Jurgen Klopp expressed his apologies after Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League took a big blow with a loss to Everton.

This defeat at Goodison Park was the first time Liverpool had lost there since 2010, with Everton winning 2-0.

As a result, Liverpool is now in second place in the standings, three points behind Arsenal and one point ahead of Manchester City, who have two games in hand.

Asked whether Liverpool can still win the title with just four games left to play, Klopp told Sky Sports: “Arsenal and Manchester City must have a very bad moment.

“I don’t know. I can only apologise for today to the people. We should have done better but we didn’t and that’s why we lost.”

Liverpool had a lot of possession but struggled to break through Everton’s defense.

Klopp acknowledged that his team did not perform well and that the game turned into a series of free-kicks, which worked in Everton’s favor.

“We let it happen, let it become exactly the game Everton wanted, two goals from set pieces,” he said.

“We created a lot and didn’t score, and then second half, emotions, we are in a rush, not really clear enough. It was free-kick after free-kick. That was part of the story. But we weren’t good enough.

“Obviously it’s not the greatest moment we are in but you fight through and use your moments to get the momentum back… we tried but it was not easy and in the end it’s not good enough.

“If you win you can have 500 reasons and when you lose it’s just not good enough, that’s how it is.”

Next Saturday, Liverpool will be playing against West Ham.
