Andy Robertson claimed that Liverpool are getting worse after Brighton eliminated them from the FA Cup, and he got a response from Jurgen Klopp.

Brighton eliminated FA Cup champion Liverpool with a last-second goal from Kaoru Mitoma At the Amex Stadium.

After Lewis Dunk canceled Harvey Elliott’s first-half goal, it looked like the fourth-round match would require a replay. However, Mitoma unexpectedly sent Brighton through.

Liverpool have now lost five of their past six games in all competitions. Yet another dismal result saw them drop to ninth in the Premier League.

Robertson claims that Klopp’s club has been “nowhere near good enough” this season although they were a quadruple threat last year.

Robertson’s comments

Robertson told ITV:

“It’s bitterly disappointing. We were more competitive than two weeks ago, but that didn’t take much.

We created chances and were more compact. But at the end of the day, we are out of the cup. At a club like Liverpool, fans expect a lot, and to lose with the last kick of the ball it’s disappointing.

We need to start winning games. It’s easy to say but harder to fix. This season has been nowhere near good enough. At the start of the year, we wanted a fresh start, but that hasn’t happened.

We’ve been worse. In the league, we haven’t been good enough, and now we’re out of both cups now. You can’t put your finger on one thing, it’s more than that. You can tell we’re not as confident in front of goal and in defence we are a wee bit open.

We had two clean sheets coming into today but then go and concede two goals. We need to get the confidence back, it’s easier said than done. And that’s how we will get results.

We need to do it quick, and we’re not. That it doesn’t help the fans, I’m sorry for them and the way we are putting on a show. We let them down again.”

The 55-year-old acknowledged there were some “excellent moments” from his team this time. But he also said Robertson had a point in his critical assessment.

Klopp not completely agreed with the comments of Robertson

When questioned about Robertson’s remarks, Klopp responded:

“It’s not 100 per cent true but it’s not 100 per cent wrong. Of course, we wanted a new start, that was clear after the World Cup.

So far it hasn’t happened properly, that’s true. That means we have to keep working, there’s nothing else you can do. There were good performances today as well, good moments which we need to build on.

We came here after a game a few weeks ago when we weren’t even close to ourselves.

Today we played a better game but we concede two goals from set-pieces and that is not allowed in any way. It doesn’t feel great.

In time we might see the positives but we wanted to get the next round. Congratulations to Brighton.”

When visiting Wolves on Saturday, Liverpool, which is 10 points outside of the Champions League spots, will want to pick up their winning streak.

As they pursue a European football goal, Brighton will find out their FA Cup fifth-round opponent on Monday evening. Brighton will then host Bournemouth.
