Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had a really heated exchange in the game at Anfield, as the Reds ran 5-3 winners on the night.

It started after Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic cleanly won the ball off Sadio Mane, but the referee gave a foul in favour of Liverpool, much to Lampard’s annoyance.

Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold would eventually convert the free-kick, but it was after an argument between the two managers.

Speaking after the game, Klopp admitted it was all part of the emotions of the game, and he didn’t expect to have such emotions, knowing that his side has already won the league.

“I can say in the [pre-match] meeting whatever I want I said a lot of stuff today,” Klopp told Sky Sports.

“It was a free choice. If you want to win you have to work hard. You don’t care? You don’t have to go out because Chelsea is too good and their target is too high for what they do.

“And then going out and playing a game like that I surprised myself to be honest.

“How can you put a shift in like that in a situation like this? ‘I was angry during the game and my plan was not to be angry. I was really…I had a fight with Frank Lampard stuff like this.

“We don’t plan this it’s just we are in the game and 5-3 is a perfect result to be honest.”

    Who decided to buy Kepa in the first place? Was it that woman whom Roman relies on? Usually a goalie has a good reputation. How can Chelsea have been so ignorant as to buy this man. It’s the usual story if a club wants to offload a player they will try Chelsea first because they know that they can get nearly double the fee.
