Liverpool boss Klopp on Walker deleted tweet: I wouldn't have done it

Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester on Wednesday

The impact of a fourth defeat in their past nine league matches was softened by leaders Liverpool being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City 24 hours later, with the gap at the summit standing at five points before City host Arsenal on Sunday.

"The ball didn't roll really, and when you have the ball for 70-80 percent of the time, then it makes life really uncomfortable".

At half-time against Leicester, Liverpool groundstaff only cleared snow in the half of the pitch towards the Kop, the end the Reds were set to attack.

Referee Martin Atkinson deemed that foul worth only a yellow card, and compounded his "crime" in the eyes of home fans, when he did not award Liverpool a second-half penalty following what appeared to be Ricardo Pereira's trip on Naby Keita. "What I would say is if I was Liverpool, there is something not quite right at City, there is a chink in the armour. There was no blood involved but, still, it was a penalty". It is like it is. "That's very good then, but not for now", Klopp added.

A pre-match snow flurry made the playing surface sticky and passing hard and at half-time groundstaff only cleared the penalty area Liverpool were attacking.

"[Mane] would not have been alone [on goal] because Mo Salah would have been around him, it was a two versus [Kasper] Schmeichel situation". I don't know. Defensively I did not see a mistake from Hendo'.

The former Liverpool and Manchester United striker was on punditry duty for the Premier League clash, in which the Reds dropped two points against a side they were fully expected to beat.

"Am I disappointed after we don't win a game?"

Klopp said he was not aware of the tweet, but when told about it, said: "I can not help that".

"Well I always try to look at the positives", Owen told BT Sport. The summer window was unusual for City, as they spent just £61 million in total on just the one player, Riyad Mahrez, as clubs like Fulham and West Ham spent more than that. We wanted to win a football game, we didn't win it and so we don't feel brilliant. He has been published by Curzon Ashton FC, Late Tackle, Manchester City FC, The Mirror, Read Man City and Manchester Evening News. Not too much, to be honest. Pep Guardiola will no doubt point to this result as an example of Liverpool's frailties, especially as we enter the title run in. "That's not exactly what we wanted to have, but still everything is fine in the moment".
