Liverpool are still without a win this season as they lost 2-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday evening. The Merseyside Reds failed to win their first two games this season with both matches ending in a draw.
Goals from England internationals Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford gave Manchester United the deserved win over Jurgen Klopp’s men as Mohamed Salah’s goal in the second half was not enough.
After the game, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revealed why his team lost to Erik ten Hag’s men at Old Trafford.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BBC Sport: “The start of the game was exactly what everyone excepted, what United fans expected, they were after us. They started slightly more aggressive than us, they could more 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.
“I don’t have a lot of arguments, we lost the game. On another day, with more conviction about what we are doing we can turn it around. That is how it is.”
