Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has admitted that his team had “problems” in the 4-2 defeat of Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Villans didn’t make the win easy for the Reds as 17-yea-old Louie Barry ensure the first half ended 1-1 despite Liverpool’s multiple attempts on goal.

However, Klopp’s men ran riot in the second half with three goals in the space of five minutes in the second half with goals from Georginio Wijnaldum 60′, Sadio Mané (4′, 63′) and Mohamed Salah 65′.

“The kids did really well – that’s good. We had football problems. We needed a little bit longer but then it was completely clear,” he told BT Sport.

“Problems in passing and moving. Too many on the wrong side of the ball – not enough recoveries of passes. We had chances and shot the ball directly at the goalie – we changed it in the second half.

“It was rusty but better in the second half. Against Southampton [1-0 defeat] from the first second they were more on the pitch but that was not the case today.”
