And the German tactician felt his side's performance was not 'brilliant', singling out two of his attackers' displays.
“Sometimes Bobby [Firmino] ran too long with the ball, or Sadio [Mane] ran too long," Klopp told BT Sport.
“When that happens, you cannot produce. The midfielders or the full-backs tried to go forward, but we lost the ball and had to go back in the other direction.
“It was intense, but we caused the intensity of the game ourselves.
“It was an interesting looking group before we started and it's still interesting now.
“We want to play better than we did tonight, but even if we don't play brilliantly, we want a result. Tonight we weren't as good as we could be.”
Up next for Liverpool is a Premier League clash against Manchester City at the weekend as they hope to get back to winning ways.
