Klopp: Manchester City defeat an important step for Liverpool

FA Cup LIVE

Ki-Jana Hoever became the youngest player ever to play for Liverpool in the FA Cup on Monday night after Dejan Lovren was forced off with an injury minutes into their third round tie with Wolves at Molineux. "We don't let one defeat ruin our season".

Thursday's defeat was the first time Liverpool had lost in the league season, but they still remained four points clear at the top of the table from their title rivals.

Klopp will have to make the best use out of his squad, with Liverpool pushing to win the Premier League this season.

And so, in Paul Merson's opinion, Liverpool should abandon the Champions League and focus on winning the Premier League instead.

Jurgen Klopp's side do have a four days break in between their trip to the Midlands and their next Premier League game against Crystal Palace, which will be held at Anfield.

"Sometimes it is necessary to fight and win in that way - (you) live the game like it is the last game in your life and against Liverpool we were there".

There's a bet I really like ahead of this game, and it's the straightforward Liverpool win at a scarcely believable [2.04]. But he has trained with us, he still does that and he is a joy to watch.

Klopp said when asked if Monday was a good opportunity for Keita to make his case: "I can tell you it is a good opportunity for all the players".

Liverpool claimed it had gone in, but goalline technology showed that a tiny portion of the ball - just 1.12cm according to Premier League statistics - hadn't crossed the line, meaning the decision to play on was correct.

"I've been speaking to some of the guys inside Liverpool Football Club and they rate Curtis and Rafael Camacho, who are both making their debuts this evening", Shearer said on BBC One.

"But could he be a bit more confident in the games? Yes".

And that is by backing the Reds with a -1 handicap, which is available to back at [4.0].

Liverpool FC are still looking to take home their first major trophy under Klopp since his appointment back in October 2015.
