Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says referee Paul Tierney appears to have something “against” his team after a remarkable ending to their 4-3 win over Tottenham.

Diogo Jota scored an injury-time winner for the Reds just 99 seconds after Richarlison made it 3-3 – with Liverpool having led 3-0 inside 15 minutes.

Klopp was furious with Spurs being awarded a free-kick which led to their equaliser and ran to scream at the fourth official after the winner, but hurt his hamstring in front of the Tottenham bench.

He was shown a yellow card by the referee after his celebration.

“We have our history with Tierney, I really don’t know what he has against us,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “He has said there [are] no problems but that cannot be true.

“How he looks at me, I don’t understand it. In England nobody has to clarify these situations, it’s really tricky and hard to understand.

“What he said to me when he gave me the yellow card is not OK.”

On his injury, Klopp told BBC Sport: “I’m not sure if it’s the hamstring, it could be the adductor but I got punished.

“I turned around for the celebration because the fourth official got nothing wrong the whole time.

“I didn’t say anything bad, I gave a look which is bad enough. The hamstring or whatever the muscle [is] gave up in that moment. That’s fair.”

The injury did not stop Klopp going to the Kop afterwards to celebrate in front of Liverpool’s fans as the Reds overtook Spurs to go fifth in the table.More to follow.
