• Aston Villa demolished Liverpool 7-2 in their recent Premier League matchup
  • Jurgen Klopp said his team “made massive mistakes” in their performance
  • Liverpool is set to face Everton in its next Premier League match

Aston Villa handed Liverpool a humiliating 7-2 defeat in their Premier League matchup on Sunday. Jurgen Klopp was not pleased with his club’s outcome as he shared that they committed mistakes throughout the match.

Several players also stepped up for Villa and managed to get around the Reds’ defense. Ollie Watkins was the top scorer for the Lions as he tallied a hat-trick.

"Yes, I saw it. So it is easy to believe because I was here. First of all, you have to say that Villa did very well. They were very physical, very smart and very direct, we were not,” Klopp told BBC.

"We had big chances which we did not use, but when you concede seven I’m not sure you can say it would have been 7-7," he added. "We made too many mistakes and massive ones obviously. It started with the first goal and around the goals, we made massive mistakes."

Despite Mohamed Salah scoring both points for Liverpool, the rest of Aston Villa was too much to handle for Klopp’s squad. John McGinn and Ross Barkley contributed goals of their own, while Jack Grealish added a brace for the Villans.

"We lost balls in the wrong area and did not protect properly. It looked like we lost the plot after it went to 1-0. It is not an excuse. Normally you can be 1-0 down and do the stuff you want to do. We created but did not protect ourselves properly so each ball we lost was a massive counterattack," Klopp continued.

The Liverpool boss praised how well Aston Villa played but at the same time acknowledged that he and his team have to take responsibility for the unfavorable outcome.

"That is why we conceded and three goals were deflected. It’s unlucky but it is not a coincidence because it means it was not a proper block. There is nobody to blame apart from me and us," Klopp pointed out.

This loss puts Liverpool at fifth place in the Premier League standings as the club suffers its first defeat in four matches. The Reds are looking to recover from their overwhelming defeat in their next match on Oct. 17 against Everton.
