Jürgen Klopp criticises Kyle Walker for mocking Liverpool on Twitter

The Reds extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points over Manchester City with a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester. "I can not control it. But how can I criticise if I don't understand it?"

He later deleted the tweet and a City supporter stuck the boot in, writing: "Kyle Walker has rattled Jurgen Klopp, genius".

A pre-match snow flurry made the playing surface sticky and passing hard and at half-time groundstaff only cleared the penalty area Liverpool were attacking. The Liverpool manager denied it was a result of gamesmanship.

The England international's first of six Premier League appearances came towards the end of the 2015-16, but the then-youngster failed to score in his 82 minutes on the pitch. The pitch was hard.

Both Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren have had spells on the injury table, meaning Klopp has often been forced to deploy midfielder Fabinho as a central defender. "It was another hard start to the game".

The evening had started in ideal fashion for Liverpool as Mane scored their fastest league goal in almost three years, with just two minutes on the clock, only for Maguire to level in first-half injury-time. It was clear that our ground staff tried to clear it but they didn't have enough man power. I would say it is a 100 per cent (goalscoring) chance at least that is something - a situation where there is a goalscoring chance that tells the ref he has to give a red card.

"I've heard people say their was an issue with sportsmanship, but it's to their advantage as well, if their box is clean it's better to defend as well".

Gomez started running again early last month but Jurgen Klopp revealed on Friday that the 21-year-old will not be ready for the first leg of Liverpool's Champions League clash with Bayern Munich on February 19 and would not categorically rule out the prospect of an operation.

Responding to Walker's tweet, Pep Guardiola said: "The players tweeting or social media, Instagram, I can not control it".

"The situation is simple, we improve the way we play, and with the details we didn't do well, we have options to change that". "That is not exactly what we wanted to have but, still, everything is fine at the moment".

Speaking at his post-match media conference about Liverpool FC's squandered opportunity on Wednesday night, Klopp said: "Am I disappointed after we don't win a game?"
