Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want a repeat of Liverpool’s poor start to the season

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made no fuss about his side’s slow start to the Premier League season but is keen to avoid a repeat.

The first half of last weekend’s 2-2 draw at Fulham, in which they twice came from behind, was such a poor performance that the Reds manager initially criticized the players’ attitude.

However, Klopp is confident the side will have the news by the time they take on Crystal Palace at Anfield on Monday night.

“Addressed? Right after the game, of course,” Klopp said when asked if the matter had been dealt with in detail.

“With my English I’m not sure if ‘attitude’ is the right one, but we had a slow start, I didn’t like the start at all.

“I saw the attitude back then to fight back, but that’s another thing. It’s better you have a high-intensity, highly focused, lively start to a soccer game than not.

“So if I make a big fuss about it now and talk about it every day, imagine that? That would be weird too.

“We’re trying to make sure we’re ready for this game. We were mostly ready and we have to be that again, nothing else.

“Having a slow start doesn’t mean you have to start slow all the time or you’ll never do it again, but it’s a sign — use it as information, change it, and go from there.”

One of the positive aspects of last weekend’s game was Darwin Nunez coming on from the bench, who scored and provided Mohamed Salah with an assist.

The Uruguay international had already proven himself as a substitute, winning a penalty and scoring in the FA Community Shield and Klopp has liked what he has seen between Nunez and Salah so far.

“It’s definitely a cool partnership,” added Klopp.

“It’s two players who are determined to score goals and to be in the crucial areas – I mean behind the line, wherever the line is.

“It is very helpful. Mo is in a really good moment and Darwin is settling in.”

Klopp admits he has no qualms about the way his side attack.

“I think Luis (Diaz) had two chances, one was I think or a crossbar and then got blocked in another situation so a little bit of luck and then he would score and that would give him massive too help.

“But other than that, this department wasn’t our problem last weekend.”
