Former Manchester United skipper Roy Keane called out Jurgen Klopp for his excuses - and it's fair to say the Liverpool boss has used his fair share.

Speaking prior to his side's loss to Manchester City, Klopp had claimed the league leaders had a "two week break" due to a COVID outbreak that saw their fixture with Everton postponed.

That prompted Keane to comment pre-match. He said: "What we don't want to hear from Liverpool is excuses, City had an extra break. Fixture pile up. There's been plenty of excuses from the manager."

The list of excuses Klopp has used is as long as a piece of strong and his latest was blaming "cold feet" for Alisson's two horrendous errors in Sunday's 4-1 defeat at Anfield.

Speaking to Sky Sports post-match, Klopp said: "It's true that we didn't give him a lot of options, especially the first one but the second one he just miss-hit the ball.

"There's not a real explanation for it, maybe he had cold feet or something.

"I know it sounds funny but it could be but then there's still the opportunity to kick it in the stands.

"But, again, Ali has saved our life plenty of times, no doubt about that, and tonight he made two mistakes. That's how it is."

In the past, he's used the weather on a whole host of occasions - claiming wind, snow and heat has had a negative effect on his side.

There was also the time he said BT Sport ordered a game against West Brom to finish earlier than he wanted.

The following thread from a City fan contains a plethora of articles reporting on Klopp's excuses:

Having now lost three consecutive home games in the league, Liverpool find themselves ten points behind City.

Branded "bad champions" by Keane, Klopp believes Liverpool's focus has now turned to securing Champions League football.

"That is of course our main target, that is clear," Klopp said when asked by Geoff Shreeves of Sky Sports.

"We will try everything. There is enough games to play to secure that - but we have to win games and tonight we didn't."
