But with Liverpool set to make changes for Monday's third-round FA Cup tie at Wolverhampton Wanderers, the 23-year-old could be given another opportunity to display the talents that led to Klopp waiting 12 months for his arrival from RB Leipzig.

Plus, the more competitions you're in, the greater the chance you have of winning one of them at the end of the season.

There is a word of caution however, and that is that Liverpool had lost four times this season prior to the Man City defeat, and all four of those losses were in cup action, three of them away from home.

City switch their attention from their pursuit of Premier League leaders Liverpool to domestic cup football in the coming days.

But Liverpool, who were last crowned champions in 1990, are haunted by the ghosts of the past when Steven Gerrard's slip let City steal the title from them and once again they were punished for failing to seize the moment.

Liverpool claimed it had gone in, but goalline technology showed that a tiny portion of the ball - just 1.12cm according to Premier League statistics - hadn't crossed the line, meaning the decision to play on was correct.

"I would follow what the people of Liverpool long for and prefer the league win", Krawietz added.

Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool's performance in their defeat at Manchester City indicates how far his side have progressed this term. No, there was no reason [for him not playing recently], just because other boys were in good shape as well.

The wristwatches were said to have been engraved with "Centurions 2018" - following their remarkable record breaking 2017/18 Premier League success, as they won the title with 100 points.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits the "outstanding" Naby Keita has yet to reproduce the form that persuaded him to sign the midfielder - but says he has a bright future at Anfield.

"But could he be a bit more confident in the games? Yes".

"Adam is a player who always wants to, he'd play four games a day if he could. Everything is fine. I am completely happy with Naby", said the Liverpool boss. "There's so much to come and so much influence he can have on each game".
