Jurgen Klopp conceded that securing a top four finish was now Liverpool‘s main aim, after his side were thrashed 4-1 by Manchester City at Anfield. The result leaves them 10 points adrift of the table-topping Cityzens, who also have a game in hand over all of their closest rivals.
After a slow start, Sunday’s game sprung early in the second half when Ilkay Gundogan – who missed a penalty before the break – smashed home a rebound from close range to put the visitors 1-0 up.
Mohamed Salah then levelled things up from the spot before Alisson gifted City two goals with a pair of shocking mistakes. Phil Foden then added some gloss to the scoreline with a fine solo strike.
“We played really good football. I really liked it. In the first half we played really good football,” he said. “Against City it doesn’t mean you are 2-0 or 3-0 up it only means you’re in the game. I’m not sure what the possession was but it was for sure not what it’s like usually for City.
“Start of the second half, City changed their system slightly to a 4-4-2. It’s a little adaptation in the end but in that start of the second half we didn’t give enough options to play and gave the first goal away.
