The Anfield manager took his side to Old Trafford yesterday afternoon hoping to get a big result to continue their push for the Premier League title.
It’s already a big fixture given the rivalry between the teams and the history of the game, but it took on extra significance because both sides still have hopes of winning the title.
But Klopp doesn’t agree with that, describing the ‘decisive’ pre-match billing as “bulls**t” during his post-match press conference.
After Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw by United, Klopp took to the radio to say:

Klopp obviously doesn’t believe the 1-1 draw has any real impact on what will happen at the end of the season.
Liverpool sit third in the table, seven points off league leaders Chelsea, but five in front of Manchester United back in sixth.
The German was very passionate throughout the game at Old Trafford as he tried to lead his side to an important win. At one point towards the end of the game he even argued with Jose Mourinho over Ander Herrera’s cynical pull on Roberto Firmino.
What’s your view – was it a decisive game for Liverpool and United?
