"Above all, we didn't have the right to win around evening time," the Liverpool supervisor said when gotten some information about the Mané episode. "We didn't play sufficient for that. That is my first concern. Particularly in the main half we didn't play adequate football.
"A game is a synopsis of force on the off chance that you need and when we had great energy ready we changed that promptly by parting with the ball. We surrendered the main objective and served the second on a plate however that was not the genuine issue of the game. Second half we played better football, and attempted to make against a truly enthusiastic and profound safeguarding Real side which is troublesome. We scored our objective and that is 'the' positive of the evening. Did we merit more than 3-1? I don't know.
"The circumstance with Sadio – what the ref did this evening I don't comprehend. For me that was something individual since he managed the circumstance with Sadio, which was a reasonable foul, similar to he was a jumper or whatever. From that second on at whatever point Sadio went down he didn't get anything. That isn't right. That is the thing that I advised him after the game, that I thought he was unreasonable with Sadio. That doesn't transform anything by any stretch of the imagination. He didn't lose the game. We were not adequate to improve result, but rather at these times you need simply an 'alright' ref. That would have been sufficient."

Klopp began with Naby Keïta once again Thiago Alcântara however the unexpected choice misfired as the Guinea worldwide worked for 42 minutes prior to being supplanted by the previous Bayern Munich midfielder.

Naby was not liable for that. He didn't play for some time, particularly not from the beginning, and we were bad in the game. Naby was bad in the game but rather I might have made a couple of more changes at that time."
Mohamed Salah's 26th Champions League objective for Liverpool gave Klopp's group a promising sign for the second leg yet the chief surrendered that, without an unstable climate at Anfield, the duty is totally on his players to safeguard the tie.
The Liverpool supervisor added: "obviously, it is totally unique. In the event that you need to have some enthusiastic recollections you watch the Barcelona game back and 80% of it is the air in the arena. Dislike I stay here and say 'rebounds are our thing'. We had allies at that point and I couldn't say whether we can do it yet we will give it an appropriate attempt. It should be a truly precarious assignment for Real Madrid at Anfield with or without allies."
