Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp unleashes ‘unbelievable’ ref tirade after Arsenal collapse | Football | Sport

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp felt that referee Anthony Taylor allowed Arsenal to get away with fouls similar to the two that saw Ibrahima Konate sent off against Arsenal. Klopp bemoaned several refereeing decisions after seeing his side lose not only 3-1 against the Gunners but also a grip on the Premier League title race.

An error from Virgil van Dijk and Alisson allowed Gabriel Martinelli to put Arsenal 2-1 ahead midway through the second half. Klopp made changes in an attempt to turn the momentum of the game in his side’s favour.

But that plan had to be torn up after Konate received a second yellow card in the 88th minute. His first booking had been for a tug on Kai Havertz, before the defender blocked the German’s run and saw red.

Klopp said: “A lot of things were against of us today. This referee gave me a red card against Man City for wrestling situation between Bernardo Silva and Mo Salah. Today same situation with Jota but didn’t get a red card.

“It is unbelievable, then the of holding Havertz on Konate for the first yellow card.

“Then Havertz goes down and the referee gives Konate a yellow card. Gabriel does the same to Nunez and no yellow card.”
