Matt Ritchie acknowledged that the mood around Newcastle United has been low, but is hopeful his late victor against Manchester City can spur Rafael Benitez's side on for the rest of the Premier League campaign.
"It was not our best night. If that is not a real goalscoring situation, I don't know what is". We want to win a game and we don't, so we don't feel brilliant.
"A lot of teams are playing many reasons, teams to stay in the Premier League, others to go to the Europa League, for the Champions League".
The 32-year-old forward has scored seven of the Foxes' last 10 goals against the Reds and all his goals have come in just eight appearances.
"We are not at the top and that can sometimes happen, I can understand the players so congratulations to Newcastle".
City's defeat against Leicester was their third loss this season in the EPL in four games and it left them four points behind current leaders Liverpool.
But time went on and City couldn't find a crucial second.
Then, on the 66th minute, Jose Salomon Rondon equalized for the Magpies.
Guardiola added: "We didn't make a good performance".
"I don't see it like this, that we dropped points", Klopp said. "We lost second balls, we were not aggressive enough, that's why we could not win".
AYMERIC Laporte has urged Manchester City to take out their frustration on Arsenal in a bid to keep their Premier League title challenge alive after a shock defeat at Newcastle. The game was not good. Pep Guardiola will no doubt point to this result as an example of Liverpool's frailties, especially as we enter the title run in. Very often I stand here, in the last couple of weeks when we've got a penalty and everyone is asking 'was it really a penalty?' and stuff like that. Premier League, until the end, Carabao Cup final back-to-back - chapeau, hats off to my players.
However, former United star Solskjaer, serving as interim boss until the end of the season after temporarily leaving Norway's Molde, has had the midas touch.
