Liverpool has booked its place in the last-16 of the Europa League following a comfortable 4-0 win over LASK. Despite securing top spot in Group E though, Jürgen Klopp wasn't entirely happy with his side.

Klopp explains what he 'didn't like' against LASK

Jürgen Klopp admitted he 'didn't like' some of Liverpool's performance against LASK as the Reds secured their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League. The 4-0 win, coupled with Toulouse's goalless draw against Union SG, means Liverpool goes straight through to the last-16, and avoids a play-off tie against one of the Champions League dropouts.

Despite the favorable scoreline, Klopp felt his side should have made things more comfortable for itself. The Reds passed up a number of chances, particularly in the first half which somehow ended with the host just 2-0 up.

"The most important thing is that we're at the head of the group and that won't change so that's good," Klopp told TNT Sports after the game.

"There was a lot of good stuff and some stuff I didn't like too much, but that's how it is. We say it all the time, we still have to grow and develop.

"There was some good football but this game should have been put to bed before half-time. If you are on the front foot and in charge then kill it. We didn't do that. At 2-0 and 3-0 great, we opened the game up a little bit and gave them chances. It is fantastic to win 4-0."

De Zerbi makes 'sorry' Mac Allister admission

Roberto De Zerbi has admitted he’s still ‘sorry’ after losing Alexis Mac Allister to Liverpool during the summer transfer window. The midfielder was one of the big names to move on from Brighton as he secured a move to Anfield.

Moisés Caicedo also left the Seagulls after their impressive showing last season, which saw them secure European football for the first time in their history. Things haven’t quite gone as smoothly following their departures though, with Brighton picking up just its first win in seven Premier League games against Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

While his side currently sits just a point off a European spot in the league, De Zerbi has admitted he is still working on getting his side back to the heights it hit last season. Mac Allister in particular has proven a big loss for the Italian.

“I’m sorry to lose great players; Caicedo, Mac Allister, but I know very well that I’m working and this is the philosophy of the club,” De Zerbi told TNT Sports.

“We are playing with four attackers. Last season Mac Allister often played as a no. 10, and so we had more control of the game. Now, we are playing with four attackers, Pedro, Fati, Ferguson and Welbeck. They are not no. 10s. When they get the ball, they want to score.”
