Man City draw a missed chance for Liverpool – Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says his immediate reaction to Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City was one of disappointment.

The Reds took the lead at the Etihad through James Milner’s penalty, only for Sergio Aguero to level the scores with a smart close-range finish.

Klopp, though, believes his side had the chances to win it, and couldn’t hide his frustration after the game.

“To get a point at Manchester City for each team in the world is absolutely OK,” he said.

“There were a few situations where we couldn’t defend their quality. We could have won this game, because we forced the goalkeeper into a few outstanding saves.

“We had a phase between 50-70 where we had them and didn’t close the game. We let them recover on the pitch, so they came back.

“They deserved the goal, but we could have scored more. Two highly motivated sides, both wanted to win until the last seconds.

“Our set pieces were good. It is difficult to defend this.

“We had three or four open goals in the six yard box. They had their moments too. Maybe it’s OK, but I’m not happy in this moment.

“Give me a few hours and then I’m happy.”
