Swansea stun Liverpool 1-0 to dent Merseysiders top four hopes

After ending Manchester City's unbeaten run in the last game week, Liverpool return to Premier League action tonight as they travel to Wales to take on struggling Swansea City.

"I'm more frustrated with the performance than the result and I'm angry because it was not a good game", Klopp said. "The result is always a result of the performance", the German told reporters. A commanding second half display got the Reds over the line, which marked the first game of the winning streak they are looking to extend to six games this week.

With Naby Keita already scheduled to come in from RB Leipzig in the summer, the Reds boss is prepared to wait for the key signings he wants rather than bring in less-suitable players to fill gaps - highlighted by the patience he was prepared to show to get Virgil van Dijk from Southampton.

He added: "They didn't need to play, they needed to fight and we did exactly what they wanted and their confidence grew".

"It's not exactly the way we wish to play, but my players were courageous, real gladiators at the end".

Bottom-placed Swansea City play host to Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool as Carlos Carvalhal looks to spark a mid-season revival for the Welsh outfit.

While RB Leipzig's lynchpin is vastly different from the Brazilian, they share the ability of playing the game in the future and beating multiple markers to make things happen. "With each minute the pressure increased and increased, so that was the situation".

The Reds stepped up their offence but they failed to turn their numerous chances into goals.

Baylor wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 13 points from turnovers , compared to Kansas State's 20. Heck, a case could even be made for Kansas being unbeaten in Big 12 play if Vick were playing closer to his ceiling.

The frustrations provoked Klopp into his verbal dispute with a Swansea fan around the hour mark and he admitted: "He was shouting t me all the time but I reacted".

"A point would have been OK for sure but that was not what we wanted before the game, it wouldn't have made the game any better". As a Liverpool player you can not perform one week and then two weeks not - we need to deliver consistently, every day and each game.

We take a look at the talking points from the game.

"I said to them that Liverpool is a really top team, and they are really, really very strong, but they are Formula One". We didn't keep the right positions we needed to, to cause them problems and didn't stretch them.

Klopp's side have been in imperious form recently, and ended Premier League leaders Manchester City's hopes of going through the season without losing following a thrilling 4-3 win at Anfield last time out. But we can not get the points back.

Just a week after beating the best side in the league, Liverpool lost to the worst. "Everybody is talking very positive, fantastic football football, the training week was outstanding; another little trap", Klopp continued.

"You can not think all the time about your mistakes because that makes no sense".

"It's clear where you start, where you have to be in each moment".
