He said: “It was really the result I expected.

“Manchester United tried whatever they can but over 90 minutes it was clear they couldn’t withstand City.

“I was calm.”

Klopp confirmed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dejan Lovren both trained ahead of Friday’s clash.

He said: “Dejan trained yesterday, Oxlade-Chamberlain trained.

“We have to see on the others.”
