Jurgen Klopp’s side, Liverpool managed to take a point at the Etihad Stadium thanks to Trent Alexander-Arnold’s equaliser in the 80th minute.

It wasn’t a very good performance from the Reds, and Klopp believes his side would have won the tie had they played well.

“It’s a really good moment,” Liverpool boss,” Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Man City away from home.

“It’s a tough place to come – it’s no coincidence that they win that many home games. You’d need more time to prepare for the game properly, especially in these kind of circumstances.

“We’re still in a process. If we’d played really well today, we could have won – We didn’t. We played OK. We caused them problems as well, but our good moments didn’t feel that good to us [in the first half]. We had to stretch ourselves again [in the second half]. We adapted our positioning slightly.

“I told the boys at half-time, imagine what it would be like if we were playing well. We had to settle a little bit.

“We had good moments. I wish we could have had more. For the moment we’re in, we should take the point as a success. I have nothing to complain about there.”
