Klopp admits he is at ‘lowest point’ after Liverpool lose at home to Fulham

Jurgen Klopp admitted he is at his 'lowest point' after watching his Liverpool side slump to a 1-0 home defeat against Fulham.

Mario Lemina's strike before-half time lifted Scott Parker's men to within touching distance of safety and condemned the Reds to a sixth straight Anfield loss.

Liverpool are now five points adrift of Chelsea in fourth and facing an uphill challenge to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Klopp's decision to make seven changes backfired spectacularly on the German boss, who admitted he was at his lowest ebb as Reds boss in a revealing interview after the match.

He told BBC Sport: "I would wish to say no but yes it is. That’s not a problem. I don’t always have to have the best times.

"This team is an extreme team. We were extremely successful and now we have an extreme situation as well but we will fight through."

Klopp also paid tribute to opposite number, Parker, whose Fulham side have now only lost twice in their last ten Premier League matches.

“The obvious thing [was missing] a goal and a clean sheet. It was always clear that Fulham would cause us big problems with the situation they are in and the one we are in."

“It was clear we had to adapt. We started quite well, we were direct and Mo [Salah] cause them problems but we didn’t finish the situations off. Then Fulham were good."

Liverpool started the match with a back-line of Neco Williams, Nathaniel Phillips, Rhys Williams and Andy Robertson, which Klopp believes didn't help his side.
