  • Ranted at officials following challenge on Salah
  • Was sent to the stands

WHAT HAPPENED? A thrilling encounter at Anfield saw City have a goal disallowed before Mohamed Salah broke the deadlock. The Egyptian forward then tangled with Bernardo Silva as the Reds sought to see the game out and was of the opinion that he should have been awarded a free-kick.

WHY WAS KLOPP SHOWN A RED CARD? The Liverpool boss also believed that his side should have been given a free-kick, with the assistant referee closest to the incident given an earful as he made his way back up the touchline. Klopp’s reaction was passionate, but uncalled for and he was subsequently sent to the stands by Anthony Taylor and only emerged again at the final whistle.
