We can not drop points, we need to work hard, keep improving and let's see on that day if we have the chance to do it. I'm sure with every game and every training session we'll be better and better.

Klopp added: "We had the first big chance with Daniel (Sturridge), a very big one".

Aguero sits level in the English top flight goalscoring charts with former Liverpool and Manchester United frontman Michael Owen, who bagged exactly 150 in his playing days.
