Jurgen Klopp disappointed penalty appeal

Should Liverpool have had at least one penalty at Old Trafford?

Jurgen Klopp admits he is feeling "massively rubbish" after seeing mistakes cost Liverpool in a 2-1 defeat to arch-rivals Manchester United.

A stacked defense was what anyone expected from Mourinho's Manchester United, so it's surprising that Liverpool were fairly unprepared for it. The mistakes were obvious - around the second balls we were not there and we can not leave Dejan alone in the challenge there and nobody's around for the second ball.

There is now a five-point gap between the two sides, with Liverpool potentially finishing the weekend in fourth if Tottenham beat Bournemouth on Sunday. It doesn't work like this.

"It was not that United's style won or our style lost, the two situations have nothing to do with style".

"But in the moment I can not, and I don't want to, think about anything else".

The flight crew announced there would be an emergency landing, urging passengers to "brace for impact" and keep their heads down. Then, flight attendants began telling everyone on-board they would be making an emergency landing and to keep their heads down.

"It didn't go our way because of the two goals we conceded", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.

"Don't take too much risk, you pass, you come around the touchline, you have the crosses, you have the set-pieces, you have the finishes from distance, 18 yards, all these things".

"First of all, we don't need to concede the two goals in the first half; for the rest, it was hard to break them down, they sit and hope for the best on the break", the defender continued.

"If you are in Manchester you need a little bit of luck or help with right decisions, not wrong decisions".

"We want the supporters behind us, since I've been here they've been really good". That's hard, but not to change anymore. "We will carry on, of course, but in the moment it's a big disappointment".

The Anfield club host Watford on Merseyside on Saturday, before then facing Crystal Palace away two weeks later due to the global break.
