Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made a plea to Anfield fans after defeat at PSG tonight.

The result leaves the Reds needing to beat Napoli at Anfield to be sure of reaching the knockout phase.

Klopp declared: “The start was like what we expected, it was very wild and intense and they took all the risks. They scored twice by winning the second ball. We still had to stay in the game, but as soon as we had a bit of control, you saw the game wasn’t decided. We tried everything but we didn’t have enough clear chances. We had two or three promising situations but with one or two decisions they would have been.

“When a game starts like that it is difficult to gain confidence so it was never our game. Another little hurdle we had to overcome was the 500,000 disruptions in the second half and the referee still thinks he did everything right. We are one of the fairest teams in England but tonight we looked like butchers. We have to take the result but it still feels a bit rubbish and now we have to use Anfield one more time.”

On the foul for James Milner’s penalty, he added: “I saw the penalty, it was inside the box but he didn’t even give a foul. Then I saw the Marco Verratti foul and wow. We were not really good, but it was a tight game in a really important competition. We had five or six yellow cards which is crazy.

“It is our job to take it, but I am still a bit emotional about it. We will fly back and prepare for the derby. Then on the 11 December we have a proper final at Anfield.”

After being told Liverpool can progress with a 1-0 victory, Klopp responded: “Good. We will score a goal and then final whistle will happen and we can go home.”
