Klopp Blames The Wind Yet Again As Liverpool Drop Points

Klopp Blames The Wind Yet Again As Liverpool Drop Points

Manchester City now have the advantage in the Premier League title race following Liverpool's 0-0 draw against Everton. And that is really worrying for the Reds at such a crucial time of the season. It's the beginning of March, who cares?

"It didn't help any football play, especially when the ball was in the air which it was a lot". It's a Sunday and you've just witnessed your team deliver a potentially fatal blow to your bitter rival's title chances.

Exactly two months ago, Manchester City were 10 points behind Liverpool in the third place, and right now, they are a point ahead of them. We play next week against Burnley and if we play only offensive, they kill us on the counter-attack, 100 percent.

"We become the chasers now and all the pressure is on Manchester City", Liverpool full-back Andy Robertson said.

'We take all the risks, but you can not take more than 100 percent risk.

The result of a typically frantic derby on its own is no cause for alarm for Klopp but the eight-point swing to City since January 30 is a trend they simply have to end.

"They are doing incredibly well and we are the same". It's even more freaky when you think that Liverpool and Everton play in the same city.

Guardiola is clearly concerned about the amount of games, and especially possibility of his players picking up injuries during the upcoming global fixtures in the middle of March.

She has complained about her treatment by the UK Government, saying the stripping of her nationality is 'unjust on me and my son'. However, British officials have ruled out any effort inside Syria to extract her or her son.


Asked if there will be more twists and turns, Klopp replied: "Hopefully at least one".

Liverpool looked unnerved in the early stages, with a partisan Goodison Park crowd playing on the minds of the Reds players. They huffed and puffed to recent 1-0 wins against West Ham and Bournemouth recently, while midfielder Kevin De Bruyne limped out of Saturday's win against Eddie Howe's team with a hamstring injury.

Liverpool are still very much in this race but there was no disguising the delight around Goodison Park and the frustration of their counterparts from across Stanley Park as the final whistle sounded.

He continued: "Scoring goals is probably the hardest part of football, so as long as we're creating the chances we know it'll come in the end.

That's all we can do and if they miss one shot, take it". It was just a fight and we were ready for that fight.

"We had five or six big chances but Jordan Pickford or a defender was in between".

"I don't think I have to give my players advice because they know it already".
