Liverpool's title race is run but we are improving, insists Jürgen Klopp

The 3-3 draw away to Arsenal brought the first half of term to a close, with Jurgen Klopp's side having played 19 games in the Premier League.

The Reds surged 2-0 ahead through goals from Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah and would have been out of sight had they been more clinical when presented with some woeful home defending.

Liverpool and Arsenal's frailties are not new. Klopp has joined Antonio Conte, Mauricio Pochettino and José Mourinho in accepting his team will not be crowned 2017-18 champions but remains wholeheartedly optimistic about their long-term prospects.

"We had a nightmare first half and could have been punished more", he said. That will be a fantastic situation.

They were beaten 3-2 at home by Swansea in January last season, in one of the most damaging results of a hard winter for Klopp's side.

"Third one, misjudgement - too deep, no offside, we let them go in the box and make it too easy". "A lot of players in this squad are young enough to learn and that is what they will do, 100%".

But Liverpool suffered a costly meltdown as Arsenal scored three times in five minutes in the second half through Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil. I am excited. I want to give my all and help the team to get back in the top four'.

Jordan Henderson will miss Liverpool's game with Swansea City on Tuesday because of a suspected hamstring injury.

"We played 94 minutes [with added time] and the five minutes were very decisive tonight and hard to explain, but good to learn from because we need to react differently". "The draw feels really not good, but that's good because we should have won like in all the other draws we have".
