Liverpool coachJurgen Klopp is not concerned about his team's failure to win against Manchester UnitedatOld Trafford Stadium.
In the 27th round of the Premier League, both teams had to be satisfied with one point after playing a goalless draw on Sunday.
But Klopp dismissed the notion that Liverpool could not take advantage of Man United's appearance, that was limping, because many players were injured. Klopp realized Liverpool played poorly, but fetching point from Man United, is a good result.
"We should have played better with speed. Man United were highly favoured before the game but we won one point," Klopp said to BBC Sport.
"This is a strange game. We started well but then lost momentum. Everyone thought something was wrong with Liverpool because they failed to win, but we are just ordinary people," Klopp added.
An additional point makes Liverpool return to the top of the standings. Liverpool, who collected 66 points, are now one point ahead of defending champions Manchester City in second place.
Looking at the standings, Klopp was happy to have a wide distance with Man United which showed an increase in performance in fifth place.
"Man United are an extraordinary team. But they remain below us by 14 points. That's good news that hasn't changed until now," said the German coach.
"Right now, we saw a lot of draws in the last few games. But we are still in the position that should be (top of the table)," Klopp added.
On Firmino's injury, the German said, "First he said he could carry on, then that he couldn't. I don't know exactly the extent of the problem."
Liverpool will host Watford at Anfield Stadium next, while Man United will travel to Crystal Palace headquarters, Sellhust Park Stadium. The two matches of the 28th round of Premier League will take place on Wednesday.
