Klopp gives verdict on EPL clash


Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has given his verdict on his side’s Premier League 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Saturday.

Klopp insisted that Liverpool caused Man City problems during the encounter.

The German watched as goals from Erling Haaland and Trent Alexander-Arnold ensured that Man City and Liverpool drew at Etihad.

“It is a really good moment,” Klopp said in his post-match interview after the game.

“It is a tough place to come – it is no coincidence that they win that many home games.

“We are still in a process. If we’d played really well today, we could have won – we did not. We played OK.

“We caused them problems as well, but our good moments didn’t feel that good to us [in the first half].

“We had to stretch ourselves again [in the second half]. We adapted our positioning slightly. “Unfortunately we lost Diogo [Jota], with Ali we will have to see.

“I told the boys at half-time, imagine what it would be like if we were playing well.

“We had to settle a little bit. Putting Trent in a different position defensively, plus Dom [Szoboszlai] and Mo [Salah] closing that gap in the second half gave us much more stability. From there we could play football ourselves.”
