Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the 2022-23 Premier League campaign is a 'brutal season' after seeing his Reds suffer their fourth loss in the English top flight.

Liverpool were looking to build on their 3-0 away win over Ajax in the Champions League but ended up registering back-to-back defeats in the league.

The Reds were whipped 2-1 at Anfield [a loss for the first time since March 2021] as Crysencio Summerville's 89th-minute strike went past goalkeeper Alisson after Mohamed Salah cancelled out Rodrigo's opener in the first half.

Liverpool currently sit in the ninth spot in the table with just four wins from 12 games so far this season.

However, the German boss Klopp insists that "we have to fight through this and we will."

'A brutal season for us, we have to fight through.'

Klopp told BBC's MOTD: "We play every three days. It is a brutal season for us because we have had injuries from the first day and some players we have had to rush back.

"But we have to fight through this and we will.

"So many things are unlike us in this moment. I am sorry it is like this, but that is the situation. I am not sure how deep you can dig, but we will. It is like it is and we will work on solutions.

"We have to have a look at this game first, try to understand it a bit more, and go from there."

'There are a lot of other worries.'

During his post-match conference on Saturday night, Klopp was asked whether he is concerned about the Reds' chances of finishing in the top four and he replied as the club's official website quoted: "Yeah, that's actually not my main worry in the moment because there are a lot of other worries but yeah, of course.

"I am at least not that dumb that I don't know distances and I know who is up there, but you cannot qualify for the Champions League if you play as inconsistent as we do at the moment.

So, as I said, we have to fix that and we will see where we end up. We all know that everything is possible, or a lot of things are possible, but for that, you have to win football games and we didn't do that often enough yet."
