Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has called on his side to learn from the mistakes they made in Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

Palace defender Scott Dann headed home an 82nd-minute winner after Philippe Coutinho had levelled matters for the Reds following Yannick Bolasie's opener.

It was Liverpool's first defeat in 13 matches, and their first under Klopp. It was a disappointing result especially considering that the Reds enjoyed nearly 65 percent of the possession, but they were only able to find the target with four of 22 shots.

"Today is a bad feeling - it was not necessary to lose this game," Klopp said after the match.

"We were the better team but for the first 15 minutes we were not on the pitch. We got the goal, we were awake, we started creating chances.

"But after the break, we gave them chances to cause us problems. Then we woke up again but couldn't make a goal. It feels so bad because it was not necessary. This was not enough for us - we can do more. We have to learn from this."

The German admitted that he was disappointed to see many of the Anfield faithful stream out of the stadium following Palace's late goal.

"The goal came after 82 minutes. Twelve minutes to go (including injury time), and I saw many people leaving the stadium," he said. "I turn around and saw them go. I felt pretty alone at this moment.

"We decide when it's over. Between 82 and 94 minutes, you can make eight goals if you want. But you have to work for it. The big decisions are made in moments when you are tired and under stress, and we have to learn that. 

"It feels so bad because it was absolutely not necessary. We have to feel this, keep this, and know why we don't want to feel this again. Look, I say what I think, please don't make it bigger than it is."
