Jurgen Klopp feels bad luck prevented Liverpool from Champions League victory at Spartak Moscow

Posted: 27 September 2017 Time: 08:47

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes only bad luck prevented his side from taking maximum points after Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Spartak Moscow finished 1-1.

The Reds had to come from behind in midweek to register a second straight draw in Group E as Philippe Coutinho’s first-half goal cancelled out Fernando’s early opener in Russia.

And, speaking after the game, Klopp said: "We are not the luckiest team in world football but we did very well in creating chances against a defensively-oriented team.

"The free-kick was not a foul, we won the ball clearly. It was a brilliant free-kick and we could have created more chances - that is the crazy thing. The only thing is to go through the group and that is still possible for us.

"We would have won both games (they also drew against new Group E leaders Sevilla) but didn't and that is our fault. There were a lot of good things, (but) it was not a good result.

"In some moments we performed very well, in other moments we didn't perform very well. We did not take our chances."
