Towards the end of the game, both Klopp and Mikel Arteta were approached by the referee as their tempers seemed to explode. When asked by Sky Sports' Jeff Schreeves if he would reveal what the official told him, Klopp bluntly replied: "No." When asked why he didn't elaborate, the German A statement was released: "Because I don't think I'm allowed."

On the penalty that led to the defeat, Klopp said:

"We should have sorted it before the penalty. We didn't do that. If it's a penalty, it's very, very soft. Mr England didn't think it was worth sending the referee to the screen, same in the first half with Diogo [Jota] on Gabriel. We can't change that anymore.

Klopp also confirmed a double injury blow on his side: "Two massive injury blows for us. Trent [Alexander-Arnold] and Luis. Luis Diaz - something with the knee, not good."
