Jurgen Klopp doubt his side after City loss

0 26

Jurgen Klopp slams his players says they still won’t defeat City with an extra man.

Liverpool manager expressed is feeling following the loss against Manchester City in the Premier League at the Etihad stadium.

The Reds scored first in the match through Mohammed Salah in the first half before Alvarez leveled before half time.

Kevin De Bruyne, Gundogan and Jack Grealish scored to help City claim all three points.

Speaking after the game Klopp stated that his side didn’t do well enough to earn a point in the game.

“I didn’t see it good enough,” Klopp said. “Could he have got a second yellow? Yeah. I am not sure we would have won against 10 men.”

Liverpool took the lead through Mohamed Salahbefore Julian Alvarez equalised for City. But Klopp said the game was lost because of a dire second-half display during which City scored three times and said only four players — Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Alisson and Gakpo — had put in adequate performances.

“Four performances were OK,” the Liverpool manager added. “The two midfielders, Hendo and Fab, worked a lot, Cody and Ali and that is very difficult. If you want to get something here, 14 or 15 players have to be on top of their game and that was not the case.”

Meanwhile, Guardiola was forced to defend his reaction to Alvarez’s equaliser after he appeared to celebrate directly in front of Liverpool substitutes Konstantinos Tsimikas and Arthur Melo.

“I was happy and I said how nice our goal was,” Guardiola said, when asked afterwards about the interaction on the touchline.

“I’m so sorry [if it was disrespectful]. Ask him [Tsimikas] if I lack respect, I celebrate the goal the way I do with my son. I’m so sorry. Do you think it’s a lack of respect? I’m so sorry.”
