Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp took issue with questions from the media as he defended the new champions’ approach to their 4-0 defeat by Manchester City.
“If you want to lead the story in the direction that we were not focused on that game, then do it,” an irritated Klopp told Sky Sports.
“I saw a brilliant attitude. I saw fight. We didn’t behave like somebody who became champions a week ago.”
The defeat was only Liverpool’s second of the Premier League season.
City’s defeat by Chelsea in their previous league game on 25 June had handed Liverpool an unassailable lead at the top of the table and ensured their first top-flight title in 30 years.
Images and video of the Liverpool players partying together, while in joint isolation at a team hotel, were posted on social media.
But Klopp insisted his side’s defeat was always possible against a team with the quality of Manchester City, Premier League champions in the previous two seasons.
