Liverpool suffered their first Premier League defeat since December, with goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford putting Manchester United 2-0 up. Mohamed Salah headed in to give the visitors hope but they were unable to equalise down the stretch.

After the defeat, German manager Jurgen Klopp spoke about his emotions from the game: "Emotions? We lost. I think that says it all about the emotions I was expecting. That's about it. Very disappointed with the result," he commented.

Asked by reporters if he was concerned about Liverpool's "attitude", the Reds boss said it's not a question that should be asked because both games, against Fulham and ManU, the difference couldn't have been bigger. Perhaps the surprise was in Erik Ten Hag's changes, which were more attacking and purposeful.

Bad luck

"We were unlucky at a set piece, and I still don't know how the ball didn't go in, but it did. We all know how football games are when you have such an aggressive start, so bright if you like, if we would have scored there but we didn't," said the German coach.

"We showed the boys a couple of situations in the first half where we did exactly what we needed to do, where we played in their formation, where we found Bobby and where Harvey was open and where Hendo and Millie were open in those moments, where we were able to get into the box, where we showed the two full-backs where we wanted to, getting in behind the centre-backs more often and things like that," he added.
