Klopp describes Liverpool's draw with Tottenham as a knock.

Liverpool failed to secure three points over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday as Harry Kane scored in the 63rd minute to cancel out Philippe Countinho's opener, and Jurgen Klopp says its normal results like this occur when rebuilding a team.

He told Liverpoolfc.com after the 1-1 draw at Anfield: “That’s what we knew. On a special day, we are really strong.

“We are the last who have to learn to believe, because the crowd is behind us and everybody enjoys the game. It’s not allowed to take breaks in the game and obviously we had them – the goal we conceded is a good example.

“But it’s not the first time in my life that I have to build up something and it’s always like this. On this way you always get knocks, otherwise it would not be a way, it’s only an explosion. And that’s not football.

“[There were] a lot of good things and a few not-so-good things. A draw is a point more than before; it’s not what we wanted but it’s what we got. We have to carry on.”
