Liverpool supporters react negatively to defender’s comments

In the aftermath of a defeat, you can be sure that one of the players on the losing team will tell the media that they will learn from the loss, and attempt to bounce back in their next match.

That was the case for Liverpool defender Joel Matip, who was speaking after the Reds suffered a 4-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool have actually now conceded 16 times in their nine Premier League matches this season, and they are down in ninth position in the table after an inconsistent start to the 2017-18 campaign.

There is no question that Jurgen Klopp’s side have talent in the final third of the field, but it does appear that their leaky defence will once again cost them the chance to enjoy a successful season.

In fairness to Matip, he was one of few Liverpool players that fronted up to the media after the Spurs defeat, knowing fully well that he would be in the firing line.

The club’s supporters are just not interested in empty words, however, as they look to see an improvement on the field.
