Jurgen Klopp laughs in reporter's face in very spiky post-match interview

Klopp was visibly furious after Liverpool conceded an equaliser from the penalty spot late on in Sunday's Merseyside derby.

With the snow swirling, Rooney stepped up in the 77th-minute and sent the ball straight down the middle. Then you open the door for them like this.

"Calvert-Lewin makes a step.the hand is like this on the back, you saw it", continued the manager.

"The other team was not even in our box, I don't know if they had a shot on target apart from 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.

"We can stop the interview because I only want to speak to people who have a little bit of an understanding of football", Klopp said.

"He's a top-class player and I wish he was leading the line for us at the weekend - but I'd still settle for Firmino, Mane and Salah", the former England and Liverpool captain said.

Klopp's side are now unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions, and stretched their unbeaten run against Everton in all competitions to a record-equalling 15 games.

Everton next travel to Newcastle United on Wednesday, who are floundering at the moment, while Liverpool host West Bromwich Albion on the same day and will look to put their derby day disappointment behind them against the Baggies, who are near the drop-zone.

Allardyce told BBC Sport: 'They've scored 12 goals in their last two games so the object of the exercise was to frustrate the opposition and I think chances created by Liverpool were minimal.

'It's an extremely fearless decision to give that for us in a derby at Anfield and the referee got it right'. I couldn't blame our lads too much. That shows how we mastered a really good side'.
