Jurgen Klopp has said Liverpool will not make any more signings in the January transfer window following their FA Cup exit.
The holders crashed out of the cup in the fourth round with a 2-1 loss at Brighton, meaning all three games against the Seagulls this season ended in awe.
The Reds drew 3-3 at home to the Seagulls in Roberto De Zerbi’s first game in charge, before being beaten 3-0 in the second leg on January 14.
Now they have been beaten by Brighton again, with many of the team’s problems laid bare.
Youngster Stefan Bajcetic was again favored over captain Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, the latter lucky enough to avoid a red card in a late appearance.
Liverpool have few options in the center of the park, while things are worse up front with Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota out with long-term injuries.
Despite these problems, Klopp said the club won’t be bringing in any more reinforcements this month.
“No, no, nothing will happen in this transfer window,” he told beIN Sports after the game. “That’s it, everything is fine.”
