Liverpool defender Alexander-Arnold admits Man City defeat still burns

Vincent Kompany pleads his innocence after fouling Mohamed Salah

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season and 25 points adrift of defending champions Manchester City.

"He is an incredible, outstanding player for us. You can not always dominate".

"Sometimes, when Liverpool broke forward, the Man" clear. It was decided by the finest of margins but when it was over and City had prevailed, Guardiola sank into a chair and talked about what it meant for the rest of the season. City are far too good a side to give up a title without a fight which will in all likelihood go down to the wire.

It is of course nice to win the FA Cup, but no more than that, Jurgen Klopp has one priority this season and it certainly isn't walking up those famous steps at Wembley in May. 'Winning is so addictive that when you taste it you say: 'Wow, I want more of that.' Today, we spoke about that. You have to play in that way in the big games. Arsene Wenger won the domestic cup regularly throughout the last decade of his tenure at the Arsenal but that didn't stop the barrage of criticism he faced for their lack of a title challenge in the Premier League. "It came from the gut, the 12th man is more than just the fans, it's a desire, something from within you can't describe and today it was there and we are a better team when we play with emotion". "You have to make sure you are as good as possible in that game, make the right decisions about the line-up - maybe tough decisions, maybe not that tough - and then we will see". "On to the next one and try to keep playing the same way as we have the last two games and try to not let happen what happened to us a few weeks back".

"Yes we lost 2-1 but no-one would have been surprised if it was a draw and with a little bit of luck we could have won the game", said Klopp, whose side face fellow Premier League club Wolves in the FA Cup third round on Sunday. I prefer to be in this position. We're not going there to get knocked out. Nat was out for a while injured and, when he came back, the situation had moved on. Everybody is going to rotate and everybody is going to play. Against Liverpool he showed it again.

"If that goes in it might have been a completely different game".
