Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp in a post-match statement has opened up on why his side lost to Man Utd on Monday night.

The Reds were defeated by two goals down at Old Trafford, thanks to goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford.

While Mohamed Salah scored a goal for Liverpool, it was not enough to save them from losing all three points.

Klopp told BBC Sport: “The start of the game was exactly what everyone expected, what United fans expected, they were after us. They started slightly more aggressive than us, they could play the game they wanted than we could play the game we wanted.

“They scored the goal, which we had to defend differently, but that is how it is with goals. The second part of the first half we were there and caused them problems. We had massive chances.

“At half time, we showed the boys a couple of situations we did really well and wanted to do that again but then we conceded the second goal. Then we have to chase the game properly and then you can get in a bit of a rush.

“We scored a goal and we deserved in that period and then you have to force it, we tried, have to admit in the end not good enough and that is why we lost.”
