Jurgen Klopp Gets Tetchy With Sky Sports Reporter After Liverpool's Derby Frustration

Everton have lost just one of their past six Premier League games, after losing six of their previous eight.

Klopp said he felt his side had been the only one playing for the victory and felt the penalty, awarded by referee Craig Pawson was an injustice.

Liverpool looked set for victory in the Merseyside derby yesterday, until Dejan Lovren made a decision to give away a baffling penalty in the 76 minute. 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.

Although Liverpool will be disappointed that they didn't test Everton's Jordan Pickford more than they ought to have, certain groups of fans were curious as to why Jurgen Klopp decided not to start his most fearsome attacking quartet of Salah, Firmino, Coutinho and Mane.

"I told the referee I didn't understand this". Then you open the door for them like this.

"It was an extremely big decision for Craig Pawson and I'm really pleased he's taken the decision after seeing what he's seen and given the penalty".

Klopp took off Salah in the second-half, but soon after the Egyptian's departure, the visitors would equalise and the German tactician was forced to send on Coutinho in a bid to find the victor.

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. We can push them through until one is injured and then people say the squad is not deep enough.

The second-half began with Liverpool in the ascendancy, with Everton struggling to get the ball to their forwards, such was the home side's dominance.
