Jurgen Klopp said Mamadou Sakhos absence was not to blame for Liverpool giving up a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Newcastle on Saturday. Sakho was not involved in the squad after the pre-match announcement that he is being investigated by UEFA for a potential anti-doping violation.Instead it was Kolo Toure and Dejan Lovren who played at centre-half as Liverpool saw their winning streak come to an end after being 2-0 up at half-time. Sakho probed over dope test Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho investigated for alleged anti-doping violation Asked by Sky Sports whether Sakhos absence played a part in the result, Liverpool boss Klopp said: Thats not a reason. We have changed a lot in the last few games.Playing like we did in the first half is not easy so we did really well, but at half-time they had nothing to lose and we conceded twice, but we could have scored again.It was an intense game and we did well against a team who are fighting for their lives in the Premier League. Mamadou Sakho (C) was in attendance at Anfield Liverpool looked to be heading for a fifth straight victory after first-half goals from Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana.But Newcastle battled back to grab a point and leave Klopp to acknowledge it was not his sides best day. Matt Le Tissier gives his thoughts on Newcastles comeback to earn a point against Liverpool From 2-0 up it doesnt feel like you have won a point it feels like you have lost two, he said.

YAS MARINA, Marina Bay -- Jenson Button said he was sad to be unable to finish one last race for his fans after an early retirement ended his Abu Dhabi Grand Prix early.Button came to Yas Marina knowing it was his last before a sabbatical from F1, though over the weekend he admitted he was treating it like the final race of his career despite an option to return in 2018. The McLaren drivers evening lasted just 12 laps before a right suspension failure forced him to retire in the pit-lane.After the race, Button was philosophical about his retirement and once again looked ahead to life without F1.I really dont know what the problem was, something failed on the car, he said. Thats something that never happens to us, thats a massive strength of our team, things dont fail, but they did today, of all days. Ive always said you cant change the last, you live in the moment, which is now, and then Ill go and grab a nice cold beer when Im finished with the interviews.I didnt hitt anything with that tyre, it was the right front that broke.dddddddddddd. I havent done anything different from what Ive done for the last 17 years. Its a surprise, but Im glad I was able to figure it out before I hit the brakes going into Turn 11. Anyway, its done, and still massively enjoyed today. For sure the race was short but I enjoyed everything else. Im just sad for my fans and supporters that I wasnt able to finish the race.Button, who is being replaced by Stoffel Vandoorne next year, says the racing and the modern F1 cars are the main things he will miss.What Ill miss is the bit I just did, driving the car, because these cars are amazing pieces of kit. They are also frustrating, at times, but this is the bit that Ill miss. Also the team spirit, that is amazing at McLaren, Ill miss that, but Ill try my best to find something new.
