  3. Klopp responsible for Moreno performance

    Liverpool v Chelsea (Saturday 17:30 GMT)


    Alberto Moreno

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he is "100% responsible" for full-back Alberto Moreno's criticised performances against Sevilla.

    Moreno gave away a penalty in the side's Champions League fixture on Tuesday as Sevilla - the Spaniard's former club - came from 3-0 down to draw 3-3.

    “I had a talk, of course, to Alberto and I am really happy about his shape, I am really happy about his performances," Klopp said.

    “Yes, I know in this game it was obviously [not his best] and that’s then really my responsibility. I could have done different things and obviously it was difficult in Seville with all the circumstances. Everyone was talking to him like talking to him like a family member.

    “[If you lose] one, two or three per cent of concentration and come a little bit too late and that’s how it started.

    "My response would have been to think about the line-up or change or change earlier or whatever. It’s not the player to blame, I am 100% responsible for that."
