Liverpool didn't try to gain snow advantage vs. Leicester - Klopp

Mohamed Salah Liverpool 2018-19

The biggest game of the weekend takes place at the Etihad with Man City badly needing the win after the shock reversal against Newcastle in midweek and Arsenal looking for points in the increasingly tight top four race.

Leicester equalised right on the stroke of half-time through Harry Maguire as Liverpool were then frustrated in their attempts to find a victor in the second half.

In yesterday's other game, Wilfried Zaha scored and was later sent off for Crystal Palace in a 1-1 draw at Southampton.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp appeared unimpressed when asked about it by reporters on Friday.

"We had even commercial things going on around the pitch - next time, first of all, there will be no commercial if it is snowing, and we will have enough shovels to clear the pitch".

Contrary to Klopp's comments, the Anfield groundstaff cleared only half the snow away from the pitch at the break - at the end that Liverpool were attacking in the second period - but the home side could not score.

Klopp's side were never able to find their full speed and rhythm and a solid Leicester drew level on the stroke of halftime when a Liverpool clearance was headed deep into the area by Ben Chilwell and found England defender Harry Maguire who slotted home.

Chicago Faces Extreme Temperatures More Frigid Than Antarctica
But despite earlier predictions of up to 2 inches of snow, the latest forecasts show Atlanta won't get any accumulation. About 220 million people - or 75 percent of the USA population - will endure below freezing temperatures this week.

We saw it against Chelsea in 2014, when Brendan Rodgers' Reds stopped playing their normal game at 1-0 down and panicked amidst an anxious atmosphere, and there's a danger of it happening again.

"So I'd rather see this as a point gained. The first half we had 80 per cent of the ball so only one team suffered and it was us", said the Reds boss.

"For supporters it is a little bit different, for people involved I don't understand". I never celebrated another team dropping points or losing a game.

I think everyone was thinking about the seven because it was possible and it didn't happen.

Klopp was unaware of the social media post but, when told about it, expressed his surprise.

"City will just pass it around and play the same way they always do, so the extra games won't affect their philosophy".

The Liverpool manager confirmed Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez will not be back from injury in time for Monday's trip to West Ham, with the latter unlikely to return before the Champions League tie with Bayern Munich on 19 February.
