Liverpool’s winning streak in the Premier League has officially stopped at number 4, after a disastrous defeat in the trip to Brentford’s field last night. Despite the absence of main striker Ivan Toney, coach Thomas Frank’s teachers and students still excellently defeated The Kop with a score of 3-1 in the end.
Speaking at the post-match press conference, coach Jurgen Klopp accused Brentford of repeatedly “circling the law”, especially in set-piece situations with invalid collisions. At the same time, the German strategist also said that Bryan Mbeumo’s third goal should have been removed because the player had committed a foul.
When asked if he had spoken to the referees about the matter, Klopp told beIN Sports:
“Yes, but it’s actually the same as I talk to my microwave. Actually you don’t get any response. It’s always been like that.”
“Pre-season they gave us advice that players have to be careful in situations like that because the referee will keep an eye on them. But you see in this game almost everything is allowed, it’s always out of bounds.”
