De Bruyne: ‘We should have scored more’

Speed, but above all talent on the pitch provides a rare quality. “The intensity of the competition is crazy! I like that. This is a completely different level.Horizontal concentration of the two teams…”, a taste of Klopp.”You are the coach of this type of competition“, his opponent at Manchester City, Pep Guardiola, launched his team. But a question arose after this meeting: Who really benefits from this draw? Manchester City holding the lead seven days after the game? It’s possible. Even listening to the protagonists, perhaps the best performer this Sunday was Liverpool.

Because Mersey Club did not show the usual rigor in the first quarter, Manchester City quietly maneuvered. But the Red Army managed to make a comeback twice. “We feel like we’ve missed a huge transfer opportunity, but there’s a lot of games left“, Guardiola slipped.”Very complicated, Also watch out for Kevin De Bruyne. Honestly, I think we played really well and should have scored more. But that’s the way it is. I thought we should have had (a wider lead at the break) but we were still ahead.The way we started the second half was disappointing. “

It’s not the end of the world, we’re still racing

In Liverpool, the Echo was a little different. “I think we got off to a good start, but sometimes we get a little bit of a mess. Obviously we knew from the start that we would be under pressure and they are a great team. I found out that we got together to give them problems.Nice to be back twice”, Henderson explained before formulating the balance sheet.”We didn’t lose.It’s not the end of the world, we’re still playing, so there’s good and bad“.

In the end, it will be necessary to wait a few weeks, and of course fourteen games, to really know who benefits from the draw. But this Sunday night, fans won’t be complaining. Glad to be on the show and think the suspense is still there. “If you’re playing for another club, playing yesterday and training today, watch Manchester City vs Liverpool. “I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t seen it, but to be in this game. I can’t help but be amazed. I love it. Let’s move on and see where we end up“, concluded Klopp.
