Jurgen Klopp

Following Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reiterated that his team “will not stop chasing” the Premier League championship.

The Reds were quickly put under pressure by the defending champions and fell behind 1-0 to Kevin De Bruyne’s deflected strike, but Diogo Jota equalized shortly thereafter.

City took a 2-1 lead at half-time thanks to Gabriel Jesus’ effort, although it might have been more, and Liverpool answered soon after the break via Sadio Mane.

Sunday’s victory maintains City one point ahead of Liverpool at the top of the league, but Klopp has underlined that there is still plenty of football left to play before the season concludes.

“We will not stop chasing,” Klopp told Sky Sports News after the game.

“Seven games left. We have to focus on Benfica, then City – then we focus on the Premier League, then we will see.

“We could have done better but we did a lot of moments really well. The intensity of the game was crazy. We meet again in 6 days – it was good fun. I liked it. The result we have to live with and we can live with it.”

Liverpool have now gone five games without a win over City in all competitions and face City in the FA Cup semi-final following Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Benfica.
