The Reds drew 1-1 against Chelsea in their final home game of the season on Wednesday night.
Manager Jurgen Klopp played the same team that would probably start in the Europa League final against Sevilla next Wednesday.
The only difference is that they didn’t give full commitment against Chelsea, mainly making sure they avoided injury and kept match fit for the big game.
With nothing to win in the league for either side, the pressure was off as both teams played for pride.
Klopp was still philosophical about what he could learn during the game.
“But there was not enough faith in our own quality so we lost patience and when you lose patience in football it’s always difficult.
“Without patience, we lost formation. We had a lot of moments around the box when we shot when we should have passed,” Klopp said after the game.
The German manager is known for pinpointing weaknesses that his team can learn from going forward.
“We showed in the first 15 minutes what we are capable of. We were great, wonderful football without scoring,” said Klopp.
Being the last game of the season at Anfield, the players also knew they had to play for the fans, but frustration at the stands came at a cost.
“I love this stadium and atmosphere but everybody last patience tonight, the crowd too. It’s quite difficult to say ‘be patient’ when everybody is shouting ‘run’.
“We all don’t trust our quality. That’s what we have to learn. We can learn that in the future and we will.
“If you don’t think you need to score in each situation because you have players who can create chances and score goals, you can celebrate other situations,” added Klopp.
