Jurgen Klopp says draw is ‘result we have to live with’

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says his side’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City is a “result we have to live with”.

Leaders City remain one point clear of Liverpool at the top with seven games remaining after a pulsating game.

The meeting between the country’s two outstanding sides lived up to its pre-match billing and in the end there was nothing to separate them, with the destination of the Premier League title still hanging in the balance.

Liverpool and Manchester City meet again at Wembley next Saturday in the FA Cup semi-final and could yet meet in Paris on 28 May in the Champions League final.

Both Premier League games between the teams this season have ended as draws, the first time they’ve shared draws in both league meetings in a season since 2012-13.

Guardiola said he expected the title race to go to the last day of the season.

Goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus either side of a Diogo Jota strike put City 2-1 up at half-time but Sadio Mane levelled seconds after the restart to change the tone of the match.

But neither side could find a winner, leaving the league title too close to call with just seven matches to go.

Billed as one of the biggest matches in Premier League history — between two of the finest sides English football has seen — the contest at a crackling Etihad lived up to the hype.
