missed before Dortmund's late rally in sweltering conditions. “The game was obviously very difficult for both teams. You could see after five minutes a few players thought ‘wow, where are we here?!’ It is quite difficult with these mixed line-ups, and Dortmund had the same problem, to get this organisation. Fabinho, position-wise, should be the guy who organises things for us, but with Adam Lallana and Curtis Jones, plus two wingers, it was not too easy.
The beginning of Dortmund was good, then we controlled things without creating chances. We scored a nice goal off a set-piece.
The second half we played a lot better against a different Dortmund side, our pressing was much better. We won the balls but we didn’t do very good things with the balls that we won. The surprise is that we scored the goal in the first half and not the second.
We had two big chances off set-pieces again with Dom Solanke and Joe Gomez, and we had a chance with (Sheyi) Ojo.
Daniel (Sturridge) was in a few good positions too, and I liked the football that we played there. Then we had a drinks break, deep in our own half, around our box lost the ball, lost it again and it’s a penalty. We don’t like it but it can happen.
On a day like this you have to stay strong and show desire, greed to keep going. But then Dortmund scored a second and then a third. It was too much. We have to learn off it and go again." #LFC #YNWA #Klopp #Liverpool #LiverpoolFC #WeAreLiverpool #LFCFamily #Anfield #TheReds #TheRedPost #PremierLeague #LFCPreseason #LFCTour #LFCvBVB
