Jurgen Klopp admits disappointment as Liverpool is knocked out of FA Cup



Jurgen Klopp has admitted he didn’t feel good watching his Liverpool side lose to Brighton.

The Reds were knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth round on Sunday, losing 2-1 to Roberto de Zerbi’s side with Kaoru Mitoma scoring the winner in injury time.

It was the second time the Seagulls had beaten Liverpool in as many weeks, although Klopp praised his side for playing better than in the Premier League encounter.

“We came here a few weeks ago after a game when we weren’t even close,” Klopp told the BBC.

“Today we played a better game but we conceded two goals from set pieces and it’s not allowed in any way.”

Mitoma is in good form for Brighton who have found new life under de Zerbi. He caused a lot of problems for Trent Alexander-Arnold on the Liverpool right during the game, but Klopp lamented the lack of support for the England full-back.
“Robbo was fine on the left because we helped him, but Trent didn’t get any support from the other side,” he said.
“Mitoma is really good, so of course it was difficult. We could have defended both goals better. The first takes a deflection, but we can probably block the shot. ‘He’s not feeling well. Over time we could see the positives, but we wanted to get to the next round. Congratulations to Brighton.’

Liverpool have recorded just one win in their last six matches in all competitions, a stark contrast to their success last season.

The following weekend Wolves meet in the Premier League, for the Merseyside derby against Everton the following week.
