Jurgen Klopp said he will not “make a negative” of Liverpool’s season as their hopes of a record points tally fell by the wayside at Arsenal.
The Reds were beaten 2-1 at the Emirates as the Gunners secured their first Premier League win over the Anfield side since April 2015.
Two rare mistakes from Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker turned the game around after Sadio Mane had given the visitors the lead and the result means the Premier League champions will fall short in their hopes of breaking Manchester City’s 100-point tally set back in 2018.
Klopp, though, declared himself uninterested in such accolades and said he cannot possibly find a frustrating angle from a campaign that has seen Liverpool win their first league title in 30 years in record time.
The German did, however, express his disappointment at the performance in North London as Alexandre Lacazette and Reiss Nelson condemned the Reds to their third reverse of the season.
“I am disappointed with the result, of course,” Klopp said. “I am OK with big parts of the performance and it is one of the better games we have played here.
