I Can’t Explain Losing to Liverpool—Conte



I Can’t Explain Losing to Liverpool—Conte

However it will be dubbed in the media, Liverpool’s win against Tottenham Hotspur is a something the Reds fan base will salivate on even though Spurs manager, Antonio Conte can’t explain how the win came about for his opponent.

Antonio Conte stated in his post match press conference that he is unable to explain his team’s 2-1 loss against Liverpool on Sunday.

Tottenham fell in front of their supporters after two goals from Mohamed Salah and one from Harry Kane.

Conte told Sky Sports afterwards:

“It’s difficult to explain the defeat. We deserved much more. But in the first half I was happy with the will, the desire. We put a lot of pressure on Liverpool and didn’t know why we were 2-0 down. In the second half we played very well, created many chances. The ‘keeper made good saves and we hit the post and crossbar.

“It’s a pity, it’s difficult to explain this type of game, the performance was good. Our fans can’t be happy when we lose but you have to be proud when your team fights from the start to the end.

“To have this type of performance in a difficult moment for us when we are managing many injuries, you need to find a new solution. Perisic and Kane as strikers was a good solution. To play with one striker, we would have delivered ourselves to Liverpool.

“We are a squad, we need to have all the players to be competitive in the Premier League and Champions League, three or four injuries make things difficult for us. But to have this kind of performance against Liverpool gave me satisfaction. It showed that our hard work worked.

“The fans tried to support from the start to the end, they appreciated the big effort the players gave. We attacked a lot in the second half, had a lot of chances. The result was unfair.”

While Antonio Conte struggles to explain the defeat, Liverpool will be hoping to gain another unexplainable victory against their next opponents.
