The focus on unforced errors during the game does not detract from the one that Klopp made with his team selection.

radicate the mistakes, pass the ball better and Liverpool will be unrecognisable against Real Madrid next Wednesday with or without the backing of a frenzied Anfield crowd.

That, at least, was Jürgen Klopp’s hope during a post-match press conference at Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano that veered towards straw-clutching even before he mentioned Barcelona.

A total of nine attempted tackles by Liverpool’s team, substitutes included, is equally revealing.

True, they were aided and abetted by a woeful first-half display from the visitors but in the execution of their gameplan, defending without three first-choice regulars, quality on the ball and escaping Liverpool’s press, Zinedine Zidane’s team were comfortably superior.

But there it is in Uefa’s official match report: Liverpool 87% (539 of 622 attempted passes completed) and Madrid 86% (447 of 522 attempted passes completed).

“The problem was that we gave the ball away too easily,” was his take on the ineffectiveness of Liverpool’s gameplan.
