‘Defending is easier than attacking’ – Klopp wants to see ‘braver’ Liverpool

first_imgJurgen Klopp was pleased his side managed to score four goals on the way to beating Arsenal, but he wants to see defensive improvement from Liverpool.The Reds beat the Gunners 4-3 courtesy of Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane strikes and a Philippe Coutinho double, but they still struggled to deal with keeping the ball out of their own net.This is a problem which has plagued the Merseyside club for far too long, and although Klopp has bought in players to shore up his back-line, goalkeeper Simon Mignolet was the only reason all three points were picked up.Klopp was pleased his attackers showed their full potential, but he believes his players should be good enough to avoid conceding three goals in 90 minutes.The German said: “Four goals scored is wonderful, but if you are good enough to score four goals at Arsenal, you’ve have to be good enough to avoid three goals.“I know defending is easier than attacking, but we have the skills for attacking and we need to plan for defending.“Four goals are the definition of brave, but the defending in the first half was the opposite of being brave.”last_img
