Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that he is satisfied with a point against Arsenal.

The German saw his side open the scoring, twice if you count the disallowed goal which should have stood, before the hosts grabbed a point thanks to a late eqauliser.

But he was not happy with the balance of play, despite his side creating several clear chances, and wanted his players to have more control of the ball.

“A point is a good result. Unai Emery can say the same, but we had clear chances.” he told BBC Sport.

“When Arsenal chase the game they throw everyone on the pitch which is really cool and we were not as compact as I wanted.

“Our workhorses in midfield, we put too much on their shoulders. And it was one time we didn’t close Alex Iwobi and he plays the pass for the goal.

“It was very intense, Arsenal are in a very good moment. A point at Arsenal will always be a good result, so we take that and move on.” he added.

Klopp was not happy with the decision to rule out the goal scored by forward Sadio Mane in the first-half, which replays showed was very much onside and should have been allowed.

“I think it was a goal, it should have been a goal.” he continued.

“He runs to the ball because he doesn’t think he is offside and then the referee whistles.” he added.
