Jurgen Klopp tells Liverpool they need killer edge after Moscow draw

Philippe Coutinho scored a well-worked first-half equaliser to cancel our Fernando's free-kick but, despite dominating the attacking play, the Reds had to settle for a point in the Russian capital.

After Liverpool was held to a disappointing draw in Tuesday's game, Klopp had another translator supplied by Spartak — but not quite as soon as he would have liked.

One of the main worries when both Liverpool and Manchester United were drawn against Russian teams in the Champions League group stages was security. The performance was decent but not enough to win the game.

Recording 16 attempts on goal compared to Moscow's four over the 90 minutes, Klopp also conceded that the Reds should have been sharper in the final third.

"The use of flares during the next match can lead to much more serious sanctions for Spartak, including hosting Champions League home matches behind closed doors", they said in a statement. In the end, that's always our fault, but we will carry on and carry on like this, or even better.

Following the match, Klopp refused to criticise Karius.

The uncommonly long stoppage-time was due to Spartak Moscow goalkeeper Artyom Rebrov coming off the field injured after a clash with Salah. He then seemed to realise what he had done and said, "Aaah, now you have your headline!"

Emre Can and Jordan Henderson are likely to join him in the middle of the park.

"I do think you have to have a number one goalkeeper and you need a strong a number two and you have to make that decision".

Carrera added: "We played a great game against a very good team".

"It's all about performing", the website quoted Klopp as saying.

"I just want to praise everyone".

"We could have created more chances that is the crazy thing. Yes, we got a draw against a very good team".
