Jurgen Klopp reacts to Manchester City defeat

"The Premier League is a tough league, the games keep coming".

Jurgen Klopp claimed Vincent Kompany should have been sent off for his ugly foul on Mohamed Salah as Liverpool's title charge was hit by a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City on Friday (Jan 4) morning (Singapore time).

Pep Guardiola showered praise on his workhorse playmaker Bernardo Silva after a herculean effort for Manchester City against Liverpool tonight at the Etihad Stadium.

It means City have cut the gap between them and Liverpool to four points at the top of the league. They had periods where they dominated the game and everybody felt the intensity. I think it takes a bit of pressure off.

City was spared from going behind by just 11 millimeters (0.4 inches) of the ball failing to cross the line in the 18th minute.

John Stones then smacked his panicked clearance into City goalkeeper Ederson but the England global redeemed himself by clearing just before all of the ball had crossed the line. Alisson demonstrated why Liverpool spent a then world record £67 million for a goalkeeper in July to bolster their title chances with a brilliant save from Aguero as the Argentine tried to round him at the end of a blistering City counter-attack.

He was on eight when he feebly chipped an Ishant Sharma delivery to Agarwal at short midwicket, who took a hard diving catch. Kohli soon introduced Jadeja, however, who had tied Khawaja in knots in the first innings before having him caught for 21.

"If we would have won the title five times in the last 10 years, we would say; '100 percent [we'll win it]'".

"It was that or let him go through on goal and the decision was made very quickly in my head". We need to be ready and we will be. "Was it not? All right", Kompany told Sky Sports. "We lost two games in four days but you can't forget what they have done for 16 months". "He has to defend the ball, win the ball, pass the ball!"

Liverpool pushed for an equaliser after the break and it eventually came just after the hour-mark, with Roberto Firmino heading home from close-range after outstanding play from full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson in the build-up.

"We have never won it as a team".

The Reds could have been in front early on, but Sadio Mane's shot rebounded from the post in the first half. "It's not fair. We want justice" he said on his petition.

"I have already said to the boys this is OK. When we win or we lose, we will not look back".
