Klopp urges Reds to improve decision-making in final third
He added: “When we go in the box we have to be better. It is only important you are always able to make the right decision at the right time because they have the quality to finish and create chances. We created chances against a deep defending opponent [Rubin] and we had many situations where we were close a and close is better than far away.
“This is, after this short time [working with him], pretty normal. Sometimes you have to show them when to shoot and where the other options are and then the boys have to decide by themselves. I am still cool with the situation.a
Liverpool FC play Southampton next, at Anfield in Jurgen Klopp’s first home game at Anfield in the league.
The Anfield outfit will be hoping to win their first game under the German when they take on the Saints, and if that is to happen, the attackers must up their game.
Liverpool do continue to miss key players in Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino in attack, but Benteke is expected to be fit in time to play on Sunday.
