Thursday night saw Liverpool’s title charge hit rocks for the first time this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s men travelled to fellow high flyers Man City as their unbeaten run came to an end.

The Reds, who were the only team in England’s top four divisions yet to taste defeat ahead of the game, lost 2-1.

Despite Roberto Firmino netting for the visitors, goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane ensured City walked away with maximum points.

The defeat came a day after Reds defender Dejan Lovren pinned his side down to complete an invincible season when Sky Sports asked him about it, saying: “There are always records to beat.

“Everything is possible when you believe and you work hard.

“Of course, you need the luck to go your way, but why not? It is a challenge for us and every player here.

“Will it be possible? Let’s see at the end of the season.”


Now, of course, that won’t be the case.

However, the Reds still remain in good stead to clinch their first league title since 1990, topping the table with four points separating them from City in second.

And Lovren revealed how his side reacted to their first defeat of the campaign.

The Croatian, who has been in and out of the Liverpool team this season, said per the Liverpool Echo: “The message (I the dressing room afterwards) was to stay calm.


“There are many games in front of us, and we knew it was a big season and we are still first. Nothing changed.

“We need to stay calm, keep our focus game by game and do not look back.

“When we win or we lose, we will not look back.


“People already questioned us even before the season, even now they said this game was already the title.

“It doesn’t work in football like that. It is game by game, let us see at the end of the season where we will finish.”
