Jurgen Klopp tried his usual tricks during the warm-up before Man City vs Liverpool


Jurgen Klopp made no bones about his feelings towards Liverpool's 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on Thursday evening.

In the German's opinion, all the luck was with City and Vincent Kompany should have been shown a red card for his dangerous tackle on Mohamed Salah.

Whereas Liverpool were denied by the woodwork when Sadio Mane poked past Ederson, both of City's goals were scored by the finest of margins.

It meant the Reds suffered their first defeat in the Premier League this season and lost their seven-point lead on their opponents.

"There was big pressure on the game, it was very intense," Klopp said on Sky Sports. "We were very unlucky in our finishing moments, a bit unluckier than City.

"If you compare the goals, when Sane scores and the situation we had when Mane hit the post, we are talking about an inch or so. That was the main difference.

"We could have drawn, we could have won it and that's how it is. However, we lost it and it was clear that would happen at some point. It's not nice but not the biggest problem."

And on Kompany's tackle, he added: "I really like Kompany, but how on earth is that not a red card? He is the last man and he goes in. If he hits Mo any more, he is out for the season.

"If Mo goes through [on goal], come on, what happens then? It's not easy for the referee and he may not see it how I see it."

Klopp used all three of his substitutions at the Etihad to try and turn the game in Liverpool's favour, but unfortunately they didn't pay off.

He even tried some scare tactics before the game by intensely watching City warming up from 10 metres away, which some Liverpool fans will know he does every week.

Knowing Klopp was watching them train must have been quite intimidating for City players, but they were fantastic against Liverpool and got the job done.

Pep Guardiola's men are now four points behind the league leaders and with Tottenham close by in third, the Premier League title race is really starting to get interesting.
