Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was critical of his team’s attitude after the Reds’ 2-2 draw at Fulham on Saturday – and also claimed that a ‘dry pitch’ at Craven Cottage did not help.
Klopp’s side twice came from behind in their Premier League opener after Aleksandar Mitrovic netted a brace for the west Londoners, but the Reds had to settle for a point following a goal from debutant Darwin Nunez and a late leveller scored by Mohamed Salah.
“The best thing about the game is the result,” Klopp told BT Sport in his post-match interview.
“[It was] a really bad game. How can that happen? The attitude was not right in the beginning. We tried to react after 15 minutes. The pitch was dry, stuff like this. Really difficult.”
Liverpool also suffered an injury blow as Spain midfielder Thiago Alcantara limped off early in the second half.
“It looks like a bad hamstring,” Klopp said.
