Better Things Around The Corner For Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool

We controlled much better than in the past, and with the second balls, on which they are masters.

"It's tough times for the boys, eh?"

"But as a player there is not much more that you can achieve than playing these type of games, because when you play them or when the atmosphere is like that, you know it's a big thing".

"Somebody asked me: 'Is the level of the game because of the intensity?' Already in the question, there is criticism; it could have been better if you were fresher".

"But that's how it is".

Pep Guardiola is prepared to shoulder the blame for the penalty call which cost Manchester City at Liverpool, with it his decision to hand spot-kick duties to Riyad Mahrez over Gabriel Jesus.

"He goes exactly there and the 'keeper dives that way and look at the reaction".


City, the reigning Premier League champions, were given a gilt-edged chance to leave Anfield with a win for the first time since 2003 when Van Dijk brought down Leroy Sane inside the box five minutes from time.

'I watched it because I wanted to get the rebound but I was very happy that it didn't go in. "The start of the game was fantastic".

So far this season they have played 24 games in all competitions and scored nine. You need to finish. They will have their moments, but I thought we defended them brilliant - apart from the penalty and one or two situations, where we needed Alisson with a really good save.

"It was a great game to play obviously and it's unlucky that we didn't score and unlucky [for City] that we didn't concede as well".

But former Manchester United defender Neville thinks otherwise - insisting that Liverpool have the edge over both of the pair as shown by their ability to grind out wins even while underperforming this term. Against City, if you don't defend half spaces they are constantly between your midfield and your last line, you have to constantly jump from your last line, which you don't want to do that often.

"It was easy to adjust because we made not too many mistakes at Napoli, but a massive one formation-wise. The teams did well and we were a bit lucky with the penalty, of course, that is clear".

The manager also provided an update on the fitness of James Milner, who was forced off midway through the first half with a hamstring problem. Until roughly this time previous year the criticism of him was always that his finishing didn't match up to his excellence in other areas, and he seems to have reverted to that impression of him: 29 shots on the league this season have yielded only three goals.
