Klopp: ‘Man City result did not affect my players’

Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool failed to expand their lead in the Premier League with more than one point on Manchester City after the Reds were held to a 1-1 draw against Leicester City on Wednesday. Head coach Jurgen Klopp told a news conference after the game he did not believe his team were guilty of complacency after seeing Man City lose to Newcastle on Tuesday.

“Am I disappointed after we didn’t win a game? Of course I am,” Klopp, whose side still opened up a five-point cushion, told a news conference. “But I don’t bring it together with the Man City game. It’s easy to ask all these questions, but we have to make sure that we are not influenced too much by these things. The boys are normal human beings, I am a normal human being. We wanted to win a game and we didn’t, so we don’t feel brilliant.”

“But then we have to talk about what does it mean? Not too much to be honest. We have a point more than before. That’s not exactly what we wanted to have, but still everything is fine in the moment. We don’t think we run through the league and beat everybody; we were ready for hard work, and in a difficult game on a difficult pitch, we got a point. Not perfect, but still good enough.”
