Liverpool vs Man City post-match quotes

Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola's sides served up another Premier League classic at Anfield yesterday, as the title-chasing teams played out an enthralling one-all draw.  LFC - Back On Our Perch brings you a selection of the best post-match quotes.

  • Liverpool and City play out a thrilling one-all draw at Anfield
  • City took the lead in the first half, but a Mac Allister penalty in the second half drew Liverpool level
  • Liverpool denied a last-minute penalty for a high boot on Mac Allister
  • The title race is going to the wire, with ten games left in the PL season

Jurgen Klopp, speaking to the BBC, about the match,

"Sensational. First 10 minutes we were in a bit of a rush and Manchester City were directly there.  The second half was the best we ever played against Manchester City, definitely."

"They hit the post of course but we should have scored two or three goals. Exceptional football game. Wow!  For me, we proved today the first time 100% we are exactly where we should be. We will fight for it and see what we can get."

"I don't think I've seen them struggling like they were today. We were outstanding.  The mother of all results is the performance. The good things we have to keep doing."

Jurgen Klopp, speaking to the BBC, about Doku's challenge on Mac Allister, 

"It was 100% penalty. They will find an explanation. It was 100% foul in all areas of the pitch and probably a yellow card."

"All the people with iPads around me were 'wow, clear'. Maybe they can hide behind the phrase it is not clear and obvious."

"It is of course a penalty but we didn't get it and that is fine. The most important thing for me is that we can play football like that. I saw so many sensational performances today."

Jurgen Klopp, on Wataru Endo's perfomance, 

"What can you expect when you sign 31-year-old captain of Japan and he will be a standout player in the Premier League?  You never know that people can develop to world class but that's what happened."

Virgil Van Dijk, speaking to Sky Sports, on the title race, 

"Second half was obviously much better than 15-20 minutes in the first half.  We should have closed the middle a bit better but we reacted well. We had very good chances, unfortunately, we couldn't get the winner but overall bittersweet."

"Based on the second half you feel we should have won it, but they hit the post as well. It was so close."

"Manchester City has been very successful with the titles they have won and every game we have played against each other have been very intense. Every game is so difficult, they have quality all over the pitch and that is why they won the Treble last year. I respect that but the aim for us today was to win the game."

"To come away with a point is not a bad situation and we have to focus on what's next. We just have to enjoy the ride."

Wataru Endo, speaking to the Official Liverpool FC website,

"The atmosphere was amazing.  Of course, I wanted to win for our fans, but the result was not too bad, I think."

"[In the] second half, we had more chances than Man City, in my opinion. So yeah, we are disappointed about the result but we need to move forward."

"We created more chances. Of course, we could only score one, but the way we played, with how we created the chances, I think it was amazing. If we keep playing like we did, the results will come."

Pep Guardiola, speaking to BBC MOTD, on Jurgen Klopp,

"What can I say? He made us a better team, he made me a better manager. I wish he will be back soon because football needs personalities like him."
