Liverpool have sometimes struggled to get results over the line this season but Klopp blamed a lack of experience and said they would do well to follow the example of Chelsea, who have dropped just eight points from winning positions this term compared to the Reds, who have dropped 15.

“Probably [if it was] Chelsea, for example, the opponent would not have the ball three times in the last 20 minutes I think,” Klopp said.

“Yes, we don’t have this experience. Probably you need things like last night to get more experience than this, even though [the result] was not that good.

“On the other hand, we’ve probably still scored the most goals in the Premier League so far [66 – five more than Arsenal], so it’s part of the game that we try to create moments all the time. We have to get more experience in this, for sure.”
