Jurgen Klopp furious with referee decision after "unlucky" defeat to Man City

  • Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was not happy with Vincent Kompany's first half challenge that left Mohamed Salah in agony

Bernardo was arguably the star of the show, running 13.7km - a Premier League high so far this season - and he says the result sends a message to Liverpool that the title race remains very much on. They are the ones I respect the most.

Manchester City suffered three defeats in four Premier League games in December before meeting Liverpool, and their poor performances were rightly a cause of concern.

For that to happen, though, City must lead the charge and ensure that they breathe so heavily down Liverpool's neck that they force the mistakes that lead to dropped points. But most of the time, in the Premier League, City don't have to defend because they outplay most opponents.

However, manager Jurgen Klopp said after the match he would have paid good money to be four points clear having played City twice already in the season and Robertson said nothing had altered the players' perspective. Liverpool are a side who will beat most teams on an average day.

"Klopp has turned Liverpool into an absolute fighting machine - both attacking and defending", he explained. Guardiola has won three La Liga, three Bundesliga titles to add to his Premier League triumph.


Juan Mata - from the penalty spot - and Romelu Lukaku scored the first-half goals for United, allowing Solskjaer to join the great Matt Busby (in 1946) as the only United managers to win their first five games.

"That's how you have to play against City, in the moment when you get the ball you have to make the best of it". This is something we are really focused on because we truly believe in his qualities - he has speed, unpredictability, quality'. Like all the boys who don't play constantly week in week out, they kept the level really high in training.

For Guardiola, though, winning this game and ending Liverpool's unbeaten run was a crucial step toward reining the leaders in. "We have to fight a lot, but this gives us a lot of confidence".

Either way, Liverpool fans should not expect any movement from the midfielder until Klopp has had the chance to see him in action, and that chance may come on Monday evening.

Liverpool FC have collected 54 points from their opening 21 games. Every team studies how we play, especially in the Premier League and we know how hard it is to play this way.
