Watch highlights of Liverpool 1-1 Leicester

Jurgen Klopp's side spurned the chance to move seven points clear of Manchester City when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester at home on Wednesday night.

And yet, it was Rafa Benitez' Magpies who rode out victors in the latest Premier League mid-week fixtures, a 2-1 scoreline condemning City to their fourth defeat in 10 league games and leaving Manchester quaking at the prospect of Liverpool steaming ahead in the title race.

Jürgen Klopp has responded to Kyle Walker trolling Liverpool on Twitter by insisting it is unacceptable to mock fellow professionals for dropping points.

"When people say we are the flawless team and we are invincible, my answer is always the same; every game we must improve. and sometimes there are ups and down".

A top four spot is within United's grasp and I'd be surprised to see them drop points two games in a row.

"Nobody told them to do it like that and just clear their box, I can promise that". 'That's not how I understand sport'. "But how can I criticise if I don't understand it?"

Liverpool were accused of breaching the spirit of the game when TV cameras picked up ground staff clearing snow from the penalty area at the Kop end at half time, the end Liverpool were attacking after the break.

However, Klopp is happy with the five-point advantage they now have and spelled out just how hard they know life will be in the final three months of the season. Then Bournemouth and we go again. That is what we will do, not counting points and hoping for gaps between us and other teams.

"Obviously you get that feeling from the crowd and I think it's not really necessary at the moment", said the Holland captain. It's no coincidence that in the first half we scored a goal in a box that was full of snow. In Germany you would give shovels to everybody, even people in the stands would come on the pitch and help, and you would have 15 minutes to clear. That's how it is, we can not change it. "I can not control it. We just focused on our game and it was a very tough game".

"We are employed by Liverpool, a club with big dreams", he added.
