Liverpool defeated Everton 1-0 at the weekend with Divock Origi taking advantage of a Jordan Pickford mistake to nod home the winner.

The result sees Liverpool remain on the coattails of Manchester City with the Reds just two points behind City as well as remaining unbeaten.

The nature of the winning goal caused a huge celebration in the Liverpool dugout with Jurgen Klopp displaying the passion he has become famous for.

The Liverpool boss ran onto the pitch to hug Reds goalkeeper Alisson in what was clearly an impulsive burst of energy from the German.

Unfortunately for Klopp his actions had consequences and the Football Association proceeded to charge the former Borussia Dortmund manager with misconduct.

Klopp did aim an apology at Everton boss Marco Silva straight after the game admiting that no disrespect was intended.

"I have to apologise because I didn't want to be disrespectful - but I couldn't stop myself.

"If I could describe how I felt when the goal went in, then I would have control over it. We don't want to look for excuses but that's how it is.

"The plan was not to run. When I chose to stop, I was close to Alisson. He was surprised."

Fans were predominantly in the corner of the Liverpool manager with the German's passion seemingly winning over the public. An act that is a rarity in the modern game.

It's not just fans that think that the FA charge is harsh. Ex- Manchester United, Real Madrid and England player - and not to mention, global icon - David Beckham voiced his displeasure at Klopp's passion for the game being misinterpreted.

Beckham commented on Sky Sports' Instagram post announcing the charge.
