Liverpool

Klopp - 'It was strange'

24th February 2019, 18:12 by Tom Hill

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp concedes his team produced a confusing display after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Manchester United.

The Reds were unable to find a way through on Sunday afternoon despite the Red Devils suffering three first-half injuries.

Liverpool have at least returned to the top of the Premier League table, with rivals Manchester City in action in the EFL Cup final this weekend.

Klopp lost Roberto Firmino to injury in the first half but they only had one shot on target inside the 90 minutes.

When asked about his side's display, Klopp told BBC Match of the Day: "We might feel like we won a point or lost two. We started exactly how we wanted to start. The injury crisis then started.

"We were without chances - only United had one big one when Alisson made an excellent save - the rest were set-pieces. It kept the game open but we didn't create enough and that's the truth. We didn't do well to be honest. We take that. It is a point gained because we have one more than before but it doesn't feel like that.

"The boys didn't feel okay. I could see it in their faces. It was strange. I was thinking 'what is gong on here today'. They lost momentum and rhythm and couldn't really get it back."
