Jürgen Klopp met with the media, as is customary after the thrilling 2-2 draw with Arsenal at . Roberto Firmino's 87th-minute heroics poached a point for the Reds against the league leaders.

Liverpool fell just short of taking all thanks to goalkeeper Aaron Ramsadale's 2 stunning saves in stoppage time. Klopp shared his thoughts on yet another banger of a match versus the Gunners.

Going Down 2-0 is Not So Cool

Uh yeah, no kidding Jurgs… When asked about his team's slow start the Boss came out with this low-grade hilarious moment. He said,” Going 2-0 down is not so cool. The first goal was, I would say, kind of unlucky; Robbo slips, they go inside and then it's two rebounds - I'll have to watch it back, but that's how I saw it in the first place. In the end, Martinelli gets a foot on it. That's the 1-0. The 2-0 happened in a situation which we shouldn't have had that often…”

Praise for The Reaction

Klopp gave credit to Mohamed Salah's goal near the end of the first half for spurring the Reds' comeback. He said, “Then the goal is the most helpful stuff in football because then before half-time it's 2-1 and I think everybody felt we can turn this game around.”

The manager then later rued, missed opportunities for potentially taking all 3 points. “The question I had in my mind when I walked in after the game was, 'How can we not this game?' But we didn't. It's a point and that's OK. It's another step in the right direction I would say. It's the first time in a long time we reacted really well, we didn't fall apart.”

Key Quotes

Klopp kept it real about the team not meeting expectations this year. “So, we have these ups and downs in games and over the season. That's something we didn't have ever before, since six or seven years, but we have it this year and that's obviously the situation we are going through. It's not cool, it's not something we wanted, but we go through this and I said it before the game: you don't sort it overnight.”

He then saved some praise for the Anfield faithful, “'s just we helped creating an atmosphere in the stadium and the people were outstanding, especially in the second half, it was fantastic but that's because of the way we played and that's absolutely cool.”
You know what Jürgen? You’re a pretty cool guy…
