LIV 3-3 LEI: Tactical Mistakes Klopp Made Today As Liverpool Narrowly Qualified For The Semi-finals

Leicester City traveled to Merseyside to play Liverpool in the EFL Cup quarterfinals. Leicester City advanced to the quarter-finals after defeating Brighton on penalties, while Liverpool overcame Preston.

The match lived up to the expectations, with both teams attacking from the start. Jamie Vardy scored Leicester City's first goal in the ninth minute. In the thirteenth minute, the Englishman scored a second to increase Leicester City's advantage.

Liverpool reduced the deficit with an Oxlade-Chamberlain goal, but Leicester City scored a third with a superb shot from James Maddison to restore Leicester City's two-goal margin.

Substitute Diogo Jota halved the deficit with a left-footed shot around the hour mark to keep Liverpool in the game. Takumi Minamino scored the equalizer in the waning minutes of the game, sending the game to penalties. Liverpool triumphed on penalties, 5-4, thanks to Diogo Jota.

Here are Jurgen Klopp's tactical blunders as Liverpool narrowly qualified for the semi-finals.

#1. Underestimating Leicester City

Liverpool's approach to the Leicester encounter plainly demonstrates that the Merseyside team misjudged Leicester City.

Liverpool traveled with a roster that included a large number of youth players. This obviously reflects Liverpool's attitude to the game. The academy players struggled and underperformed.

#2. Resting His Best Players

In today's encounter, Jurgen Klopp rested a huge number of first-team players. He even went so far as to exclude them from the traveling team. Mohamed Salah, one of the top players in the world right now, was not included in the team for the game. Sadio Mane, Virgil Van Dijk, and Joel Matip were other significant absentees.
