Jurgen Klopp aims dig at Manchester United performance after Liverpool draw

Mohamed Salah slotted in an 84th-minute penalty to deny United victory but Liverpool will rue dropping points against a United side that has won one of their past six Premier League games.

United fans heckled Klopp with a chorus of “Jurgen’s cracking up” and again at full-time as he approached the tunnel. Klopp cupped his ear in response.

League leaders Arsenal travel to Old Trafford next month and Klopp suggested he would cheer on United if Liverpool are still competing for the title.

“Probably,” Klopp said. “If we are still around then that would be great. But Arsenal is a good football team. If they play like today, Arsenal will win the game, I am 100% sure.

“I am sorry to say that. It is a fact we should have won both games but didn’t.”

Salah’s leveller marked the 29th goal that has been scored in the 80th minute or beyond in United’s 90-minute games this season and the fourth late goal they have conceded in the last three games.

United have dropped seven points from winning positions late on in their last three matches.

“First of all, it’s very disappointing when you put yourselves three times in the week in a winning position just before the end of the game but then drop points,” Ten Hag admitted. “We have all seen some poor decisions.

“All three games had poor decisions and not every time the same players. What is not helping is we have 27 different shapes in the backline, the routines aren’t there, but still we have to improve. The sooner the better.”
