Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp: Nations League a 'senseless' competition

Benjamin Mendy Joe Gomez

Even when we won 3-0 at home and 4-3 at home, it was not like that.

The worldwide break now arrives for Liverpool following a run of seven fixtures in 23 days that included encounters with City, Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Napoli.

The 12 days leading up to the global break had been highlighted as a key period for Liverpool's season, and it won none of the four matches it played in that run, a frustrating end to Jurgen Klopp's third year as manager at Anfield. The Reds looked a little jaded midweek in the Champions League encounter away to Napoli, a game which they eventually lost 1-0 after a stoppage-time strike from Lorenzo Insigne. What few chances there were fell largely City's way.

"Both teams did well". Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment, otherwise you have big problems. I don't know. I [asked] him: "'Big one?' and he said: "'I don't think so, but big enough that I go off'". "We were a bit lucky with the penalty of course, that was clear". "He was on the pitch when the first penalty was not given", the City manager said.

"You can not defend them over 95 minutes at 100 percent". One situation and they are alone in front of your goalie, or alone in the box and they shoot and score an easy goal.

It was not clear whether Mr Meng had travelled to China on official business or for personal reasons. French police are investigating what is officially termed in France a "worrying disappearance".

"It is for both teams really intense what we are doing and both showed respect for the other team. I am happy with the results we got". We were back on track even after we had to change Milly [James Milner] which you never want to do, especially in the first half.

With Sergio Aguero substituted, the Brazil worldwide striker was ready to take the 86th-minute spot kick, but the City boss instructed Benjamin Mendy to tell Riyad Mahrez to take it instead.

The total of 109km distance covered was their joint-second-lowest of the season so far, but they made 129 high-intensity sprints - more than in any other game this season with the exception of last weekend's 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

"You can not defend them 100 per cent over 95 minutes, so they will always have their moments but I thought how we defended was brilliant apart from the penalty and one or two situations where we needed Alisson with a really good save".

"We controlled it with Riyad, the guy who could give the extra pass; Bernardo in the middle, to give you an extra pass".
