Jurgen Klopp on the draw against Newcastle United and the Daniel Sturridge penalty decision


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his side should have been awarded during their 2-2 with Newcastle United.

The Reds failed to move closer to the Top Four as they threw away a two-goal lead against Rafa Benitez's side.

But the German was frustrated after referee Andre Marriner opted not to give a penalty after Daniel Sturridge was tripped by Cheick Tiote.

"We did really, really well in the first half against a highly-motivated side in their situation," Klopp said.

"Now they are happy with a point but before the game they maybe thought they could win against Liverpool at Anfield.

"In the first half we were clearly the better team and we were clearly the better team in the second half too, only not around the two goals we conceded. Two shots on target and two goals – it sounds not too good and is not too good. But in this moment we have to accept it.

"We really did well in a lot of parts of the game. We cannot think about the reason [why we didn't win] too much, to be honest. We have to carry on and work.

"Today, especially the first half was really good. In the second half after the draw, usually the game can change but it didn't. We were still dominant and we played football. In an intensive game, after an intensive game, against a rested opponent, we did really well.

"But you then need a little bit of luck in decisive moments; it's an inch on the boot and the ball goes there. We had this penalty situation [with Daniel Sturridge] – I think it was a clear penalty.

"2-2 feels not too good but we have to accept it and we can accept it."
