There were several occasions during the game against Manchester United that both Virgil van Dijk and James Milner were seen arguing with each other and Jurgen Klopp was asked for his opinion on their altercation.
Speaking with the media after the game at Old Trafford, the 55-year-old said: “I didn’t even see it… I was a football player my whole life and I don’t have any kind of issues [with the arguing].
“Nobody is happy after you lose a game and that is completely normal but this is not an explanation or an excuse”.
It’s only human to be that frustrated after a bitterly disappointing result and performance, with both men showing their passion for wanting results to turn round.

We’re only three games into this campaign and there is more than enough time for us to get back into a race for the silverware we have set our sights set on.
For now, it’s going to take a lot of hard work on the training ground, as well as some good luck with our injury concerns.
