Jurgen Klopp takes philosophical stance despite second straight draw for Liverpool

The Reds certainly had their chances but goalkeeper Karl Darlow denied Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah repeatedly, while the home side also had their own chances.

A stalemate was a second successive draw for the league leaders, following their 1-1 scoreline at home against West Brom, but the manager praised his team for their on- and off-the-ball approach.

“We found a lot of solutions in the game, crazy, unbelievable chances, but didn’t use them – that’s why its 0-0,” he said to Amazon Prime Video.

“You have different draws in life but this is one I’m really fine with the performance. That’s the way we have to play, protect and create and we did all that. It’s still disappointing but that’s how it is.

Liverpool are far from as clear at the top as they might have been as a result of those recent matches, but Klopp pointed to more pertinent matters on a wider scale to be concerned about rather than possibly being even more points ahead of their rivals than they are.

“The last thing I’m thinking about is our position in the table. It’s nice but doesn’t mean anything.

“You see we drew the last two and we’re still top – it shows how difficult the season is for everybody. We are in as good a mood as possible. If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
