Liverpool didn't try to gain snow advantage vs. Leicester - Klopp

Jurgen Klopp's side have a five-point advantage over City after 24 games, though that would have been seven had Liverpool beaten Leicester at Anfield on Wednesday.

"I can not help that. But it is nothing to criticise because I don't understand, so how can I criticise it?"

Klopp also complained that Liverpool were denied a penalty in the second half after Naby Keita was fouled in the penalty area by Ricardo Pereira, only for referee Martin Atkinson to wave away the protests. As a result, he has missed Liverpool's last 11 fixtures, and his spell on the sidelines appears set to continue. "We had most of the ball and then it's hard to break them down then". The pitch was hard.

"When we had the warming up it started snowing and the pitch was completely okay and then we went in", Klopp said in a recent press conference. The first half we had 80% of the ball so only one team suffered and it was us.

"It was clear that our groundstaff tried to clear it but they didn't have enough manpower". That is a positive because they are in the title race, but it can wear you down and your legs start to go.

He said: "There was no plan, nobody told them, I can swear, to clear only our side or our box". If their box is clear then it's better to defend.

The evening had started in flawless fashion for Liverpool as Mane scored their fastest league goal in almost three years, with just two minutes on the clock, only for Maguire to level in first-half injury-time.

"The situation is simple, we improve the way we play, and with the details we didn't do well, we have options to change that".

"Of course we analyse our game to see what we have to improve on", said Guardiola.

On Friday, Jurgen Klopp had ruled Gomez out for at least the next couple of weeks - including the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern Munich, a match which Virgil van Dijk is suspended for.

"I'm not concerned about tweeting or Instagram because I can't control it".

"If any Liverpool supporter thinks they are just going to win the next 14 games, it's just not going to be like that", the ex-Liverpool captain told Sky Sports News.

And to give me a price of bigger than 5/1, I'll add in Shkodran Mustafi to get his seventh yellow of the campaign, with Arsenal likely to face wave after wave of attack and the pace of Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling in behind.
