Klopp Not Happy as Liverpool Failed to Beat Leicester

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp Klopp Not Happy as Liverpool Failed to Beat Leicester insists his team was denied a "clear penalty" that may have given them success over Leicester on Wed and a seven-point lead within the Premier League title race.

A Sadio Mane goal within the third minute was off out by Leicester defender Harry Maguire's equaliser in first-half stoppage time.

"We put them under pressure however they did rather well. we were unlucky with the goal within the last second before interruption. you have got to require it how it is."
Leicester manager Claude Puel had insisted before kick-off that his facet would, as they'd done before, raise their game against a number one club.
And the Frenchman was cleared by a battling show that left his team eleventh within the table.

"At the end we had additional chances and it may have been better at the end."
