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.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Huddersfield on Friday night, Klopp said he had expected the result.
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.”
