Reds now on City's level, says Klopp despite loss


The draw for the FA Cup fourth round will take place on Monday 7 January following the match between Wolves and Liverpool.

The only players to have appeared earlier for the Reds are Jack Robinson and Jerome Sinclair, who is the youngest Liverpool player in history at 16 years and six days, and Hoever surpassed Ben Woodburn's record as the club's youngest FA Cup player.

Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool's performance in their defeat at Manchester City indicates how far his side have progressed this term.

Keita is behind Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson, James Milner and fellow new recruit Fabinho in the Liverpool midfield pecking order, but is likely to start against Wolves alongside Adam Lallana. "But the way Klopp makes Liverpool play is absolutely fantastic". "After 29 years not winning the Premier League, to be there to win it now".

Jurgen Klopp said Naby Keita is still adjusting to life at Liverpool and vowed that there is much more to come from the midfielder.

However, they head into this evening's encounter hoping to claim maximum points and reduce Liverpool's points on the table.

However, both Guardiola and Redmond would later say that it was a positive exchange and that the Spaniard was complimenting the player and telling him to be more direct while in possession though he admitted that he should not have approached the player in such a way.

This represents Liverpool's best chance of claiming their nineteenth league crown and first Premier League title in some time - in fact since the 2013/14 season under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers. "Wolves? I don't know, we will see".

It's going to be a hectic few weeks, so all in all, Jürgen Klopp may well be thinking about keeping his calendar as clear as possible heading into a crucial few months for his team.

The Reds slumped to a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Citizens at The Etihad on Thursday night as they suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season at the hands of last term's champions.

I am a big advocate of the FA Cup: it's a wonderful competition and its romance still holds a dear space in my heart.

"Sometimes playing every three days in December it is nearly impossible in that rhythm but against Liverpool the stadium was sold out, the people were closer to us than I have ever seen before". That is the holy grail.
