Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice as newly-promoted Fulham held Liverpool to a 2-2 draw in their first game back in the Premier League.
After the match, Klopp praised Fulham's performance and admitted his side were well below par.
"Then we wanted to fight back, but then you don't find it easy. The pitch was dry.. we played really in their cards."— NBC Sports Soccer (@NBCSportsSoccer) August 6, 2022

But he was also mocked for claiming that the pitch was too dry during the match.
"The best thing about the game is the result," Klopp told BT Sport after full-time.
"A really bad game. How can that happen? The attitude was not right in the beginning.
"We tried to react after 15 minutes. The pitch was dry, stuff like this. Really difficult."
Klopp has developed a reputation for finding excuses for his Liverpool side after poor results.
The German was mocked by rival fans on social media after his latest comments and Fulham have now twisted the knife.
The west London club posted a picture to Twitter of several sprinklers watering the pitch at their home stadium, alongside the caption: "The Craven Cottage turf looking absolutely lush yesterday", followed by the water emoji.
Fulham's cheeky tweet has gone down a hit with supporters on social media.
"Hahahahaa yessss it wasn’t too dry was it lads," wrote one fan on Twitter.

Liverpool, meanwhile, will look to bounce back when they host Crystal Palace next Monday.
