How We Can Still Win EPL Title Despite Defeat To Everton  –Liverpool Boss, Klopp

Jurgen Klopp said Liverpool need a “crisis” at Arsenal and Manchester City to keep their Premier League title hopes alive after a 2-0 defeat in the Merseyside derby at Everton.

Goals by Jarrad Branthwaite and Dominic Calvert-Lewin sealed Everton’s first home derby win since 2010.

The win saw the Toffees end fears of relegation by moving them eight points clear of the bottom three.

“I don’t know why I need to answer the question, but I know how it works. You can see the table,” Klopp said, via ESPN.

“We need a crisis at Arsenal and City, so they need to not win games as we haven’t done tonight. Arsenal and City must have a very bad moment.

“I can only apologise for today to the people. We should have done better but we didn’t. Our performance wasn’t good enough and I am very disappointed.

“We defended the first goal three times and handed it to Everton on a plate and the second goal could probably have been defended better.

“And for us, each miss gave Everton more momentum. We never had it, but we gave them more.”

Klopp added that his would have to recover physically and mentally, but that the second part is difficult when you lose a game like this.

“West Ham will probably be waiting for us [on Saturday] and rubbing their hands, hoping that we turn up on one leg, but we have to recover for that,” Klopp said.
