Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp faces FA wrath as outrage with referee taints Tottenham win

Liverpool beat Tottenham 4-3 in an incident-packed Premier League thriller at Anfield on Sunday which has created plenty of fallout for Jurgen Klopp and his players


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reviews the Spurs win

Liverpool made it four wins in a row by beating Tottenham 4-3 in the most dramatic of fashions on Sunday afternoon.

The Reds had been cruising at 3-0 up after 15 minutes through goals from Curtis Jones, Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah, but left the door ajar for Spurs. Harry Kane pulled one back before Son Heung-min grabbed another and Richarlison levelled things up in the 93rd minute.

Diogo Jota then popped up just seconds later to latch onto a mistake by Lucas Moura to snatch a dramatic winner in a match filled with controversy. Referee Paul Tierney was thrust into the spotlight after the final whistle, with both sides unhappy with his officiating.

Here are the latest Liverpool headlines following the match.

Klopp could face FA inquiry

Jurgen Klopp vented his anger at Tierney in an eye-catching post-match interview – and the Reds boss could find himself in hot water.

Klopp said he didn’t “know what this man has with us” and suggested Tierney said something unprofessional when showing him a yellow card for dissent in the second half.

There is a history of grievances between Klopp and Tierney and the FA may well take a dim view of his latest tirade against the official.

Mason furious with Jota escape

Ryan Mason was furious that Diogo Jota was not sent off for this challenge on Oliver Skills 

Klopp was not the only person annoyed with Tierney – Spurs interim manager Ryan Mason was also annoyed with his decision making.

Match-winner Jota was shown a yellow card in the second half after catching Oliver Skipp on the forehead with his boot. Mason believes the Portuguese forward should have been sent off.

“Honestly, it’s probably the clearest red card you will see on the football pitch,” he said. “I need an explanation. It endangered the opponent, Skipp needs stitches and Jota has scored the goal when he shouldn’t be on the pitch.”

Jamie Carragher has paid tribute to Graeme Souness after he announced he was leaving his punditry role with Sky Sports.

Souness has worked for the broadcaster for the past 15 years, becoming a familiar face in the studio.

He has never been shy to voice his opinions, or clash with fellow pundits when things become heated in the studio. That style has brought some memorable moments over the years, but the 69-year-old is also popular with his colleagues.

“Graeme Souness was one of the greatest players this country has ever seen, the same goes for him as a pundit!” Carragher tweeted. “I’ve never seen anyone else have his authority in a studio, you’ll be missed Souey.”
