During the second half, Klopp could be seen scolding Van Dijk from the touchline.

When asked about their tense exchange after the game, Klopp said: ‘I don’t know 100 percent, we have conversations a lot.

So there is never an explanation, now you can’t make a massive story of that because I said before that we don’t defend the media spaces correctly. That’s the problem.

“ When the guy with the ball is not under pressure, you can’t have a last high line, so the last line falls at that moment and suddenly we press and then they have to push up again.

So this kind of thing, we have clear rules, clear times for when we do what. Is not easy.

Now I know [what the exchange was about], was the one [Solly] March was practically the only player in charge of Brighton and Virgil was too far behind.

“At that time it was about that, but yes, a normal chat between coach and player.”
