Jurgen Klopp has given his verdict on Liverpool falling short if Manchester City’s Premier League points record.

After the Reds ended their title drought following a truly dominant campaign, Klopp’s side looked on course to smash the Premier League’s best ever points tally of 100 set by City two seasons ago.

But a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday night means Klopp’s side can only reach 99 points for the season, following on from a 1-1 draw against Burnley on Saturday.

Liverpool were also beaten by City themselves at the beginning of the month, which put the pressure on the Reds if they were to break the record in their remaining games.

But manager Klopp said he felt no disappointment at his Liverpool side not being able to get to 100 points.

“No, not yet at least, I don’t know if it comes,” Klopp told a news conference after goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Reiss Nelson wiped out an opener from Sadio Mane at the Emirates.

“But it’s just I want the points we can get and we will see what it is at the end of the season.

“I cannot make any negative of something really positive, becoming champion, having so early in the season 93 points, I’m not the type of person who makes something negative of it because we cannot get the 100 or two points anymore.

“We get the points we deserve and we will see how many that will be.

“In the moment it’s 93, two games to go, very difficult games, but two games to go and these boys played an exceptional season and nobody can take that away from them.

“But I’m not happy about the game, I’m the opposite, I’m disappointed, angry about a few things, but the game, the game was good and the attitude is good, but we took a break and that’s not good and that’s why we lost the game.”
