Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ‘calm’ despite Manchester City’s win over United

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists he was “calm” after watching Manchester City beat rivals Manchester United to return to the top of the Premier League table.

Second-half goals from Bernardo Silva and substitute Leroy Sane on Wednesday night saw City move one point clear of Klopp’s Reds with three matches remaining.

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.”
