Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: No regrets over derby comments

Mohamed Salah had given the hosts a deserved lead before the break but the biggest talking point of the game came when Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin hit the deck under contact from Reds defender Dejan Lovren.

"With all the challenges in this game, and only one team playing, to give such a penalty away is unbelievable, when you see the pictures".

Toffees boss Sam Allardyce has also weighed in on the Merseyside controversy after the shameful reaction of Jurgen Klopp in the draw they pulled out versus Everton.

"I told the referee I didn't understand this, I didn't use one swearing word, but I can't believe in a game like this, with one team trying for 95 minutes, everything to win and the other team are not even in our box, I don't know if they had a shot aside from the penalty".

"I'd be saying: "What [are] you doing?"

"I was just as delighted with the character that we showed because physically, for the whole team, it was a hard game". "I only want to talk to people with some understanding of football".

Home manager Jurgen Klopp left some of his star players out of the starting line-up, with Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum, Emre Can and Phillipe Coutinho on the bench, preferring to play Dominic Solanke, James Milner, and Andrew Robertson. The referee has to be courageous to give a decision like that. "I don't think it was a penalty".

Everton, meanwhile, had seen an immediate improvement in their performances following the appointment of Sam Allardyce at the helm last week, with the Toffees having notched 9 goals and conceded none in their last 3 outings versus West Ham, Huddersfield and Apollon Limassol.

Klopp too lost his rag in an incredible post-match interview, blaming the referee then lashing out at the journalist.
