Klopp’s side conceded an 87th minute equaliser in a damaging 2-2 draw with Bournemouth at Anfield on Wednesday.

That late slip means the gap to fifth-placed Arsenal was cut to six points, with the Gunners having two matches in hand on the third-placed Reds.

Klopp tried to ensure Liverpool held on to their lead against Bournemouth by switching to a three-man defence with 25 minutes to go when he replaced the ill Philippe Coutinho with centre-back Joel Matip.

But that could not prevent a late long throw leading to Josh King snatching a point for the visitors.

An inability to get results over the line has been a problem all season and the Reds boss admits they would do well to follow the example of the Premier League leaders, who have dropped just eight points from winning positions this season.
