For the first time this season, Liverpool failed to win a Premier League match at Anfield.
After 17 consecutive wins at home, Jurgen Klopp’s side could only draw 1-1 at home to Burnley.
It ended hopes of becoming the first side to win every single home game during a Premier League season.
In truth, the champions did more than enough to win the match.
They had 23 attempts on goal in total and had 71% possession. If it wasn’t for an incredible performance by Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, the Reds would have run out very comfortable winners.
Instead, for the first time since January 2019, Liverpool didn’t leave Anfield with all three points.
It’s no wonder that the players - and Klopp - didn’t take the result too well.
At full-time, Klopp marched onto the pitch to remonstrate with referee David Coote. The reason the German was so annoyed was that he felt his side were denied a blatant penalty when Andy Robertson was fouled by Johann Berg Gudmundsson with a few minutes remaining.
Coote didn’t give the penalty and VAR claimed that Gudmundsson got a slight touch on the ball before taking down Robertson.
But try telling that to Robertson and Klopp at full-time.
A video has emerged of them arguing with the official after the final whistle. We can’t quite hear what Klopp had to say but we could very much hear what the left-back had to say.
Every. F**king. Word.
If you couldn’t quite hear, here’s what Robertson said to Coote.
“How’s that not a penalty is a disgrace. How the f**k is that not a penalty? You didn’t see f**king anything. You didn’t see anything the whole game apart from f**king booking them in the last minute. F**k me. What’s the point in having you in the middle? What’s the point in having you? F**k me. Honestly.”
Do you reckon he agreed with the decision not to award Liverpool a penalty?
There’s another clip of Trent Alexander-Arnold asking Coote about the incident claiming that the contact could be heard echoing around the stadium.
The title is already wrapped up and the Liverpool players are still absolutely fuming they weren’t given a penalty against Burnley.
