Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp humbly exhibited an apologetic gesture towards the travelling fans after a humiliating defeat to Brighton on Saturday, January 14.

The Seagulls moved above their rivals of the day with an emphatic performance that saw them score three goals in the second half after the first half ended goalless.

Solly March scored a double, including an impressive second goal as Danny Welbeck scored his first Premier League goal of the season to confirm an emphatic victory.

Credit needs to go to Roberto de Zerbi, whose team was thoroughly dominant, and there was no point where Liverpool looked comfortable, per BBC.

A mixture of defensive frailities and a lack of cutting edge up front from Liverpool meant Brighton barely had any threats, and the three points was there for the taking.

Liverpool lined up in a 4-3-1-2 formation which was led by winter signing Cody Gakpo and Mohammed Salah, but the pair struggled to find chemistry between them.

After the game, Klopp remained on the pitch briefly as he gestured towards the away stand in apology.

The German also bore responsibility in his post match comments, saying:

“It’s fully my responsibility, we have to sort these problems. We have limited options at the moment”
