  • Klopp aims dig at Gunners legend
  • Arsenal lost 6-0 on Wenger's 1000th game
  • Liverpool & Chelsea played out a goalless draw

WHAT HAPPENED? On the occasion of Wenger's 1000th game as Arsenal manager, his side lost 6-0 to Chelsea. And Klopp cited that example while claiming that he was not too disappointed with the 0-0 draw against the Blues on Saturday.

WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to BT Sport, Klopp said: "Arsene Wenger lost his 1,000th game 6-0, so I'm pretty happy."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Reds are now without a win in their last three Premier League matches following back-to-back defeats against Brentford and Brighton prior to the Chelsea game. They are now 18 points off leaders Arsenal.

IN THREE PHOTOS:

WHAT NEXT FOR LIVERPOOL? Klopp still has some way to go before he equals Wenger's record of managing 1000 games at a single Premier League club - though the German did recently joke that he had enough energy to remain at Anfield for another decade.
