However, his underwhelming reaction was ‘oh,’ though it seems that was principally to do with the fact that Liverpool still need to concentrate on their own fixtures before worrying about what anyone else is doing, and City, despite the loss, are still in the box seat.
When asked about Diogo Jota’s availability for selection, Klopp was unequivocal in his response.
