Klopp mentioned afterwards that his players had been downcast after failing to win following a run of 12 straight victories within the league at Anfield. “First and foremost we should stop behaving like it is a funeral,” he mentioned. “it’s a little bit the mood [in the dressing room]. In my life much worse things have happened. If we are only ready for the things that work and then when the first stone is thrown you start to worry you stop doing it.”
“If we’d have received it wouldn’t improve the likelihood we win in opposition to Aston Villa [on Tuesday] so that’s how it’s. We will go there, we’ll put together and we’ll attempt. The solely likelihood we have now for issues to go our manner is to win now. The boys are completely within the temper they need to be now, very dissatisfied, that’s tremendous. Imagine City lost – and I can’t see it – and we are able to’t use it [benefit from the advantage]. That could be insane.
“The boys are absolutely in the mood they should be now, they are very disappointed. I heard the Spring is coming to England so maybe we can use the weather.”
Conte praised the bravery of his players forward of a defining sport in opposition to Arsenal on Thursday within the race for fourth place. He mentioned: “I asked my players to be good defensively and I think we didn’t concede many chances. We conceded a goal from a deflection. With the ball I ask them to be brave because in every game Liverpool counter-press you. In a good way so you can find a lot of space. We created a lot of chances to score so I think a draw was fair.”
He added: “Liverpool have created a foundation with Jurgen and they did a fantastic job and in seven years they won a lot. He created a monster – in a good way – and he has to be satisfied. To do this you have to have time and patience and a lot of things. You have to go step by step.”
