Jurgen Klopp praised his “dangerous” Liverpool team after they missed the chance to return to the top of the Premier League following a 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Sunday.

The Liverpool boss fielded a fearsome-looking starting line-up at the Etihad featuring Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.

Gabriel Jesus leveled for Pep Guardiola’s men before Kevin De Bruyne failed to hit the target from the spot three minutes before half-time.

A share of the points between the sides that have combined to win the title for the past three seasons leaves Liverpool in third, just a point off the top, while City is five points behind with a game in hand.

“We were really good and dangerous,” he added. “We were ready to make little passes — there were moments we played too many long balls. Time to time we just wanted to get rid of the ball.”

“It is not easy to play but we adjusted a bit and had more courage to stay high. We made a good goal and unfortunately we missed a penalty. In games or opponents like Liverpool, if you miss a penalty is it more difficult.”
