Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has apologized for shouting at a fourth official during his team's draw with Premier League leader Chelsea on Tuesday night.

"We need players, our players plus a few new faces".

"But it is not that he can decide games by himself or we should expect this". We have to do everything we can do to change things in the future.

"If I had to play against Diego Costa we could never be friends". It's still football. I have no problem with emotion. What impressed me most about Matip was his passing prowess with an 80-yard pass to Phillipe Coutinho delighting the home crowd. But it's in this moment (I think), 'What do you want?'

With the result, Chelsea remains in first place with 56 points while Liverpool is in fourth with 46 points.

"That was world class from David Luiz we have to say that", Klopp added.

However, after Mignolet came to Liverpool's rescue the Reds boss calmed down sufficiently to make an apology to Neil Swarbrick in the technical area.

"Faith is not something you have today and tomorrow you don't have", Klopp said.

"I think that at the end of the match, we could win", Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said.

"I was absolutely the wrong person to say it".

"I don't know exactly (when he will be available)", said Klopp. But on the other hand the biggest respect, because when you have him in your team it is much more fun. "He is a warrior", said Klopp.

Costa's miss did little to dampen Conte's mood.

However, it's likely there were celebrations among Liverpool fans because it means the forward will soon be on his way back to Merseyside to help the team in its stumbling title challenge in the Premier League. "But it does not make it better".

Referee Mark Clattenburg pointed to the spot but Mignolet dived low to his right to save the Spain striker's spot-kick.

There's even a chance that Mane will play a part in Liverpool's game against Chelsea on Tuesday, but maybe only from the bench. "It is not easy to play in this atmosphere", said Conte, whose side sit nine points clear ahead of Arsenal's visit on Saturday.

"For me, it's very hard to live the game as a tourist", he added. It is a good point, for sure. I thought we did well from the first second we were into the game, we were aggressive.
