Manchester City Will Slip Up - Chelsea Legend Urges Blues To Keep Going

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted that his on-field argument with forward Sadio Mane was "not a big thing" after the pair were caught on television cameras having an animated discussion at the end of the Reds' 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Saturday, 25 November. Our position is still OK, but we have to improve, we can do better but the boys did well and after a game like this, a performance like tonight should not be taken for granted because it is so hard. It's a little bit more hard when Chelsea played with eight defenders more or less.

However, the former Italian manager said he is focused on the positives of Chelsea's display, less than 72 hours after they completed a 5,000-mile round trip to Baku to face Qarabag in the Champions League.

"We need Man City, and they will, to slip up somewhere in the season, for sure and when they slip up we have to be right up their backsides and take full advantage of it".

But Oliver allegedly refused Liverpool's requests to make the substitution a number of times and Willian scored the equalising goal before the change (Adam Lallana for Philippe Coutinho) was made.

"I must be honest and be disappointed, but today we put in a good performance in the first half, we were always solid with the ball and in the second created a lot of chances", he said. An wonderful reaction from my players.

It's the best possible result for Pep Guardiola and his side, as it saw two title contenders miss out on obtaining an additional two points from this contest.

"If we were in their shoes we'd be delighted with that", he said. "It was important we didn't lose today".
