Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is known for his passionate displays on the sidelines, however his enthusiasm led to a spat with the Chelsea bench this afternoon.

The German manager, seeking his first league win as Liverpool boss, was patrolling the touchline in the second half of the game at Stamford Bridge, which is currently tied at 1-1.

Klopp's natural exuberance appeared to rub Chelsea coach Jose Morais, sitting amongst fans, up the wrong way however and the pair exchanged words.

It was also reported that the Liverpool boss, who watched Philippe Coutinho equalise with a superb curling effort after Ramires had given Chelsea the lead, had an exchange with a Blues' fan, telling him to 'take a timeout', although it would appear that was also aimed at Morais.

A clip of the exchange can be seen below.

Klopp is no stranger to touchline controversy and his exchange with a fourth official in the Champions League has now become the stuff of legend.

Liverpool could move up to seventh in the Premier League if they win today, level on points with Tottenham who take on Aston Villa.
