Liverpool led twice, with Alexis Mac Allister and Mo Salah cancelling out Scott McTominay's opening goal in the first half but Liverpool could not hold on for penalties when United broke at pace and Amad netted the eventual winner in dramatic style.

Afterwards, Klopp revealed that Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo all suffered issues. Speaking to ITV, he said: "Now the boys go on international duty, we hope they come back healthy. Lucho [Diaz] felt his groin, Darwin hamstring. Cody twisted his ankle. They play again in four or five days, it's crazy. Hopefully we will finish the season in style. I really feel for our people."
