Jurgen Klopp has revealed he is a little disappointed his men could only get a point at the Etihad.
Aguero’s strike cancelled out Milner’s penalty opener and the Reds were left to rue their missed chances, with the miss from Adam Lallana definitely hurting the most.
Klopp says he would need time to come to terms with the fact the singular point is a good one, as he would have rather gotten all three points.
He told Sky Sports: “If I was to make an assessment then I would say ‘if you took a point at Manchester City then that would be okay’.
“I thought we could have won this game because their goalkeeper made a few outstanding saves.
“But we didn’t close the game and we let them recover a bit, so they came back and with the quality, they have one strike and they scored – they deserved the goal of course – but I thought we could have scored more.
“It is a point and that’s good. Tomorrow I will be happy but in this moment I am a little bit disappointed, not too much but a little bit.”
Klopp refused to get too downbeat by the point, and praised both sides for putting on a pulsating display at the Etihad Stadium.
“We take it. It is fair, we could have lost and we could have won. We had three or four chances, open goals in the first half, in the six-yard box. I don’t know how they defended this.
“But of course they had their moments too so maybe it is okay. I’m not happy in this moment but give me a few hours and I will be happy.
“They deserved the goal, but we could have scored more. Two highly motivated sides, both wanted to win until the last seconds.”
