Reds now on City's level, says Klopp despite loss

  • Danny Welbeck scored against former club Manchester United the last time Arsenal faced the Red Devils in the FA Cup

The Reds slumped to a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Citizens at The Etihad on Thursday night as they suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season at the hands of last term's champions.

A source said: "The players take the plaudits and rightly so, but they are all very aware that an terrible lot of people are involved in making sure they are able to play their best game possible". You'll go a long way to find a more weird nine-point haul than the one achieved by Leicester, who defeated Chelsea and Everton away from home as well as Manchester City at the King Power Stadium, but surprisingly lost at home to Cardiff. When we win or we lose, we will not look back. But everybody saw it how brilliant he played in the first part [of the season]. Tottenham was a fantastic game from him, without thinking too much.

If Klopp does make lots of changes that still means his defence could feature Joe Gomez and Alberto Moreno, his midfield at least two of Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Naby Keita or Fabinho, and an attack with Daniel Sturridge and Zherdan Shaqiri.

"I heard it was tight". Everything is fine. I am completely happy with Naby. "Those sort of things can change a game", Stones smiled.

Aguero's 40th minute opener extended his streak of having scored in all seven of his home league games against Liverpool.

Okay then. Merson's rant caused quite a stir as Liverpool fans argued that they have the quality and depth in their squad to challenge on all fronts.

After all, it was 242 days since Liverpool last lost a Premier League game in a 1-0 defeat at Chelsea in May. The victory meant that City finished game week 21 with 50 points and now trail the Reds by just 4 points.

"The quicker Liverpool go out of the Champions League, the more of an unbelievable chance they have to win the league", he said.

The Liverpool manager is considering whether to name highly-rated 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever in his squad, with sources also telling ESPN FC that academy defender Conor Masterson trained at Melwood on Friday.

It is too early to know whether this rather patchy display will prove as costly, yet Liverpool head back nursing a new year's hangover that make take a while to clear.
