Klopp rages at Anfield decision
Jurgen Klopp was unhappy with the officials for not ruling out Burnley's opener in Liverpool's 4-2 victory at Anfield on Sunday.
Having seen Manchester City go four points clear at the top of the table with a 3-1 home win over Watford on Saturday evening, Liverpool needed an instant response and managed to get it on Merseyside at the expense of the Clarets.
The Reds did go behind just six minutes into the game when Ashley Westwood's corner evaded everybody and ended up in the back of the net, much to the displeasure of German tactician Klopp.
Liverpool did manage to turn things around with a 4-2 victory but Klopp expressed his disappointment at the officials for not disallowing the first goal for what he believed was rough treatment of goalkeeper Alisson.
Speaking to Match of the Day, he said: "Are we allowed to talk about the conditions? We played our game. The first Burnley goal was maybe a little bit of the wind. In most countries it would not be allowed that goal - you cannot treat the goalie like that in the six-yard box."
