No pressure to win trophies at Liverpool FC, says Klopp

No pressure to win trophies at Liverpool FC, says Klopp”

Of course first half we thought it was going to be Liverpool because we did lead a charmed life.

Klopp's men initially cleared a corner but then failed to deal with a return ball into the box, allowing Shinji Okazaki to seize on the scraps and angle a low shot beyond goalkeeper Danny Ward.

But Liverpool threw away this tie.

'The story of this game is really easy to tell, we were the much better team in the first half, we played good football, we didn't score, that's sometimes part of football. We had big chances, unusual situations but it's football, it's at least a 90-minute game. I'm sick of goals like this to be honest, you can not play football and do that. They scored too easily'.

'But as long as we concede goals like we conceded today, then it is quite hard'.

However, Jurgen Klopp's charges were blunt in attack, with Dominic Solanke and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, in his first start for the Merseysiders, failing to make the most of decent chances.

However, Klopp revealed it had always been the plan for the Brazilian - who only made his first club appearance of the season last week - to be withdrawn at the midway stage.

"We will see how it is in January but, in this moment, I feel comfortable when I think about different opportunities to use the players and to bring the players in different games", he said.

"Forty-five minutes was the limit".

A night of wholesale changes for the 11 Premier League sides in action produced one upset with top flight Stoke City losing 2-0 at second-tier Bristol City.
