Liverpool supporters, hello and welcome to the first round-up of the week.

There’s plenty to sink your teeth into after this weekend’s action - luckily for you, we have the most important bits amassed both above and below.

Klopp backs Mignolet

Most Liverpool fans expressed frustration towards Simon Mignolet after his weekend blunder against West Brom, but Jurgen Klopp is having none of it.

The German coach has revealed - as per The Telegraph - he told the Belgium international that the mistake wasn’t his fault - in fact, Klopp said he is prepared to blame himself as he wants a goalkeeper who tries to claim the ball.

"I said to Mignolet at half time, if someone says its his fault, tell them it’s not true, it’s mine," Klopp said.

"I want a GK who tries to get the ball."

We’re assuming a goalkeeper who tries to claim the ball and actually gets it would be preferred, but what do we know?

Here's the mistake in question:

Liverpool's salute

Elsewhere, Klopp was also in the eye of the fans and media after organising a team salute following the 2-2 draw at Anfield.

The gesture sparked bemusement online, after all, it was only a 2-2 draw, but Reds supporters certainly seemed to appreciate it and that’s what counts.

Klopp on Pulis snub

Lastly, sticking with the aftermath of the West Brom match, Klopp has revealed just why he didn’t shake hands with Tony Pulis in the wake of the draw.

The 48-year-old described the affair as not being a ‘friendly game’ and confirmed that he and Pulis had exchanged words during the match.

Lord only knows what was discussed on the touchline.

Pulis can count himself lucky, in any case:
