Jurgen Klopp: Manchester United have more penalties in two years than Liverpool in five-and-a-half


Jurgen Klopp has been left fascinated by Manchester United penalty record after Liverpool's defeat to Southampton 'where Sadio and Gini were denied a penalty'

Jurgen Klopp rails against his side being denied penalty kicks as Liverpool lost 1-0 to Southampton.

The Premier League leaders lost at Saint Mary's on Monday, with former Reds striker Danny Ings scoring inside two minutes.

But Klopp watched his side's calls for penalty twice when Georginio Wijnaldum's shot from inside the box was blocked by the hand of Jack Stephens before Kyle Walker-Peters went unpunished after bringing down Sadio Mane in the penalty area.

"The best situations we had were with Sadio having the ball at his feet," Klopp told Sky Sports.

"For anyone to say he's a diver is the biggest joke...He had two situations where other teams would get a penalty.

"The handball, I don't know who will explain that to me. In these situations we were unfortunate.

"I hear Manchester United had more penalties in two years than I had in five and a half years. I have no idea if that's my fault, or how that can happen.

"But it's no excuse for the performance. We cannot change it, we have to respect the decisions. We can change our performance. That's our focus now."
