Jurgen Klopp left stunned by off-air question during Liverpool interview


Jurgen Klopp was left stunned when it dawned on him just how bad Liverpool’s home form has been the season.

Anfield used to be something of a fortress, with the Reds previously going 68 games unbeaten at home.

But Liverpool only recorded their first home win of 2021 – having gone eight matches without a win at Anfield – when they ran out 2-1 winners over Aston Villa this Saturday.

Klopp was delighted with the result and pleased to see Trent Alexander-Arnold answering his critics by scoring the winning goal.

And while the German knew it had been a while since Liverpool had taken three points from a home game, it left him a little shocked to learn just how long it had been.

During an interview with LFCTV, Klopp could be heard talking to a member of the camera crew.

Klopp said: “When was the last game we won and we had an interview? Here!”

The man responded: “Against Spurs before Christmas,” prompting the Liverpool manager to burst out laughing in sheer disbelief and repeat: “Before Christmas?!

One of the LFCTV crew members then joked: “Happy New Year!” as Klopp asked again: “Really?! It was Spurs?!”

Liverpool have struggled this season by their usual standards under Klopp and have made a poor attempt at defending their title.

But the sixth-placed Reds have won their past three matches on the trot in the Premier League and are closing in on West Ham in fourth.

The Hammers, who beat Leicester City 3-2 on the weekend, are only three points ahead of Liverpool now with just seven games left to play this season.
