tough clash against


in the Premier League ended in a 3-3 draw, and the Reds boss

Jurgen Klopp

has admitted that the home side deserved the point that they got because of their remarkable performance.

"It was a wild ride,"

Klopp told Sky Sports.

"They deserved their three goals for the way they played. We obviously couldn't deal with the long balls today but we should have scored more goals.

"I don't think you can control them much better, we created a lot of clear-cut chances but couldn't deal with them defensively. These things happen. We should have scored more. If we win 3-2 or 4-3 we still have these struggles defensively. Toney and Mbeumo did really well.

"They deserved a point as well because they put up a proper fight. I respect that a lot. In the end there were situations we should do better - and then it could be a completely different game. Their goalie should have number 10 on his shirt with the balls that he played."

Thomas Frank

has also talked about his side’s performance, insisting that he is proud of his players who defeated the Gunners in their first-ever Premier League game, and now they have managed to stop Liverpool.

"I'm crazy proud of the players and the way they kept going,"

said Bees head coach Thomas Frank.

"I can't remember when a team in the Premier League have scored three goals against them, especially when they've been in front.

"I think going forward we were unbelievably good. We can do better, we need to do more for the first two goals, and then we needed some big saves from David [Raya] but they also cleared off the line.

"We could have won it in the end. Coming back twice showed unbelievable character, we constantly wanted to go forward. I wanted us to defend a bit more, we gave more chances away than we have done in the first five games, but you need that big moment if you're going to get points against the big teams."
