  • Klopp not nervous amid Premier League title fight

Liverpool got off to the flawless start with Sadio Mane firing them ahead in the third minute, cutting in from the left and beating Kasper Schmeichel with a trademark strike into the far corner.

Jurgen Klopp has hit back at Kyle Walker after the Englishman mocked Liverpool's 1-1 draw against Leicester City on Tuesday.

"You saw that the ball didn't roll really", Klopp said.

True, Fulham will be buoyed by their midweek win over Brighton but we shouldn't forget that the Seagulls are poor on the road too and that a home win was expected - according to the betting - in that match, so it wasn't a huge surprise.

"I think everyone agrees it could have been a penalty but I don't know why it was not given", Klopp said.

Manchester City's loss to Newcastle the night before presented Liverpool with a great chance to extend their lead, but an unbalanced team and icy conditions made for a hard evening against the resilient Foxes.

The Newcastle defeat was City's fourth in the league this season but Guardiola felt there was no lack of motivation to do better for a side fighting on four fronts including the Champions League.

Klopp said he was not aware of the tweet, but when told about it, said: "I can not help that".

Tuchel PSG can cope without Neymar

"Naby is an outstanding player but he still has to improve; minutes, games, language, all that stuff".

"In the end it's all about showing on the pitch and we're not going to be affected by that".

City kick off a crucial week for their title hopes when they host Arsenal on Saturday. "But I don't bring it together with the Man City game". 'That's not how I understand sport'. We wanted to win a football game, we didn't win it and so we don't feel brilliant.

"We were just preparing for the game and this morning we trained and nobody talked about it [the City result]".

"I hear people say it's unsporting, but it's an advantage, if their box is clear then it's better to defend. That didn't happen tonight and so we are not happy about that, but it's not more".

"We want everyone to cheer us on and keep pushing even if we have tough moments, even if we're 1-0 down or maybe more".

The Reds return to Premier League action with a hard trip to West Ham United on Monday night.
