“We stopped playing football”- Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has described his side’s three-goal lead slip to draw 3-3 with Sevilla in the UCL on Tuesday night as “stopped playing football” in the second half.The Reds missed out on the chance to secure their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League after a second-half disappointing display at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.Klopp’s side went into half-time 3-0 up courtesy of two goals from Roberto Firmino and one from Sadio Mane before Sevilla snatched a comeback after the break.Goals from Ben Yedder who got a brace, his second goal coming from the spot after ex-teammate Alberto Moreno caused a foul, before Guido Pizarro scored deep into injury time after picking up a loose clearance from a corner-kick, which Klopp was unhappy about.“It’s a very good first half and not that good second half,” Klopp told BT Sport. “We stopped playing football in the second half. We let them come back in the game. With this crowd behind their back, things like this can happen.“We did it already the other way around. You like this when you can change the game and come back in the game. When you are the winning team then you should avoid it, and we didn’t.“We have a real weapon and that’s playing football. We didn’t do it in the second half until we conceded the second goal. After that, we came back and had our chances a little bit. We didn’t use them, so they could do what they did in the last minute.”
