Jurgen Klopp admits the end of Liverpool’s 68-match unbeaten run at Anfield seems unbelievable as the defending Premier League champions lost 1-0 to Burnley.
Klopp’s side has lost at home in the league for the first time since Crystal Palace won at Anfield in April 2017.
Ashley Barnes gave Burnley the first win at Anfield since 1974 when he completed the 83rd-minute penalty after being fouled by Reds goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
“We lost the game which is pretty impossible but we did it,” Klopp said.
“That is my fault. It is my job to make sure the boys have the right feelings and confidence. That didn’t work out.
“We had the ball a lot and created some situations that are OK but our final decision is not right. I said the same thing last week. When something doesn’t work you must try harder, longer, and more often and make better decisions. It didn’t work tonight,” he said.
“It is always my fault. If I make clear which movements make sense because it will hurt the opponent and we don’t do that then I need to make it clearer. It is not that they don’t want it. It is difficult to play against these low blocks.
“It helps if you score the first goal but we didn’t. That changes the opponent. After not scoring for a long time not everybody feels confident.
“I never thought of us as free-scoring. I knew we had to work hard. It is not the first time or last time it will happen in football.
“We can only use this game for the next one. It is not because the players do not have the ability. Our decision-making is the problem. If we score in our big moments it changes things but we did not,” added Klopp.
Liverpool will need to find their rhythm soon with a number of huge matches coming up, starting with Manchester United in the fourth round of the FA Cup this Sunday.
