Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp salutes the fans after a Premier League 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield, Liverpool, Britain, on May 7, 2022.

Jurgen Klopp hinted that Liverpool's chances of taking the quadruple may have vanished after dropping points in Saturday's Premier League clash with Tottenham.

Luis Diaz's fine effort from distance salvaged a 1-1 draw for the hosts at Anfield after Son Heung-min had fired Spurs into the lead earlier in the second half, goal.com reported.

"A difficult game, but I'm really happy with the performance of my boys against a top team that might play Champions League next season," Klopp told BBC Match of the Day after the final whistle.

"[Spurs] have world class strikers on the pitch set-up for counter-attacking. It makes life not easy, 1-0 down is difficult and we kept calm and forced the equaliser.

Our mentality was incredible and the counter-pressing was a different level. But we faced an opponent set-up for counter-attacks with a full week to prepare, we accept that and it is a draw. We will keep going. We weren't tired. You are not as precise at the end of the game.

"[The players] are down in the dressing room, it was intense. When you play top teams, you need luck in the decisive moments.

"I'm not happy, but not as sad as the players are right now and it is my job to explain why something happens like this. Harry Kane and Son Heung-min were completely rested, that is why it is so hard. That is why the quadruple is so unlikely; there is a reason nobody has done it in this country. We will keep going," added the German.

First and foremost we should stop behaving like it is a funeral. In my life much worse things happen. The only chance we have is if something goes our way. Imagine City lose, I cant see it, but imagine if they do and we lose it [the title] because we dont believe any more. That would be crazy.”

Tottenhams effective counter-attacking style did not impress Klopp, however. The Liverpool manager said: I dont like this kind of football but that is my problem.”
