  • ¬†Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp speaking to referee Kevin Friend after the game
    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said the referee’s performance was affected by an assistant referee’s mistake for Sadio Mane’s goal against West Ham.

    Mane’s opener stood despite James Milner being offside in the build-up.

    Michail Antonio equalised for West Ham before the break but Klopp says referee Kevin Friend “did not want to open the gap any more” in the second period.

    “I heard our goal was offside, I’m pretty sure the ref knew that,” Klopp told BBC Sport after the 1-1 draw.
