Jurgen Klopp: Kompany Should Have Been Sent Off

Jurgen Klopp: Kompany Should Have Been Sent Off

The Premier League's two-week holiday slate concludes with the biggest match of them all.

Jurgen Klopp's side saw their unbeaten start to the top-flight season ended at the Etihad Stadium thanks to goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane.

But parity lasted just eight minutes as Sane fired City's victor off the post, leaving Liverpool to come to terms with their first league defeat since May 6.

"It's still in Liverpool's hands, but our performance was beyond anything else I've ever witnessed", City captain Vincent Kompany said.

Even a draw, which would have left Liverpool seven points clear, would have been something of a footballing Everest for City and Tottenham to climb to finish on top.

"I didn't think it would be possible".

While the triumvirate of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino is capable of winning the English top-flight on their own, if Liverpool can add significant strength in depth to their attacking line-up, then that could seal Liverpool's first ever Premier League crown.

However, they came up against a City side desperate to peg back the Merseysiders in the race for the title.

That bill would fund Homeland Security through February 8 at current levels, which does not include money for a border wall. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times published on Sunday, Kelly said , "To be honest, it's not a wall".

"I am proud of them (the players), but not just today".

"Everyone knows Fernandinho is important for us", Sane explained after the win. Every team studies how we play, especially in the Premier League and we know how hard it is to play this way.

I'm still not not sure how it happened, but Stones then managed to react quickly and clear the ball off the line, nutmegging Salah in the process.

Not when Klopp reflected on the four-point lead over City having now twice played the team that has won the title three times since 2012.

So far, City have the best record in games against the top clubs - in six fixtures they have four wins although they did lose to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. What kind of reaction do we want to see? But now with this result, boy could we be in for something special.

"You just have to keep going and bounce back and that is something we are definitely going to do".

Liverpool are next in action on Monday night at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third round of the FA Cup.
