Fernandinho: Bernardo Silva one of Man City's best

Jurgen Klopp’s influence on Liverpool’s psychology is more encouraging than their points or position

Klopp's frustration at Kompany's escape was exacerbated as Liverpool slumped to their first league defeat this season, ending a 20-match unbeaten run. "It had wild moments".

A season that started with Leroy Sane's future at City in doubt is no longer a tale of woe for the German winger, who underlined his vast potential with the blistering victor that kept the champions' title hopes alive.

The 24-year-old Portugal global has emerged as a key player for City this season and was outstanding alongside Fernandinho in central midfield.

Manchester City's Vincent Kompany appeared to have a message for Mohamed Salah after his crunching tackle at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday.

"We went toe to toe with a very aggressive team and we matched them".

City was spared from going behind by just 11 millimeters (0.4 inches) of the ball failing to cross the line in the 18th minute.

Asked whether his side's reaction to the loss would prove telling, Klopp replied: "How can I say that?"

"I didn't try to injure him".

"Sometimes it's just a little bit: the cross was not good enough or the last pass, that happens", Klopp explained.

We strike back. We lost at Manchester City but we have to show constantly that we are on top of our game.

"There was big pressure on the game, it was a very intense game", Klopp told Sky Sports.

"For us, it is really important we take it game by game because there is no other chance".

Liverpool would have gone 10 points clear with a win but Kompany was more impressed with the manner of victory rather than the result itself.

The equalizer was created by the fullbacks in the 64th.

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

The Reds could have been in front early on, but Sadio Mane's shot rebounded from the post in the first half.

He added: "We knew that if we lost it would nearly be over because 10 points is a lot". "We could've drawn, we could've won it". "We knew that if we won we would be in contention to fight for the Premier league; if we lose it is over". Liverpool enters the match seven points clear of Man City and can make the climb for Pep Guardiola's side nearly unachievable with a road victory.
