Leaders Liverpool lost their last Premier League match 2-1 to title rivals Manchester City and Klopp does not know if facing Albion in their next league game is a good or bad thing.

Klopp will likely make several changes when his side play Wolves at Molineux tonight.

The Reds manager will be hoping for a reaction from his side tonight after the defeat to City but feels his side have played outstanding football in recent weeks.

Talking to Sky Sports News about the defeat to City, Klopp said: "My assessment of the game was positive. Was it perfect? No, so we have to talk about that. Could we have defended the second goal? Yes, with the defensive line higher up.

"Can I always expect perfection? I would love to but sometimes it doesn't work out.

"It's just one football game. The boys in the last month have played outstanding football."

Klopp went on to speak about Liverpool's matches away to Wolves and Brighton and said: "The draw came out and it was Wolves away, it was like 'wow, thank you very much'.

"When we played there (in the league) it was really difficult and then we have to go there again. It's a really tough draw.

"And then Brighton come up. It's always a tough place to go, they have played a fantastic season so do we want to play Brighton directly after Manchester City? I don't know."
