The premier League giants, Liverpool and Manchester City played out an intense draw in the premier league on Sunday afternoon with the premier league title on the line but neither side could land a final punch ahead as they approach end of the season
Klopp admits Liverpool need to win remaining games to win title
Trent Alexander-Arnold has revealed what message Jurgen Klopp had for the Liverpool players at half-time on Sunday.
The Reds came back from behind twice to prevent Manchester City from pulling away in the title race in a 2-2 draw at the Etihad. Klopp’s challengers were not at their best but remain in the race after an electric match this weekend.
Speaking after the match, Alexander-Arnold said: “We want to win every game we’re in, no matter the opposition we come up against. It says a lot about us that we’ve got that slight disappointment not to come here and win.
“It was very important for us not to lose this game, we’re still in a decent position but it is in their hands. A few years ago, this is what happened.
“They went on a really good run and we weren’t able to capitalise on that. Hopefully, this time around, they will drop a few points for us.
“The first half in general wasn’t ourselves. We didn’t play the football we wanted to and the time we did play the football, we scored our goals.
“That was one of the messages the manager said to us at half-time: Play our football. We came out with a point to prove and scored the early goal, but couldn’t create too many chances after that.
“They had the better chances. There is not really a disappointment of not putting our chances away, it is the lack of chances we created. We know they had weaknesses and, when we did play well, we used the weaknesses they have got.
“People might say we were hanging on at the end, but that’s part of the game.”
Sharing his view on how the title race could play out, Alexander-Arnold added:
“There’s seven games. Every week there is a surprising result in the Premier League. We’re just hoping we are not on the end of one and City are.
“It is seven games, a lot can happen. Who knows what will happen, hopefully we make it exciting. It might go down to the last day again.”
