Klopp "angry, surprised" by Liverpool defeat to Swansea

Liverpool almost grabbed an equaliser in the fourth and final minute of stoppage time, when Roberto Firmino headed against the post.

Liverpool hadn't lost in the league since 22 October when they were humiliated 4-1 at Tottenham.

"We are frustrated. I'm frustrated, I'm angry, because it's not necessary what we did today".

"They can say whatever they want, at one point I turned to him and said, 'Please!'"

"I am more frustrated about the performance than the result", added Klopp, whose side remain fourth, three points behind third-placed Chelsea.

"We didn't keep the positions we wanted to be in".

Alfie Mawson scored the game's only goal in the first half following a corner and Carvalhal had identified the set-piece as an area Swansea could hurt Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah buzzed between Swansea's defensive lines, playing clever passes and shooting as soon as he got a sight of goal as Liverpool chased an equaliser, but all too often the Merseysiders fired either high or wide of the target. But we can not get the points back.

Eric Bautheac pulled one back with three minutes left but the home side are left reeling to their worst continental stint this year.

"The game was the opposite of what we wanted". That happens from time to time and it's never the right moment and like it should be.

"Swansea are fighting for their life and we've no problem with that. Like a Formula 1 auto", Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal told Sky Sports after a win that took his side level on 20 points with second-bottom West Bromwich Albion and three off the safety zone.

The Portuguese has instilled real belief that Swansea can escape relegation and he believes their condition is looking a lot rosier after this shock win. "We are not out of the hospital, but we are out of emergency and we can accept visits".

"But because of the first-half we weren't that secure or confident in what we were doing".

His analogies did not stop there. I said Liverpool is a really top team and they are a strong team but they are a Formula One, but if you put a Formula One into London in the traffic at 4pm it will not run very fast.

"But it is hard for a Formula One auto in 4pm London traffic to hit top speed".

"We did make some mistakes, but we blocked the dynamic of Liverpool and deserved this victory".
