England — Jurgen Klopp has said Liverpool were denied a stonewall penalty at the second half of the 1-1 draw.

Liverpool missed out on the opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to seven points as Harry Maguire canceled out Sadio Mane opener directly. However, Klopp felt Ricardo Pereira in the minute Martin Atkinson brought down in the penalty area Naby Keita to wave off the protests.

“I think he’d the best position. “Usually I have to explain penalties which were penalties, and you ask me if it was a soft penalty. “There wasn’t any blood involved today, but it is a punishment because one of our players is at the box. It’s like it is. It won’t change. Nothing to worry about, keep on going.”

Klopp also believed the goal scorer of Leicester’s equalizer was fortunate to only receive a yellow card for a cynical foul on Mane six minutes before he left it 1-1.

“Then we have the situation with Maguire,” he continued. “The second time in a match where a striker of ours is brought down in the halfway line, and we treat it like it was I do not know where.” [Mane] would not have been alone [on target] since Mo Salah would have been around him, it had been a two versus [Kasper] Schmeichel situation. If that’s not a real goalscoring scenario, I do not know what’s.”

After the reigning champions suffered a shock defeat at Newcastle United on 30, Regardless of the draw, Liverpool moved five points clear of Manchester City at the league standings. “Am I disappointed after we do not win a match? “But I don’t bring it with the Man City game. What shall we do now, although all these thoughts are understood by me?

“It’s easy to ask all these questions, but we have to make certain we aren’t influenced too much by those things. The boys are normal human beings, I am a human being. We wish to win a game and we don’t, so we do not feel brilliant. But we have to talk about what exactly does it mean for your Man City thing? Not to tell the truth.

“We’ve got a point more than before. That is not what we desired to own, but still, everything is fine at the present time.”
