Leeds United defender Robin Koch admits it will be “hard” for the team to recover after Monday night.
The Whites lost 6-1 to Liverpool in front of the home crowd at Elland Road. It was the second game in a row where Leeds had conceded five or more goals in a game at home. Leeds have now conceded 60 goals, more than any Premier League club this season.
Koch believes it will be a tough task, but the team will focus on the next three games:
“It’s hard for us but we need to put this game aside now and we’ve got three massive games coming. It’s extremely hard for us now but we put it aside and go again for the next three games,” he told LUTV.
“If you leave them too much space like we did [you get punished]. In the second half we wanted to turn the game around and put everything into the game. We scored the goal as well but they had more space in the offensive half.”
Leeds sit in 16th place in the Premier League, just 2 points above relegation. Their next three fixtures are against Fulham, Leicester City and Bournemouth. The latter two teams also fighting for survival in England’s top flight.
