Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has insisted that Brighton defeated his team 1-0 in the Premier League on Wednesday night at Anfield because his players lost too many easy balls.

Klopp explained that Brighton was fresher than Liverpool and did more good things than the Premier League champions during the encounter.

Steven Alzate scored the only goal of the match in the 56th minute, to give Brighton all three points against Liverpool.

The result sees Klopp’s men drop down to the fourth position on the Premier League table following Leicester City’s win away at Fulham.

“First and foremost, Brighton won the game and rightly so, [it was] deserved,” Klopp told a post-match press conference.

“They were fresher than us tonight and did more good things than we did.

“We lost too many easy balls. The best way to defend Brighton is to keep the ball, to play football yourself, and when we did that, we had control at least but didn’t create a lot.”

He added: “I said now plenty of times in all the interviews outside, for me the team looked tonight – and it’s long ago we looked like this – fatigued, mentally fatigued, and that leads to not the best legs as well.

“It was a tough week, and today we were not fresh enough, that means then [not] good enough to break the formation of Brighton. In the end, they scored a goal, had other chances, we kind of as well, but they scored, and that’s why they deserved to win.”
