Klopp says Liverpool deserve the loss against Toulouse

Liverpool were second best in virtually all the decisive moments against Toulouse on Thursday and fully deserved their 3-2 Europa League defeat, manager Juergen Klopp said.

Liverpool, who beat the French side 5-1 at home last month, remain top of Group E with nine points from four matches, leading Toulouse by two points with two games to go.

“It was well-deserved to lose because they won pretty much all the decisive challenges and battles,” he told reporters.

“We have too many situations where we should have won the ball, but we didn’t.”

It was the second disappointing result in a week for Liverpool after Sunday’s draw at Luton Town, but Klopp said there had been no lack of intensity from his team.

“No, I am not concerned. In the end, we were intense; we threw everything in,” he added.

“But the problem is that in a football game, you have to do the decisive things at the right moment to do them right. We cannot concede the goals we conceded again.”

Liverpool midfielder Alexis Mac Allister was denied a late equalizer due to handball, a decision Klopp protested with the referee.

“I only saw the video back then, and for me, it’s not a handball,” Klopp said.

“The ball goes to the chest, and then I don’t see any contact with the arm, to be honest. Maybe they had a different picture than I had”.
