(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER JUERGEN KLOPP SAYING: "If somebody would have told me after both games against man City we'd be four points up I would have paid money for it you cannot believe." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER JUERGEN KLOPP SAYING: "Post in or post out can make a massive difference and today we witnessed that so.

I don'rt know, but I heard it was pretty close with our goal." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER JUERGEN KLOPP SAYING: "They quite often had to make sliding tackles and blocks in their own six yard box and that doesn't happen too often for City I would say, so that's a big credit to my boys that we did that, but at the end we lost and we take that, it's not the first game we lost in our lives and from that point of view it's not really cool but it's one of the three results that could have happened.

It's the one we didn't like but we still have to take it and now let's keep on going." 6.

WHITE FLASH 7.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER JUERGEN KLOPP SAYING: "It's not the first time, last year they beat us 5-0, it's not the first time, yes, whatever you want to make of it but it's not a surprise for me that City can beat us.

I don't think it had anything to do with any mental strength for one side or weakness on the other side, it was a bit unlucky." STORY: The four point lead Liverpool have at the top of the Premier League even after a 2-1 defeat to rivals Manchester City on Thursday was still impressive given their lack of title-winning experience, according to manager Juergen Klopp.

The match in Manchester was billed by many as an early title decider, where a Liverpool victory would have given them a 10-point lead at the top with 17 games to go, having played City home and away.

However, goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane, either side of a Robert Firmino equaliser, ended Liverpool's unbeaten Premier League season and moved City to within touching distance of top spot.
