Jurgen Klopp was slapped with a fine after his passionate celebrations in the aftermath of Divock Origi’s bizarre Merseyside derby winner.

The bespectacled German charged onto the field to celebrate with goalkeeper Alisson Becker as Anfield erupted around them.

The Reds boss has received plenty of support since, with many feeling the FA’s decision to charge Klopp with misconduct was over the top.

The euphoria of the derby win was dampened a little however, after the Anfield side drew a tricky Wolves side away in the third round of the FA Cup.

Klopp has revealed that he wasn’t too pleased with the draw especially considering the fact that the fixtures are set to be played just three days after their monumental Premier League clash with Manchester City.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Burnley in midweek, Klopp made a request that the FA delay the tie as much as they can.

“I didn’t run through my living room, celebrating the draw to be honest,” Klopp said, making reference to his wild celebrations just days ago.

“I got a message saying it was Wolves away. Then I had a look and saw a lot of draws which looked like ‘oh’. They are not the same difficulty we will face but we will try everything.

“We play that week on Thursday against City so I hope we have the Monday night game or whatever then it’s okay.

“If we play on the Sunday after the City game, going to Wolves, who will probably have played three days earlier, that would be really hard, but we have to see. It’s the FA and the television (companies) who will decide.”

You can hardly blame Klopp for asking.

Klopp was not best pleased with the FA Cup draw

The FA Cup represents a real opportunity for the Reds to end their trophy drought but their titanic battle with City will obviously be prioritised.

Knowing Klopp though, he will be desperate not to lose and may be forced to play his strongest side for the trip to Molineux.

With the City juggernaut gathering pace, the Reds will have no choice but to beat them in their backyard too.

A loss in the FA Cup just days later though, will most certainly sting.
