Jurgen Klopp Is Unbeaten At Anfield In Europe As Liverpool Manager

It's now 17 games unbeaten for Jurgen Klopp at Anfield in Europe as Liverpool manager.

That includes results against Manchester City, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund, Napoli, and, of course, Bayern Munich who they drew with last night in the Champions League round of 16 first-leg.

Since taking charge of Liverpool in 2015, Klopp has yet to lose a European game at home across both the Europa League and Champions League.

An impressive feat for Klopp who guided his side to last season's Champions League final.

Meanwhile, Liverpool fired blank against the German team but also kept a vital clean sheet thus not conceding an away goal.

And speaking after the game, he's content with the outcome of the match.

"I'm not over the moon but I'm completely OK with the game," said Klopp in his post-match thoughts.

"We made life more difficult with the last pass today - about 10 or 12 times a promising situation [fizzled out]. We can play better. We should play better.

"In the first half we had the bigger chances. I can't remember any chances for either side in the second half. It wasn't a Champions League night from that point of view."

Liverpool were without the injured Dejan Lovren and the suspended Virgil van Dijk, with Fabinho and Joel Matip forming a makeshift center-back pairing.

"It was a clean sheet without the big man [Van Dijk]. A lot of people wouldn't have expected that," Klopp added.

"The defending was good. A lot of things were really good.

"The positive is the result is OK, the best draw we can get. Yes, we can play better; we should play better.

"The tie is not over - we said that. We had to create the basis tonight that we can use in the second leg."

The return fixture goes down in three weeks time.
