JURGEN KLOPP was fuming as Liverpool suffered a defensive horror show at Brentford.
And Kop legend Jamie Carragher let rip at his old club — slamming Klopp’s men as an “ageing team, coming to the end” after a shambolic first half which saw the Reds two down, with another two Bees goals ruled out by VAR.
An irate Klopp raged: “We are not happy with the performance.
“We get away with a goal from an offside position, then they score immediately and we are not there — that’s a massive point of criticism.
“In the end, it became the game they wanted, not the game we wanted.”
Liverpool defender Andy Robertson said: “It’s not good enough.
“We have spoken about consistency but we’re not getting it.
“It feels like one step forward, one step back at the moment.”
Liverpool struggled at set-pieces and Brentford, who were without star man Ivan Toney, grabbed the opener when Ibrahima Konate deflected a corner into his own net.
Then moments after a second disallowed effort from Yoane Wissa, the Bees striker headed in after the visitors gave the ball away.
Van Dijk was subbed off for Joel Matip at the break and the Dutch centre-back sat on the bench with strapping on his leg.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain halved the deficit before Bryan Mbeumo sealed an impressive win for Thomas Frank’s side after a tussle with Konate late on.
Klopp rapped: “The third goal should not be a goal, easy as that!
“But trying to talk to the officials about it is like trying to talk to my microwave.”
Defeat leaves Liverpool four points off fourth-placed Manchester United having played a game more — and Reds legend Carragher blasted his former side.
The Kop icon said: “This result has been coming.
“It looks like an ageing team, coming to the end.
“That was an absolutely shambolic first half. Liverpool look like a team that needs a revamp.”
Brentford moved up to seventh and boss Frank said: “I can’t praise the players enough.”
