The Gunners claimed victory over the Reds at Wembley on Saturday, winning a penalty shootout 5-4 after the two sides couldn’t be separated during the 90 minutes.
It means Liverpool are the first side ever to lose the Community Shield on penalties in back-to-back years – but Jurgen Klopp played down the significance of the defeat.
Klopp said: “We were here to win the game, I hope that much was obvious. We didn’t lose the game but we lost the competition. If we scored earlier that would’ve helped but there wasn’t enough time.
