Liverpool suffered their first defeat after being unbeaten in 44 Premier League games as they lost 3-0 in an away game against Watford on Saturday, February 29.
After the game, the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp reacted on their first league defeat.
“They did exactly what they wanted to do, we did not. That’s how football works,” said Klopp.
“The first half was a tough one, a lot of second balls, running here and there, we had the ball a lot but we didn’t come in the right positions to cross, the right positions to finish, against a really good, organised side, with a top set-up for this game.
“You have to accept it, it’s not so easy, but it’s the proof we were not good enough tonight. It’s always very difficult.
“We have to accept if after. In the game you have to fight. We were 3-0 down but we still tried, there were no silly situations where somebody got frustrated and tried to kick someone.
“If you win good, if you lose, try to do it in the right manner and do it like a man.”
Liverpool continue leading the league table with 22-points ahead of second-placed Manchester City, who have played a game less.
