Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he is “convinced God is a Man City fan” as the German blamed the wind for their defeat to Everton on Saturday.
The Reds were 1-0 down after just three minutes as Richarlison latched on to a James Rodriguez through ball and slotted the ball home past Alisson, before Sigurdsson wrapped up the victory from the penalty spot.
A frustrated Klopp was grasping at straws after seeing his team lose a fourth consecutive Premier League game, saying “you can’t win against God.”
“I cannot explain really,” Klopp said in a post-match interview, which was reported by The Liverpool Offside. “I think us being dominant in games is becoming a familiar story, but the opponent still scores.”
“We controlled the quality of the opponent well—but the one mistake we make they punish. They could make 10 mistakes, but we didn’t punish.”
“You just cannot play football in this heavy wind,” the German went on to try explain. “I am convinced now that God is a Man City fan and that he will do everything to stop us. You can’t win against God.”
“Most importantly we have to admit that they scored twice, and we didn’t so that makes the result. Around their goals I think we created enough but we didn’t finish the situations off. We weren’t clinical.”

On Henderson’s injury, Klopp said: “It is the groin, adductor region. Nothing from the medical department was positive about it. It doesn’t look good but we have to look at the scan tomorrow.”
