Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp accepts FA charge over Merseyside derby celebration

Share

Marco Silva believes Jurgen Klopp should not have been punished for his celebrations after Liverpool's derby victor against his Everton team on Sunday.

Reds boss Klopp responded by charging onto the field to celebrate with goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

The FA's disciplinary department will wait until receiving the match report from referee Chris Kavanagh and the other officials before deciding whether to investigate the incident.

"I think we've shown with PSG at home and then Chelsea away and now Everton - three times this season - that something that we're doing is staying in games and then producing in the last minutes".

Liverpool left it late against Everton at the weekend as it looked like they were about to drop two vital points before Jordan Pickford's horror show deep in to stoppage time gifted Divock Origi a 96th minute victor at Anfield.

Liverpool thought they had won the game three minutes earlier when van Dijk headed on a corner and Origi turned a hard chance onto the Everton bar, with home supporters appealing for a penalty after Daniel Sturridge's follow-up shot appeared to strike Gylfi Sigurdsson on the arm. I don't know if we had scored in that moment what would be my reaction.

"I didn't want to do it and I can say it won't happen again", Klopp told a news conference on Tuesday. "He didn't apologise to me", he said. I didn't want to run to Ali (goalkeeper Alisson), I couldn't stop obviously. I don't think he expected anything like that either. "I told him how much I respect his work because it's incredible what he did with that team".

"It was a lucky day for him this afternoon but that is football".

"Maybe when I see that moment I can speak more about that situation".

"But I never had a problem to pay a fine". It was really long ago that it happened last time. He gave us many, many things in the past, and I'm sure in the future he'll keep giving us good things as well.

Liverpool's win leaves them in second place in the Premier League, just two points behind Pep Guardiola's City after 14 matches. "Thankfully, because it is better for the heart if football games are decided earlier".
