Jurgen Klopp was more livid than we’ve ever seen him before following Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Everton on Sunday.

The Reds’ boss was fuming with referee Craig Pawson’s decision to award a penalty following a Dejan Lovren push on Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Wayne Rooney scored the spot-kick, cancelling out Mohamed Salah’s opener and snatching a precious point for the Toffees at the home of their local rivals.

"Calvert-Lewin is smart and takes a step but even then it's nothing," Klopp said in an ill-tempered post-match interview with Sky Sports. "The referees don't understand that the player is doing that.

"I cannot believe in a game like this when only one team is trying to win it and the other team were never in our box, and then you give it, you open the door for them like this.”
