Frustration but no moaning from Jürgen Klopp, even after a title setback for Liverpool.

Klopp’s side being held 1-1 by tactically disciplined and defensively robust Tottenham on Saturday handed Manchester City an even greater initiative in the Premier League title race.

The damage would have been greater had Luis Diaz’s deflected strike not canceled out Son Heung-min’s tap-in for the fifth-placed visitors.

“I’m really proud of the performance,” Klopp said. “The mentality we showed.”

It’s the mentality that might yet propel the Champions League and FA Cup finalists, who have already collected the League Cup, to a treble.

A quadruple of trophies could soon become out of reach.

Liverpool is back in first place in the league but City can pull three points clear with three games remaining by beating Newcastle on Sunday.

“I would love to sit here and say, ‘Yes, City will drop points,’” Klopp said. “The only problem is I can’t see it.”
