LFC – Back On Our Perch rounds up the best post-match quotes after Liverpool wasted a golden opportunity to return to the top of the Premier League table, drawing 2 - 2 with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Jurgen Klopp and his players were left rueing a host of missed chances, as Manchester United held the Reds to a 2 - 2 draw at Old Trafford yesterday, meaning Liverpool dropped two points in the title race and missed the chance to return to the top of the table.  LFC - Back On Our Perch rounds up the best post-match reaction from Klopp and his players.

Liverpool Manager, Jurgen Klopp, during his post-match press conference, on his emotions after the game, 

"It's obviously mixed. I am happy with a lot of parts of the game. Being 1-0 up at Old Trafford and having a 15-0 shooting stat is incredible. It says to me immediately again there is probably something around the finishing, it was either exceptional goalkeeping – which was the case for one situation for Dom Szoboszlai, [which] was an incredible save – but besides that, we should and could have been calmer and clearer in moments. It’s fine, you are 1-0 up now and so still fine. Come outside [for the second half] and still controlling the game and then we gave the ball away. These mistakes happened before and will happen after today as well, so that is not a problem. First, you have to use it like Bruno did, it was a pretty exceptional finish. In this mood lift in the stadium, atmosphere lifted in the stadium, they pretty much scored the second and then we controlled the game again."

"We got the penalty and scored an equaliser – and could have scored more before or after. We played really good in so many moments and we had a five- or 10-minute period where they scored. For the second goal, we don’t push up properly and that’s why they find him between the lines, he can turn and then, in the end, it ends up with an incredible finish as well. After that, we were again in charge. Now you can say if we had that much of a dominance for long parts we should win the game – yes, that’s true – but you all are long enough in football that it doesn’t mean you will win. It just means you should and that is obviously different very often to the final scoreline. Two-two, I am not over the moon about it, I don’t think it’s the best result I’ve ever seen, but I am fine. Now we recover and play Atalanta in the Europa League."

Liverpool Captain, Virgil Van Dijk, speaking with BBC Match of the Day,

"It feels Like a loss, it is our fault again."

"We had so many chances and we should finish the game off."

"Unfortunately the individual mistake that happened with the equaliser and we had so much time to put it right, but we were in a rush."

"Still after being 2-1 down we created so much."

“We should have been 2-0 up at least, but in football unfortunately if these things don't happen you give them the feeling they could come back and it happened."

Liverpool midfielder, Wataru Endo, Speaking to LiverpoolFC.com

"We're disappointed about the result because we had a lot of chances in the first half."

"I think we could have scored more and we could play better. We're disappointed about the result."

"We knew that we needed to start strong from the beginning of the game – I think we did from the beginning. We had a lot of chances, so if we score a few [more] goals in the first half, I think the result would be different."

"But it's happened, so we need to stay positive and keep going."

Liverpool midfielder, Harvey Elliott, who won his side a second-half penalty,

"It should have been all three, but I think at the same time we need to look at the game, and we were trailing."

"I think the boys showed unbelievable fight and courage to come back, to stay level-headed, stay in the game and get the equaliser."

"A point is better than nothing. We wanted the three points – there's no doubt about that – but a point is better than losing."

Asked whether he was pleased with his own performance,

"It was OK. I'm in the team to do that exactly and for me, if we don't win it means nothing. I just need to keep going, keep trying to take these opportunities and work for the team, do my bit for the team and for the badge. I just want to keep going and keep fighting until the end of the season. As I said, if it's not three points then for me personally it means nothing."
