Jurgen Klopp could not say anything about why Liverpool failed to score in three consecutive league games for the first time in 16 years after a 0-0 draw at home against Manchester United.
The defending champions needed the agility of goalkeeper Alisson Becker to save an unbeaten record in the Premier League at Anfield to 68 games when the Brazilian goalkeeper denied attempts by Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.
Klopp’s side has now failed to win in the last four games of the league and then fall to fourth place, three points behind United.
“If we won 1-0, I’d think it was completely fine,” Klopp said.
“You can’t deny Manchester United chances for 90 minutes. You never could. They’re in a good moment.
“With all the things said before the game – they’re flying and we’re struggling – my boys played a good game tonight. But we didn’t score. That’s the most important thing in football,” he added.
In the match that took place early this morning, Liverpool dominated the match in the first half before United bounced back in the second half, but their attack was successfully denied by Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.
