Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp dumbfounded Vincent Kompany didn't see red

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp dumbfounded Vincent Kompany didn't see red

As it was, Leroy Sane's 72nd-minute victor blew the title race open once again, as the German clinched victory after Roberto Firmino had cancelled out Sergio Aguero's emphatic opener. Manchester City has renewed hope it won't be surrendering the trophy at all. "It had wild moments". "All season we have taken it game by game and we will do that again".

Reds boss Klopp was furious that City captain Kompany escaped with only a yellow card from referee Anthony Taylor following his two-footed lunge on Salah in the first half at the Etihad Stadium. "We're just four points behind them, and they know it, too".

"It's not fair. We want justice" he said on his petition.

The Portugal global also claimed an assist as City closed within four points of Liverpool, who were condemned to their first defeat of the Premier League campaign. The ball looped back toward goal and Stones had to scramble to clear.

"I think everybody can see why we have the points we have".

In the first half, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah combined magnificently to put teammate Sadio Mane through on goal, but his shot struck the post.

The hosts did go through on goal themselves - and scored in the 40th minute.

"You just have to keep going and bounce back and that is something we are definitely going to do". Conversely, Man City can get right back into the title race and leapfrog Tottenham into second place after a pair of recent shocking defeats opened the door for Liverpool and Spurs to pull ahead. They won and we are very disappointed but we will focus on recovering and making sure we are ready for the next game.

City defender Stones reacted with a panicked clearance against Ederson and the ball cannoned off the goalkeeper towards his own net.

"We could have drawn, we could have won it and that's how it is".

"If someone had told me after both games against Man City that we were four points clear, I would have paid money for it, you can not believe", Klopp told reporters.

"If we lose the next one this doesn't mean anything".

"In the end, you can say post [and] in or post [and] out can make a massive difference - today we witnessed that", Klopp said.
