The Reds manager was in exuberant mood after his side ended Man City's 23-match unbeaten run, though he did let his emotions get the better of him

Jurgen Klopp allowed his emotions to get the better of him in the aftermath of Liverpool's win over Manchester City after a foul-mouthed post-match interview.

The German was typically animated during Sunday's seven-goal thriller at Anfield, where City's 22-game unbeaten league run this season was ended by the hosts.

In their first game since Philippe Coutinho's departure for Barcelona, Liverpool were indebted to goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Pep Guardiola's men fell 4-1 behind, with Leroy Sane's first-half goal all they had to show for their efforts until a late flurry that saw Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan cut the deficit.

Klopp was enthused by the whole spectacle, but while speaking to NBCSN he got a little too carried away when describing events at Anfield.

"You can have a look at this game in different ways," Klopp said. "You can look at it as a manager and say 'OK, we could have done this or that better.' Or you can have a look at it as a football fan and say 'What the f*** was that?!' It was unbelievable."

As NBCSN commentator Arlo White apologised for Klopp's profanity, the manager interjected: "I thought in America it was OK!"

Klopp later calmed himself to revel in a classic Premier League encounter that he was thrilled to come out on the right side of.

"This was a historical game you will talk about in 20 years because it looks like City will not lose another one this year," he told  BBC Sport .

"People watched this game all over the world and this is why — take your heart, throw it on the pitch and play like this, both teams.

"We played, I don't know which level, caused them problems like hell. I was not scared at the end — not that I didn't think we could concede a fourth. I have known my boys long enough now, it was so intense.

Liverpool celebrate

"If you combine quality with attitude, you see a game like this. I really loved it.

"You will find someone who wants to talk about defending, no clean sheet, but he can blow up my boots."

City's leveller, which came just before the interval, saw Loris Karius beaten at his near post by Sane, but Klopp did not enjoy having that fact pointed out to him.

Asked if the goalkeeper was to blame, the Reds boss told Sky Sports : "Yes, of course it's the corner where he was. You showed it to me. People always find the hair in the soup. Loris knows it.

"The Man City goalkeeper [Ederson] probably caused Salah's goal, but nobody will talk about that."
