The 1-1 draw against Premier League leaders Chelsea on Tuesday may not have carried the significance of the victory over Manchester City on New Year's Eve but there are lessons to be learned.

Mourinho claimed that he was warned to sit down or he would be sent off during United's 0-0 stalemate against Hull and explained to reporters that "You know clearly that I am different".

"Everyone is looking for guarantees and I cannot guarantee but it makes sense to say "Don't forget there are still a few games to go which we can maybe win", Klopp said.

'I think it depends on the fourth official, ' he said.

Steve Bower: "Sometimes the importance of a match is overhyped, but for Liverpool you can't play anything down for this one". "I was the wrong person to say it".

"We had it in the last game already", he said.

However, Can thinks Liverpool have it in them to breach deep-lying defences such as they were comfortably doing in the earlier parts of the season.

Simon Mignolet saved the subsequent spot-kick and Klopp shouted "No-one can beat us" at the official who responded, according to the German, by saying "No problem I like your passion". I said I was a bit excited.

It was one of those pressure driven display that created the chance that was spurned by Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino in the game to the amazement of his manager Jürgen Klopp, who took a dab after the forward's miss in Chelsea's box. He is not the nicest guy on the pitch but I saw no real big incident and until someone tells me something.

But Liverpool, trailing 10 points behind Chelsea, have won just one of their nine fixtures in 2017 and Klopp believes second-bottom Hull will offer tough opposition despite their lowly position.

"It is not easy to play against Liverpool in this moment after three defeats".

Liverpool never relented as they put up a spirited performance to get back on level terms.

"Even Swansea was not good but it was not that we had no chances".

"It was a valuable point, but we know that we need more than that to achieve our goal".
