Jurgen Klopp takes a dig at United after Liverpool lost a game at Southampton

Jurgen Klopp’s men lost 1-0 to a tough Southampton team. Liverpool coach takes a dig at Man United penalty record.

It’s been a topsy turvy kind of a season in the Premier League. Were almost at the mid-way point in the Premier League and none of the clubs have been able to separate themselves from the pack. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool is having a very inconsistent season.

It has been difficult for Liverpool. They have faced an injury-prone season as many of their key players are out. Despite that in the past few weeks, the club gained momentum and rallied to the top of the Premier League.

Although Liverpool has now scored only 1 goal in their last 3 games which is very uncharacteristic of the Champions. They are now at the top with Manchester United at 2nd who are level on points but have a game in hand.

Should United win or draw their next fixture they will go to the top of the Premier League. Liverpool faced a frustrating 1-0 defeat at the hand of Southampton who are in very good form this season and sits at the 6th position on the table.

Danny Ings gave an early lead to the Saints, however, that was not the reason why Klopp was fuming. There were some decisions that went Southampton’s way which were the main reason behind’s Jurgen’s frustration.

There were a handball incident and a penalty appeal both of which were denied by the referee and the VAR, responding to which Klopp took a sly dig at the club leading the chase.

Klopp’s take’s a sly dig at Manchester United’s penalty record

After Liverpool’s defeat, Jurgen Klopp said in his post-game interview that if it was any other team, they would have gotten the penalty. By any other team, Klopp was indirectly referring to Manchester United.

It is no secret that Manchester United have had their luck in penalties this season. There have been many controversial decisions that have gone their way.

Pretty strong words coming from the Liverpool manager especially considering the fact that Liverpool has just one penalty less than Manchester United in this season. It would be wise to look at your own self before pointing fingers.

It could also be a plain case of frustration for the manager as his team might slip down to the second spot. Manchester United have certainly turned around their season after a disappointing exit from the Champions League.

Although will the club be able to sustain its performance is the question lying in everyone’s heads. However, to Manchester United’s credit, they have been playing really well in the Premier League. The arrival of Bruno Fernandes has certainly had a great impact.

United will face Manchester City later today which will be a very important game for the Reds as Ole Gunner Solskjaer will be desperately looking to get his hand on some silverware. If they win United will have a chance at redemption against Tottenham who thrashed them 6-1 in their Premier League encounter.
