Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had a heated argument with BT Sport reporter Des Kelly after his side’s 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.
Clearly still reeling from Pascal Gross’ late equaliser, the German let Kelly know his anger at the decision to give the Reds a lunchtime kick off after playing midweek in the Champions League.
Already in the throes of an injury crisis, the versatile James Milner was forced from the pitch with a hamstring problem in the draw. Although it’s still unclear how the 34-year-old will be out for, he will be a big miss due to his ability to fill in for other players who are currently in the treatment room.
Klopp may have been extra frustrated after seeing his side have two goals ruled out by VAR, and Brighton given a controversial late penalty by the video referee. Gross then scored from the spot to cancel out Diogo Jota’s earlier goal.
Liverpool are still one point clear at the top of the table after the stalemate, but the rest of the division have a game in hand and Klopp appeared to be feeling the pressure. He even dragged Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder into the disagreement.
