A bad-tempered 2-2 draw at Anfield was overshadowed by an injury to central defender Lovren, who was carried off on a stretcher after being caught by Albion midfielder Craig Gardner. Both Klopp and Pulis said afterwards that Gardner got the ball, with the injury caused by the midfielder's follow through.
There were heated exchanges between the two managers on the touchline after that, with Pulis disappearing down the tunnel at full-time without shaking the hand of Klopp, who then became embroiled in an argument with Albion assistant head coach David Kemp.
Klopp said: "I wanted to go to my team. Do with this what you want. We had some words during the game. Sometimes it takes more than a few seconds to cool down. If you want to make a big story of this, please. Usually I shake hands. I did not today, because it was not a friendly game. But I wish him all the best.
