His team dominated practically non-stop, but a… dubious refereeing decision in the 77th minute, a ‘soft’ – at best – penalty in Everton’s favour, left Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side with just one point.
Our performance was good, but we didn’t score often enough. But I saw only one team playing. I saw only one team playing. But we have to make a little bit more
the German first told Sky Sports, talking about how his team did on the pitch. Then, it was all about the referee, his tolerance to Everton players’ challenges, and of course, the penalty.
I can’t believe this situation with all the challenges. We were completely clean with challenges, we didn’t make any fouls. We had Sigurdsson on Henderson which was a red card, again, like in all derbies that I’m in so far there is always a really nasty one
Klopp said, obviously of the opinion that Everton shouldn’t have finished the game with 11 players on the pitch.
And after all the challenges in this game, when only one team is playing, you give such a penalty? It’s unbelievable. When you see the pictures… Yes. Calvert-Lewin makes it smart, because he takes a step in this direction (steps to his right), but even then it’s nothing. But he gave a penalty, and now one team can celebrate, probably, and we can’t
the Liverpool manager said. As for what he told the referee after the match;
That I don’t understand what he is doing. But I didn’t use one swearing word.
