Barnes confident Liverpool can handle title pressure

Mohamed Salah was unable to find a breakthrough

Klopp was unaware of the social media post but, when told about it, expressed his surprise.

While no stranger to revelling in Liverpool victories, Klopp drew a distinction with celebrating another's disappointment.

The Liverpool manager said of Walker's tweet: "I can not help that". I am not sure what that says about us, it says something more about the other person.

City defender Kyle Walker aimed a tweet at Liverpool after the game and Klopp responded claiming that he has "never celebrated another team dropping points". For me that's not allowed.

"It's sport, you have to do your own thing and try to show your best performance". There were different moments we thought we could do this or that. "But it is nothing to criticise because I don't understand, so how can I criticise it?"

Lovren has been injury plagued throughout the last three seasons and only returned to the squad earlier in the week against Leicester City when he was an unused sub.

A pre-match snow flurry made the playing surface sticky and passing hard and at half-time groundstaff only cleared the penalty area Liverpool were attacking. As a result, he has missed Liverpool's last 11 fixtures, and his spell on the sidelines appears set to continue.

"The situation was like everybody saw".




The former Manchester United defender thinks that if Pep Guardiola's side are within touching distance of Liverpool come the final five matches, then the champions will retain their title.

"The pitch was hard and we needed to speed it up in the final third". That is a positive because they are in the title race, but it can wear you down and your legs start to go. If their box is clear then it's better to defend.

"Then we came back out and it was full of wet snow which made the pitch hard".

"The situation is simple, we improve the way we play, and with the details we didn't do well, we have options to change that".

And their defensive crisis has just got worse, as Jurgen Klopp fears long term casualty Joe Gomez could require surgery after he suffered a fracture to his leg during the Reds' away trip to Burnley on December 5th.

"I think we have an intriguing title race, I really do", the Sky Sports pundit said.

"We had even commercial things going on around the pitch - next time, first of all, there will be no commercial if it is snowing, and we will have enough shovels to clear the pitch".
