Jürgen Klopp fury as Vincent Kompany escapes red card for lunge

Share

Liverpool would have gone 10 points clear with a win but Kompany was more impressed with the manner of victory rather than the result itself.

As it was, Leroy Sane's 72nd-minute victor blew the title race open once again, as the German clinched victory after Roberto Firmino had cancelled out Sergio Aguero's emphatic opener.

Sadio Mane had the first real opportunity of the match that hit the post, came back, and was somehow deflected off the face off Ederson, and was millimeters away from crossing the goal line.

But Liverpool FC found themselves behind again in the 72nd minute thanks to Leroy Sane's fine finish as the Citizens claimed the three points.

"In a lot of moments it was really wild, a lot of rusty moments when somebody kicked the ball out, a blue one, a red one, and you think 'what's that?'".

Liverpool have not been used to being in this position; being the ones ahead, at the top of the table and the burden that comes with that - the pressure of being leaders and not chasers.

"It is the toughest situation I have to handle", Guardiola said at the time. "If somebody would have told me after both games against Manchester City we are four points up, I would've paid money for it like you wouldn't believe". I got the ball, a little bit of the man, but it wasn't naughty.

"Everyone knows Fernandinho is important for us", Sane explained after the win.

"In the end, you can say post [and] in or post [and] out can make a massive difference - today we witnessed that", Klopp said.

"We went toe to toe with a very aggressive team and we matched them".

Jurgen Klopp's side, unbeaten in 20 league matches, traveled to the Etihad Stadium on the hunt for its first league title in 29-years but found it hard to settle into the game. Of course, it will be a challenge but this is what we want.

"I am confident we can bounce back. They won it, we lost it and it is sometimes like this".

"For tonight, the boys tried everything, and we got nothing for it".
