Klopp then added: "The season so far point-wise is really successful but it doesn't feel like that - comparison with free-flowing football last season in a few games, and City and Chelsea playing a good season".

"In the end you have to score goals in a game and if you think about how often we were in the box and around, that's what you have to do in a game but you have to make the last decision in the right way and we didn't".

"As I said, they deserved it with the passion they fought [with]".

That, though, will be much easier said than done - despite the fact they outclassed the Parisians at Anfield in September. In Liverpool we controlled the game, tonight we didn't.
