Jurgen Klopp ‘disliked’ Liverpool’s ‘body language’ in Brighton draw
| Today Headlines | News Today
The German, whose side maintained their Premier League unbeaten record, saw his side make up for it after goals from Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane when Enock Mwepu and Leonardo Trossard made a significant turnaround for the team outside.
“It looks like a defeat,” Klopp told the BBC.
“It’s not just because we were leading 2-0, it’s because we scored two of the most beautiful goals I’ve ever seen scored, which were turned down.
“The pressing goal for Sadio was just unlucky, if you want to teach pressing you would show that situation. But banned for handball, I guess.
“In the second half, we weren’t good enough. Body language, I didn’t like it all. It was like ‘oh my god this is really hard’. Yes, it was clear before the game.
Letting go of the lead could have big implications in the title race. Although Manchester City lost at home to Crystal Palace, Chelsea’s 3-0 win at Newcastle United took them three points clear at the top of the table.
