Andy Robertson has admitted that Liverpool were ‘unsatisfactory’ after their FA Cup winners were eliminated.
Jürgen Klopp’s side suffered their second loss to Brighton in two weeks.
Liverpool are eliminated in both cups and are ninth in the Premier League, 10 points behind the top four. The only remaining trophy chances are the Champions League, where they will face reigning champions Real Madrid in the round of 16.
An angry Robertson apologized to the club’s fans, saying “this season hasn’t been good enough”. I wanted to start again from the new year. If anything, it’s getting worse.
More than “finger” can express. You can see the lack of confidence in front of the goal and the fact that the defense is still a little open.
You have to regain your “confidence”. I feel sorry for the fans. They did an incredible job today and we let them down again.”
From the beginning to the end, both teams had chances and I think it was a true cup match.
“We were a little bit better than two weeks ago, but we’re out of the cup and it’s frustrating. We have to start winning games. Easy to say, hard to fix.”
Liverpool took the lead in the 30th minute with a goal from Harvey Elliott, but Louis Dunk managed to get one back by a fluke, and in stoppage time the excellent Mitoma succeeded in winning with excellent control and composure.
When Robertson’s fierce words hit Klopp, the German replied, “Not 100% true, but not 100% wrong.” Of course, when I come back from the suspension of the World Cup, I will do my best with a fresh start. ”
“And so far it’s not happening properly. But we have to keep working. Today we had a good performance, a good moment.
“The game two weeks ago was pretty much the worst game of my life,” he had in mind. So this one is better, much better.
“But we still conceded two goals from set pieces.
“But we didn’t win the last game here. No one would be surprised if we won the game today.
Mitoma signed from Japan’s Kawasaki Frontale for just €2.8m in 2021, having spent the previous season on loan at Belgian side Union Saint-Geoises, Albion’s sister team.
He has scored six goals in 19 appearances for the Seagulls this season, including his impressive stop-the-time strike.
Of the magical goal, Dunk said: “I’m happy to have him on my side. I hate chasing him. He’s a top player and came out of nowhere.”
Roberto De Zerbi was happy with the result but felt he could have played better.
