It was a night to forget for Liverpool fans after seeing their team failing to see past London club West Ham United in the Premier League encounter that ended 1-1.

While admitting that his side were not good defensively, manager Jurgen Klopp made it clear that the match official Kevin Friend was responsible for his side’s draw because he favoured the London side.

A goal by Senegal international Sadio Mane in the first half gave the Reds a lead but was canceled by Michail Antonio.

Manager Jurgen Klopp said the fact that Milner was offside and the referee failed to recognize it, he went ahead to do same for West Ham United by overlooking their offside as a compensation.

Although the former Borussia Dortmund boss claimed he was calm and made up his mind not to say a word after the controversial goal but stated that the referee was unfair in his decisions.

However, Liverpool are now three points ahead of Manchester City but that could be canceled should Man City see out a victory against Everton on Wednesday.

Howbeit, Liverpool boss is as calm as ever as he hopes his side can still deliver the EPL title at the end of the season.
