Jurgen Klopp has said that he was ‘not surprised’ at the outcome of Wednesday’s Manchester derby, with Man City beating United 2-0.
While the first half at Old Trafford was pretty even, with neither side able to create too many clear cut chances, Man City took control after the break, with goals from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane securing a crucial win.
The win moved the Citizens back to the top of the Premier League by a single point with just three games to play, with Pep Guardiola’s side currently slogging it out with Liverpool in one of the most epic title battles in years.
However, despite seeing his side deposed from the top of the table and relying on others to get a result against City, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said that he wasn’t surprised at the outcome of the Manchester Derby.
“I was not nervous,” he told Sky Sports News. “It happened exactly as I expected.
“United played very good first half but in this moment they can’t stand City for 90 minutes.
“If nothing really strange happens City would win the game so I was not surprised, not nervous. I assessed myself how it feels – completely calm.”
Despite there being just three very winnable games between City reclaiming the title, Jurgen Klopp hasn’t ruled out his side becoming champions.
“For me all is good and the decision is not made yet,” he added. “It’s not that last night was the final game of the season. It was just another game of City, they deserved to win.”
