Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confessed that his team struggled to get the 2-0 win against Midtjylland in the Champions League on Tuesday night at the Old Trafford.
According to him, it was a hectic game as his team was unable to calm down the pressure until the final sound of the whistle.
It would be safe to state that the Reds wouldn’t have struggled with if the likes of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino were in the starting XI for the game as they only had a second-half share of the game.
Last weekend goal scorer Diogo Jota was also on the score sheet as he drove home the opener before Mohamed Salah came from the bench to seal the three points from the spot.

The German boss in his post-match interview with the club’s official website said “We made a lot of changes and it’s my job to decide obviously, I have all the information about what the boys did.
“But for different reasons again, the game was really tricky. They pressed like crazy, they made a really hectic game of it and we couldn’t calm it down in the decisive moments” he said
Liverpool played without most of their first-team players and that is a major reason to give for their struggling but it would have been unacceptable if they had suffered a defeat in that game at Anfield.
Losing Fabinho to injury is another testimony that they really had a hectic game and that sends a message to the former Borussia Dortmund boss on how he must manage his squad to be able to compete as their injury list continue to grow.
The January transfer window should bring relief to the Liverpool team as it will present manager Jurgen Klopp with the opportunity of reinforcing his team for the second half of the season.
