Jurgen Klopp Laughs In Reporter's Face During Furious Post-Match Interview

Referee Craig Pawson pointed to the spot, much to the dismay of the home dug-out, but Allardyce fully supported what the majority of spectators believed was the correct decision.

"Yes. Calvert-Lewin makes a step in this direction and even then there is nothing".

Everton's new boss Sam Allardyce would have felt very happy coming away with a draw especially as it was one of the worst derby day performances from the Toffees' that I have ever witnessed.

The Reds boss was furious with the referee after Liverpool's 1-1 draw in the derby, but Premier League legend Alan Shearer told the Reds boss to "blame yourself" and his players for the result.

The likes of James Milner, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were heavily involved from the off, but struggled to carve out any clear-cut goalscoring opportunities until a moment of brilliance 5 minutes before the interval handed Liverpool the lead that they fully deserved. Then you open the door for them like this.

That is simply not good enough for a Liverpool side that should be a lot further along in their development under Jurgen Klopp than they actually are, with their profligacy at one end and foolishness at the other costing them time and again. "The information I had to give would be the same but now I am completely relaxed but it was five minutes after the game and I was not relaxed", he said. "You are all right", he said before continuing the feisty exchange which is just a tad uncomfortable to watch.

"I have looked at it and he [Lovren] has pushed him, but we have seen ones like that before where it has been hard for the referee".

"Twenty-one days, seven games".

"It is not really to change and the players come back in January who were injured in November but they were not in the same shape as November".

Liverpool are next in action on Wednesday at home to West Bromwich Albion.
