Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool humiliation vs Brighton was his ‘worst game ever’

Jurgen Klopp said he cannot remember a worst performance from one of his teams after Liverpool slipped to a 3-0 defeat against Brighton in the Premier League.

The veteran boss, who took charge of 270 games at Mainz and 317 at Borussia Dortmund before his 408 at Liverpool, says the Amex display has stood out in his memory.

With Solly March scoring twice before Danny Welbeck made it three, Liverpool's defence, midfield and attack have all been criticised on social media.

Klopp, speaking BBC Match of the Day, said: "Bad. Really bad. I can't remember a worse game. It's not difficult maybe. Brighton were the better team, it was well deserved. They played really well.

"It was a very organised team against a not very organised team. We gave the ball away, the spaces were too big and we couldn't push up. That is obviously not good, especially against a super well-drilled side like Brighton.

"They got more confident and we did the opposite. I can imagine they are very happy because it was a great performance and we made it too easy in too many moments.

"I had an idea to change the formation which was to try help the team. That was the idea. But we never did it properly. We were always a bit in between and that's the worst thing you can do.

"We could have done better but we didn't and that's why I looked the way it did.

"We need to be creative with the options we have. What I saw today from my team was that they were not really convinced by it. That's it."

The Reds sit 10 points behind Erik ten Hag's Manchester United and a full 16 behind leaders Arsenal who have a game in hand against rivals Tottenham.

Liverpool remain in the hunt for FA Cup and Champions League glory away from the league campaign, taking on Wolves in a replay and Real Madrid respectively.

Klopp retains the support of fans having led the club to Champions League and Premier League glory, as well as League Cup and FA Cup triumphs last time out.
