Liverpool lost for the first time in 44 Premier League games at Watford, as the Hornets stunned the Reds with a devastating 3-0 win at the Vicarage Road on Sunday.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp spoke about recent disappointments in a meeting with his team, and maintained that there was no need to shout at his players who are having a phenomenal season, but insists Liverpool are ready to ‘strike back’ at Chelsea in the FA Cup clash at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
“There was no applause. They don’t come to me and say, ‘That was a great meeting boss’,” Klopp said.
“Of course, they want to strike back. This is an exceptional group of players. The situation we are in is special. Who can give us advice?
“We came through an incredible long period with incredible performances, sensational football, wonderful goals, great success – until this point.
“I am not a little bit in doubt about the character of the boys and I would be a real idiot if I would be to be honest because they deserve my trust, my faith and they don’t lose it after a bad game.”
