Jurgen Klopp Explains Row With Sadio Mane At Full Time

"Gomez is in the team, but Klopp has to allow him to play in the middle".

"I was angry because we wanted to change the system but the ref didn't give us the opportunity", said Klopp.

"They haven't brought the players in the back four and maybe in goal to match what they have got in an attacking sense".

"I was shouting at [Mane] because he was in the centre. He is fantastic and did really well and that is why we left him on the pitch", he added. What I really thought was that we should have won the game.

He told reporters, "I think for the whole game we had a really good performance".

"Chelsea fought hard and deserved the point but it doesn't feel flawless at the moment".

However, the former Italian manager said he is focused on the positives of Chelsea's display, less than 72 hours after they completed a 5,000-mile round trip to Baku to face Qarabag in the Champions League. In the first half, we were very solid and always unsafe when we had the ball. "Then we would have had three points more and we would have been even with Chelsea and that would have been nice".

"I don't think it was a great result for them, it's a decent point for Liverpool".

However, the north London side will regard the 1-1 stalemate with the strugglers at Wembley as two points dropped. The striker outmuscled Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez and rolled a shot past Hugo Lloris.

The Senegal worldwide was surprisingly benched for the match at Anfield and was only brought on with one minute remaining.

Second-placed Manchester United did not slip up, beating Brighton 1-0 at Old Trafford.

Worryingly for the Englishman, Lallana's return looks set to further reduce his involvement with the side, leaving Chamberlain with fewer chances to impress Klopp, having previously suggested he was struggling to adapt to the German's demanding style.
