Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has noted that his team lost and crashed in the FA Cup to Manchester United on Sunday night due to some decisive mistakes made by his players.


Liverpool took the lead in the 18th minute, through Mohamed Salah, but Mason Greenwood made it 1-1 for United just before half-time.


Then Marcus Rushford, capitalizing on Rhys Williams’ error, put United ahead and Salah shot home his second of the night to make it 2-2.


But the home team was anxious not to allow the game go into overtime with Bruno Fernandes shooting home a free kick from the edge of the box in the 78th to send United into the next round of the competition.


And the Liverpool manager feels that some of his lads’ mistakes provided ample opportunity for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team to steal the night.


“It is not what we wanted, so it is frustrating. If you want to win tonight, you have to play at your absolute top, “Klopp told reporters after the entertaining game.


“The start of the game was good, but then we made decisive mistakes; Around the first goal United scored, we had too many options offensively and no protection.

“We lost the ball and then there was a counterattack. It was not the first counterattack in the game, so we have to improve that.


Liverpool are yet to record a win this year and will look to breaking the deadlock when they travel to face Tottenham on Thursday, 28, in the Premier League.
