Klopp: Draw at Spurs not fair


Jurgen Klopp admitted his disappointment at his side being pegged back by Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

James Milner put Liverpool ahead on 42 minutes from the penalty spot and it was just reward for the visitors after they looked dangerous on the break on a number of occasions.

Spurs improved in the second half but could have gone two behind but Sadio Mane's goal was ruled out for a tight offside call on Adam Lallana in the build-up.

Danny Rose levelled matters on 72 minutes and although it came after a period when Spurs had tested Simon Mignolet a number of times, Klopp felt his team should have left with the three points - and had a penalty for a foul by Jan Vertonghen at a set-piece.

"When you take a point at Tottenham for 99 per cent of teams it would be a good thing but today we saw the game different," he told the BBC.

"We played a very good away game against a very strong side. It was our first real mistake and it was a goal so that is not really fair.

"We showed we can be good. We played football and defended really good. It doesn’t feel too brilliant at the moment.

"If the referee waits one second then it is 100 per cent a penalty, do we have to make the corner quicker?

"Ask him what the rules are. We go there (to Burnley) and it is a penalty and today not. I have no idea what is right. I would prefer he said nothing and watched the situation and then it is penalty."

Milner meanwhile also rued not holding on for the victory and spoke about his new left-back position.

"Ultimately we are disappointed," he said. "We didn’t do enough in the second half so it was probably a fair result in the end. We deserved to be in front but in the second half we didn’t come out on the front foot after getting the goal.

"You have got to learn quickly [a new position]. Fortunately I have played in the Premier League long enough to have enough experience. I have played in enough positions throughout my career, I just have to adapt to position

"It seems a long time since we played at Anfield, it has been a tough start.

"We have four points and probably should have had more but the performances are not far off the level we need. As long as we keep performing I am sure more results will come."
