The Reds from Anfield could have gone into the half time break with a result of 3-1, but instead the settled for a final 2-2 against Sevilla.
Jürgen Klopp insists that Liverpool’s wastefulness will not become a burden in the future. The English side are looking at their Wednesday game against Sevilla as two points lost after wasting a number of serious opportunities.
While Liverpool turned things around in the first half after being one goal behind, Firmino missed from the penalty spot, striking the side post when he could have made the result 3-1 in favour of the home side. Sevilla took complete advantage of the situation as Joaquin Correa put things back to level in the second half and secured the point for the La Liga club.
Liverpoo’s manager was asked if not being able to score goals will once again become a problem for his men after they registered 24 shots to Sevilla’s 7, but still ended up with a draw. To that question the German replied:
“If we shoot that often and don’t score it’s probably a problem, but I don’t think it’ll be like this.” Jürgen said after Liverpool’s 2-2 draw as quoted by Goal.
“Usually in a game like this you will score more than we did. So nobody should rely on it that it’ll be like this. We know that we have to improve, but it’s not an illness.
“We’ll work on this how we work on all other parts of the game.
“I’m happy about a big part of the game. A lot of times when two good sides play against each other it’s kind of boring, this was the opposite.
“The main reason for that was the desire and passion of my team.
“We had more chances and that’s important that we created, even against a defensively organised side.
“A few players could not keep the levels from the first half. It’s not a physical thing, it’s a concentration issue. We see it. We’re in a process and we’ll have to work with them.”
