Having already fallen five points behind champions Manchester City, Klopp confessed that he was concerned about The Reds’ start to the season after the game.
“I am very disappointed with the result,” the German admitted. “I’m worried about our situation, but that’s the way it is.
“It’s a game where everything was clear what United would do. Were they more aggressive than us in the beginning? Probably.
“It was exactly the game United wanted to play. That’s our fault, you might say.
“But until the last pass or the final decision we played the way we should have played. We had many moments in the box.

“We scored a goal and it was absolutely deserved, but it was a little too late. We could have won the game tonight if we had played a little better.”
Klopp also insisted he was not concerned about the heated argument between James Milner and Virgil van Dijk after Liverpool conceded Sancho’s opener.
“There was an argument on the pitch, but we have no problems in the team,” he insisted.
“Nobody is happy after you lose a game. That’s completely normal. This is not an excuse. Everything is fine in this department.’
