It was telling that Roberto Firmino was watching on from the substitutes' bench as his replacement, Divock Origi, was hooking home a last-gasp victor during Liverpool's derby win against Everton on Sunday afternoon.
Klopp said that Liverpool were focused on beating Everton rather than the title race.
"It as a cruel finish for us but that is football", Silva lamented.
"They did really well, they performed well". Both teams had chances.
"But then a short number of days before against Newcastle [Burnley lost 2-1], I thought it was a good performance and I thought we deserved more than we got". Who has scored most?
The German ran onto the pitch and greeted goalkeeper Alisson with a hug on the halfway line.
Silva said: "He didn't apologise to me". I didn't see it. I know when I did it I was not happy to it, ' he said.
"When you win you are a huge personality when you lose it's a lack of respect".
Let's not dwell on the result. "We have to be ready, 38 times in the league and as much as we can in the other competitions".
I would agree with Marco.
"The goal was lucky of course but our idea was clear: we wanted to win until the last second".
The team deserve a lot of credit. I didn't want to run to Ali (goalkeeper Alisson), I couldn't stop obviously.
There were spells out there today where liverpool looked frankly ordinary. Your post has done it. That is the positive we have to take.
"So it was always in my mind about Div that night (against Everton)". I'm not that quick any more.
Wearing the armband for the first time in a Merseyside derby must have been a special feeling for van Dijk. Instead, they remain just two off Guardiola's side. We are devastated for ourselves and the fans.
"I can understand it". I can't imagine the disappointment of Everton.
That could mean Xherdan Shaqiri playing from the left wing while Mohamed Salah should keep his place in attack but we may see Roberto Firmino given a well-earned breather. "Thankfully, because it is better for the heart if football games are decided earlier".
