Liverpool labelled ‘shambolic’ for Brighton error and Jurgen Klopp will be fuming

Liverpool made hard work of their Premier League match with Brighton on Saturday.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will have been angry with his team for their “shambolic” defending which allowed Brighton to score on Saturday, claims Chris Kamara. Liverpool beat Brighton 2-1 at Anfield but it was Lewis Dunk’s goal for the visitors that grabbed a lot of headlines. Dunk scored a quickly taken free-kick, catching Reds substitute goalkeeper Adrian off guard just moments after he came on following the sending off of Alisson.
Liverpool’s win moved them 11 points clear of second-placed Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.
But Dunk’s goal gave them a nervy end to the match and Kamara says Klopp would have been annoyed by his side’s sloppiness.
“I’m looking at this free kick and this is the team that might actually win the league this season,” Kamara said on Goals on Sunday.
“Right, and this for me is shambolic. Jurgen Klopp will get them in and have a real pop at them.
“Right, let’s have a look at it first and foremost. They’re all arguing amongst themselves, look at them. Nobody is looking at the ball at this particular time.
“Sadio Mane is the man who’s lining up the wall - he’s in the wrong position. Look at him on the edge of the D there, he’s in the wrong position, he’s at a wrong angle to line up the wall.
“Look at the goalkeeper Adrian saying ‘Get across, everybody needs to get across’.
“Now look at the wall and there’s five Liverpool players in there, actually [Georginio] Wijnaldum is stood behind them, so this is quite incredible.

“Look at Lewis Dunk now, he’s having a word with the referee Martin Atkinson, ‘Can I take this free kick?’.
“Martin has said to him: ''No, you must wait until I blow the whistle’. So let’s take it on to where he’s about to blow the whistle.
“Right, he moves on now and he’s about to put his whistle to his mouth, now there it is - they’re still arguing amongst themselves Liverpool, they’re not even looking at the ball.
“I found this amazing when I watched this this morning, I really, really did.
“Everybody sitting here is probably not really warm yet, but imagine you go there in shorts, a really thin shirt and some gloves which are not made for keeping you warm.
“Some people let the free-kick happen like that and then you look a little bit silly in that moment, but that's what you have to accept.
“We kept on fighting and Adrian especially helped us a lot with two really, really good saves and crosses he caught and stuff like this.
“With his cold feet, he couldn't shoot the ball as far as he wanted!
“In the end, it kept it a bit interesting but it's only important that we won the game and that's what we did, so I am really pleased about that.”
