The Reds pushed City all the way but finished on 92 points, one point behind Pep Guardiola's men who finished with 93.
It was a dramatic conclusion to the campaign as City were 2-0 down to Aston Villa on the final day while Liverpool were ahead against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
City came back to win 3-2 and lifted their fourth Premier League title in five years, which Klopp commended.
The German coach believes they were aided to that title triumph by a number of refereeing decisions however, against his side and for the champions.
He told Sport 1: "I don’t have any problems with anyone from City. They deserved it just as much as we deserved it.
"What comes up in a moment like that: a few things happened over the season when a few things went against us, so I was thinking on the day: Let’s hope it won’t be decisive in the end.
"And then you forget about it again and don’t think about it. There were really blatant refereeing decisions. You keep thinking, what went in our favour?
"Completely without club glasses. We were lucky once not to get a penalty against us. But we were already leading 2-0. Otherwise – nothing."
City defeated Wolves 1-0 late last year thanks to a dubious penalty, with VAR showing the ball to hit Joao Moutinho's armpit.

They were also given a spot kick against Arsenal on New Year's Day, after the Gunners were denied one for a similar challenge earlier in the game.
A 1-0 win over Everton in February was marred by Rodri's handball in the box, which denied Everton a chance to equalise late on.

Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur saw striker Harry Kane escaped a red card for a tackle on Andrew Robertson, something Klopp was furious about at the time.
Klopp continued: "And against us? Clear handball penalties, penalties not given. Clear red cards not given against us, so for the opponent. That comes up at this moment. It’s human to think for a moment. But I don’t carry that around for long.

"No matter how Manchester City get the result, I accepted it – it’s deserved. And the other way round quite the same.
"And I can say: today I would be sitting here and wouldn’t feel one bit different if I had become champion and won the Champions League for a second time."
