Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has slammed match officials for awarding Tottenham a controversial penalty in the 95th minute. liverpool

Three points looked certain for the Reds, after in-form forward Mohammed Salah scored a late 91st minute goal.

The provocative minutes that followed will be cause for debate long into the week. Spurs forward Eric Lamela went down after a challenge in the box from Virgil van Dijk. Referee Jon Moss looked hesitant to make a call, as the assistant made his mind up for him.

Harry Kane converted the penalty making it 2-2 and the rest is history. Although not for Jurgen Klopp.

The fiery manager gave the linesman a cynical clap after the decision and he didn’t stop there. The German vented his frustration to cameras post match.

“It was clear two sides high quality both wanted to win desperately, but the result was massively influenced by linesman decisions,” Klopp told Sky TV.

“We have to take it, that’s how it is.”
