Milner misses penalty as Liverpool held 0-0 by Southampton

Milner misses penalty as Liverpool held 0-0 by Southampton

Milner said that Jurgen Klopp now has players preparing specifically for opponents who drop behind the ball, as Southampton did.

Drawing a fourth blank against Saints this season - courtesy of Fraser Forster saving James Milner's second-half penalty - handed the initiative to Manchester United in the quest for Champions League qualification. Yes, we did not win the shoot-out but if this is about not handling pressure I do not know what you think it says about the English teams over the years.

"I understand how you should handle situations like this. I have to live with that", Milner said.

"I don't know. It is how it is". The Saints are safe beyond the relegation zone (and are now in 9th place, which isn't that bad!) Still, it would be nicer if they could get by West Brom for 8th place and secure a better finish.

"With this delay and with the time play of Southampton..."

'I'd be sick, ' he said.

"I was obviously at Newcastle with James".

"It's important you play a long time in one position, to learn it properly".

They are going to need to be more than determined if they are going to finish the job and avoid blowing a 3-1 series lead . After Hainsey kept the puck in the zone along the right boards, Nick Bonino one-timed a pass to Hagelin in the slot.

This season is likely to make it three with Arsenal, on 63, playing Southampton and Stoke away before Liverpool head to east London on Sunday.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss added further knowing disclaimers before his latest assessments of the changeable British weather.

"Today, I know nobody wants to hear it but I'm courageous enough to say it, the pitch was really dry".

Firmino had the first real effort of note after 15 minutes, firing a shot straight at Maya Yoshida and Anfield soon became as stale and as flat as the contest itself.

"It was hard, you could see it". In a possession game you need to have the best you can get if possible. We couldn't have this. It's nobody's fault, it just a description.

Klopp pointed to a less than satisfactory surface at Anfield as a reason Liverpool's attack was not at its sharpest, but says the players are still looking forward to the final home game of 2016-17 against Middlesbrough.

The result edged Liverpool up to third, a point ahead of Manchester City, but Pep Guardiola's side have played a game fewer and Manchester United entered their match at Arsenal on Sunday knowing a ideal return from their remaining top-flight fixtures would see them also finish above Jurgen Klopp's men.

Southampton is looking for some kind of positive news at the end of this season.
