Klopp: Liverpool deserved more from City draw

Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is content with a point, despite believing his side should have taken more from Sunday's 1-1 draw with Manchester City.

James Milner put the Reds ahead from the penalty spot early in the second half, but an 69th-minute equaliser from Sergio Aguero ensured a draw at the Etihad Stadium.

"The summary of the game is positive," the German said after reflecting on the game's missed chances.

"It's the way you have to play against good sides; it was intense, we defended well. We had some problems but we came back, we took the game, we were the better side and they came back.

"We gave them the opportunity to score and they did it. That's how it is. It's not that I'm not satisfied; it's more that actually, I expect things like this from us. I cannot run around after a draw against Man City. But, of course it's a success.

Although Klopp thought the Reds "deserved to win a little bit more", the draw keeps them in the top four, although Manchester United and Arsenal are close  behind.

"We are still in a battle, that's how it is," Klopp added on Champions League qualification.

"There is one outstanding side this year and they will be champions probably. That is then well deserved and all the rest fight with all they have for the Champions League."
