Jurgen Klopp reacts to West Ham draw, slams referee

Liverpool can create breathing space by gunning for, and achieving, a fantastic four against West Ham again. "If you get a point at West Ham, that's fine".

Liverpool missed the chance to move five points clear of Manchester City again at the top of the Premier League as Michail Antonio's equaliser meant they were held to a 1-1 draw away to West Ham.

The West Ham captain and his manager, Manuel Pellegrini, both said that the home side had deserved to win the game ahead of Liverpool, whose first-half goal should have been disallowed for offside. That, of course, is not ideal.

'We lost balls in different moments. Could we have played better? Having failed to make much of an impact against Leicester City last time out, Salah will be gunning to fire his team to a win on Monday night.

James Milner was clearly offside in the buildup to Mane's goal, although Klopp felt a draw was a fair result.

"We just didn't enjoy the game enough", added Klopp. We did that in a lot of situations pretty well, but they reacted with the 4-5-1 with Snodgrass in the half-space, a more defensive formation. These games are hard. Instead West Ham's manager harked back to how Klopp knocked his Málaga team out of the Champions League with Borussia Dortmund in 2013. As I said, the preparation for the game was far away from being flawless and we still got a point. We could have played better tonight.

Pellegrini added that he had done another of his former employers a favour.

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez will undergo surgery on the lower leg fracture he sustained against Burnley in December, the Premier League club said on Monday. I see your faces already, you feel a bit sorry with us.

Liverpool overwhelmed West Ham on the opening weekend of the season, and they will be out to do likewise here, to show Manchester City that they are coping well with the pressure of staying out in front in the title picture.
