  • Klopp and Guardiola defend Liverpool's attitude after 4-0 loss
Sharjah24 – Reuters: Juergen Klopp and Pep Guardiola insisted that Liverpool had been fully focused and hadn't taken their foot off the gas, despite Manchester City's comfortable 4-0 win over the newly crowned champions at the Etihad on Thursday.
City looked sharper and hungrier for most of the game, taking a 3-0 lead by half-time, while Klopp's Liverpool were well below their usual levels of intensity.

Liverpool had previously lost only one league game this season, leading some observers to suggest last week's title win - their first in 30 years - and subsequent celebrations had affected play on Thursday.
