Klopp baffled Kompany escaped red for Salah lunge

Jürgen Klopp surprised by Alisson’s footballing skills

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany stands by his tackle on Mohamed Salah in victory over Liverpool.

"I really like Vincent Kompany but how on earth is that not a red card", questioned Klopp.

"He is the last man and he goes in".

That has come fairly out of the blue, with many anticipating he will move on at the end of the season after seven years at Anfield. "It was that or let him go through on goal and the decision was made very quickly in my head".

"I expected that he's playing, I'm happy that he's not seriously injured again, I said before that I was really happy when he was back".

In total, six players were cautioned during the game by Taylor, while it was Kompany's fourth booking in only nine Premier League games this season. We all know that.

"He said, "in the moment", said Klopp.

Liverpool have a chance to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table to 10 points this Thursday when they host defending champions Manchester City. "It is incredible", Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

"But I thought everybody could see why we have the points we have".

He is arguably the best centre half in the world and we spoke to four people who have seen him rise from promising novice to defensive machine.

"We could've drawn, we could've won it".

Klopp highlighted the run to last season's Champions League final, which they lost to Real Madrid, as the moment when a switch flicked.

Do we need blood? Sane scores and the situation with Sadio (Mane) when he hit the post.

But the Dutch defender has played down the incident, claiming the pair were just talking. We are not going to treat it different to any other.

"I don't know exactly, but I heard it was pretty close with our goal". City had counter-attacks especially when we lost the ball, it was really risky. "In the three and a half years, we have had more penalties not given when they were penalties and you think, 'hmph, hmph, hmph'".

"That's why we have the amount of points, that's why we have the results, that's 100 per cent clear".

Yes, with the record we had in December - I'm not sure if another team had a record like this in December - we are in a good moment.
