Jurgen Klopp TEAMtalk

Jurgen Klopp refused to be too downbeat after watching his Liverpool side make it four games without a win after they were held by Premier League leaders Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.

A fairly lifeless game sparked into life late on when Alisson made two excellent stops to deny the visitors.

The 0-0 draw meant the Reds have now failed to score in their last three games, but Klopp wanted to focus on the positives.

He told Sky Sports: “If we won 1-0 I’d think it was completely fine. You can’t deny Manchester United chances for 90 minutes. You never could. They’re in a good moment.

“With all the things said before the game – they’re flying and we’re struggling – my boys did a good game tonight.

“First half the counter-press was great, passing was good. But we didn’t score. That’s the most important thing in football.

“The second half was a bit more open. They had two big chances – Alisson made two good saves.

Goals will come eventually

“There is no easy explanation [for their recent lack of goals]. You always miss chances. You have to keep going and try to ignore the talk around it. Everyone wants to see goals. You cannot force it.

“It’s football. These moments happen. You have moments where you can’t explain why you score from all angles. Against Crystal Palace everything ended up in the net. It’s a bit annoying in between these moments.

“I like the game. I saw a lot of really good individual perfomances and the team performance was good. Not the result we wanted, but the result we got.”
