"The wrong team wanted me - Manchester United!". "I accept a lot was good defensive play - stopping them - but we had good spells and to finish as well as we did speaks volumes".

Jurgen Klopp had hoped to eliminate the errors which blighted previous number one Loris Karius past year when Liverpool paid a then world-record fee for a goalkeeper to sign Alisson from Roma last month.

Mane also believes that Liverpool are capable of reaching the Champions League final for a second successive year.

But when the Spaniard ended up joining, United ended up pushing for Mane instead.

"Still we kept in touch all the time and the first time he talked to me about Liverpool I said "welcome, this is a family, not a club - you will enjoy it".

According to Spanish publication AS however, via Sport Witness, Jurgen Klopp saw Atletico Madrid stopper Jan Oblak as his preferred choice originally.

The Italian born tactician replaced Antonio Conte as the head coach of the club and has been impressive in his side's start to the 2018-19 EPL campaign.

The Brazil worldwide is only the third Liverpool goalkeeper in 51 years to keep clean sheets in the first three league matches of a season after Bruce Grobbelaar, Jose Reina and Simon Mignolet, who achieved the feat twice.

The small teams with all the wisdom and knowledge that is out there, it's very hard not to organise a team, have a good solid plan.

"It's a very fast game with quick attack with lots of quality - it was tough today but that's why the disappointment is quite big because we feel like we were very close to getting something".

"It's very important that it's a flat throw-in, because if it's too high it's easy to defend".

"At 1-0 down at half-time most people expected Liverpool to push on but we got stronger as the game went on".

'We have played [big games] already and we know how.
