SHOWS: LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (SEPTEMBER 13, 2017) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. LIVERPOOL MANAGER JUERGEN KLOPP WALKING INTO NEWS CONFERENCE ROOM 2. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER, JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "Most important of football is really creating chances and we did that in different situations and I know a lot of people will say counter-attack - yes if you, the chances we had after counter-attacks - could we have scored more? Yes, so we know we have to improve in this but that is not an illness which you can change it. We work on this like we work on all the other parts of the game for sure." STORY: Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp put a brave face on after watching his side throw away a lead with another poor defensive display in their Champions League encounter with Sevilla at Anfield on Wednesday (September 13). The Premier League side, competing in only their second Champions League group stage in eight years, had plenty of chances to win the game after coming from behind, but defensive lapses -- and a penalty miss from Roberto Firmino -- cost them two points as Sevilla salvaged a 2-2 draw. Both opposition goals came from defensive mistakes. Klopp, whose side lost 5-0 at Manchester City on Saturday, said he was happy with most of what he saw but rued the two goals conceded. "Most important of football is really creating chances and we did that in different situations and I know a lot of people will say counter-attack - yes if you, the chances we had after counter-attacks - could we have scored more? Yes, so we know we have to improve in this but that is not an illness which you can change it. We work on this like we work on all the other parts of the game for sure," said the German. The German also denied playing a part in the sending-off of Sevilla coach Eduardo Berizzo. .
