Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp was seen frustrated after watching his team concluding the Merseyside derby against Everton in a 1-1 draw at Premier League on Sunday.
“I thought we did everything to win the game. If somebody would have thought after our last game that we would try to play a little bit of football, then I think everybody saw that the attitude of the boys was outstanding, outstanding tonight; absolutely spot-on, ready for every challenge, ready for everything and playing football against a deep, deeper defending team,” Klopp said in the post-match press conference.
The home side took the control of the game in the first-half, thanks to a sublime curler by Mohamed Salah in the 42nd minute.
“We forced them into their own box, had our moments. It’s difficult to score a lot, especially when the opponent doesn’t change their style or whatever after they are 1-0 down. That doesn’t make it easier. But we controlled the game apart from one situation – and this situation decided the game at the end,” the 50-year-old German football coach added.
Wayne Rooney brought Everton back in the game through a penalty corner, scoring an equaliser in the 77th minute.
“I don’t think it was a penalty. It is like it is. We have to take it. If you all think it is a penalty, then all the other challenges in midfield between Williams and Dom Solanke should have been a free-kick. They weren’t free-kicks but this was a penalty,” the discouraged manager added.
