Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has asked his players to put the loss to Watford behind and restart again. Liverpool lost for the first time this season in the league when a rampant Watford side put three past them on Saturday.
The German tactician lauded his side for the long unbeaten run that stretched to 44 matches but asked them to adapt quickly as there is still a long way to go before the season ends.
“Sometimes a little knock is important. So I don’t see anything negative in it. From time to time if you are not good enough, you need to see the effect. Not good enough-what happens then? So restart.
“Maybe the longer the run goes maybe it becomes more important. But I didn’t see that. Now it is over. We can start again with whatever we did before, and we will,” Klopp is quoted by UK tabloids.
Klopp further asserted that he is sure his side will react after the setback and rubbished the thought that they were influenced by the outside world.
“You cannot win the number of games the boys have done if they are easily influenced by the outside world, and we will see how they react.
“But I don’t know because I’ve never won 18 games in a row and didn’t lose 44 the first time in my life. How they react we shall see,” he added.
Liverpool resume action on Tuesday with a fifth-round FA Cup match against Chelsea at Anfield.
