After suffering a 2-0 defeat to newcomers Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said the team had a lot left to learn.
After a thrilling 4-3 win for the Reds over Arsenal in their season opener, they suffered a heavy defeat to Burnley after goals by Sam Vokes and Andre Gray. Liverpool dominated possession, seeing 70 percent of the ball, but failed to get on the scoresheet.
“There were a lot of moments that were really good without us having the last punch in the decisive moments,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “It’s a process.
“We have to go and we know this. We’ve done a lot of work and I think you saw it.
“We have to accept how it was today. We have a lot to learn and it was nothing about attitude.
“We made our mistakes and that’s obvious and we passed the ball in the wrong moments. But we had absolutely no luck and they had a little bit around the goals.
“But they deserved the win with a very passionate performance. We tried our best but it wasn’t enough.”
Burnley manager Sean Dyche called the win over Liverpool a day where the whole town could be proud of.
“It was a day we can all be proud of,” Dyce told the club’s official website.
“It was a big, important game and you always want to get that first, important win on the table. We’ve done that against a very good side.
“I’m particularly pleased for the fans. They knew it was going to be tough this season but they are sticking with us and we are going to need that, but I think it’s good when days come around like this, for the whole town.”
