Gary Cahill: Chelsea-Liverpool Draw Good for Manchester City

Immediately before that, though, Klopp was trying to make a substitution, but was not allowed. "I wanted to sort it immediately", he told the club's official website.

However, a second-half display strewn with defensive errors saw Sevilla peg them back, with Guido Pizarro firing home a 93rd-minute equaliser. "He is fantastic and did really well and that is why we left him on the pitch", he added. This kind of game will not be a game you win three or four-nil, that is clear.

"It got Chelsea a point and Liverpool a point but I don't think it's going to be enough for Chelsea in their quest to chase Manchester City".

"Chelsea fought hard and deserved the point but it doesn't feel flawless at the moment".

Klopp surprisingly left Mane out of the starting line-up for the clash against the Premier League champions, with the Senegal global only being introduced off the bench in place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain towards the closing stages at Anfield.

Speaking on the Weekend Sports Breakfast, the former Blues and England star said: "This is not just me with my Chelsea hat on, but Chelsea would be better prepared as a squad than anyone to take Man City close". In the first half, we were very solid and always risky when we had the ball.

"We found the strength and I think we deserved the draw. Then we would have had three points more and we would have been even with Chelsea and that would have been nice".

"There will be a moment tonight when I think the result is OK - but not now".

However, the north London side will regard the 1-1 stalemate with the strugglers at Wembley as two points dropped.
