We should all be 99 percent happy with what we saw at Anfield yesterday. West Brom were lucky to only be two goals behind.
But the evening lost a tiny bit of shine with the late goal we conceded – not necessarily because we did concede, but because it cost us the chance of going top of the league.
If we had held onto our two-goal winning margin, we would have displaced Arsenal in first place. As it was, we ended the night in second place on goal difference.
After City’s draw today, we would still have been off the top as the Mancs regained top spot.
But Klopp isn’t concerned, in his post-match comments, he joked that no one cared about being top of the table in October.
“Who wants to be top in October?” he said (Echo).
“We have 20 points, it was not possible that we have more tonight. So that’s okay. For me it’s really difficult to be satisfied with football games. But a 2-1 keeps you more awake than a 4-0, that’s how it is.
On the plus side, we now enter an easier run of fixtures, and with many of our rivals playing each other in the coming weeks we have a chance to legitimately make first place our own.
