Jurgen Klopp called “fake news” media reports suggesting he believed Manchester United should have received more red cards against Liverpool at Old Trafford last weekend. to further embarrass United, who lost 5-0 on Sunday, Taylor initially booked Paul Pogba for his second-half challenge against Naby Keita, but fired the French midfielder after a VAR review as Liverpool inflicted a humiliating defeat to the men of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. said “sources close to the Liverpool bench” believed Manchester-born Taylor hadn’t fired more United players because he “took pity” on them.

But Klopp was angry with the information during his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“I didn’t think about it for a second – not a second,” said the Liverpool boss ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Brighton at Anfield.

“Athletic said ‘people close to the staff’, which I still think is a dangerous saying. You can’t do that stuff. It’s not fair, it’s a lie. “

The Mail listed what it saw as four potential red card incidents in addition to Pogba’s expulsion – involving Fred, Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes and Harry Maguire – and said Liverpool doubted impartiality by Taylor.

“We talked about Ronaldo’s situation and my take was that it could be a red card. When I saw him come back he gets the ball back, it’s a dark yellow, absolutely good, “said Klopp.

“You have to be serious about these things – all of you (journalists). You can’t do these things just to sell a few lines.

United manager Solskjaer also expressed frustration at what he called “blatant lies” after media reported Pogba refused to speak to him and suspended contract negotiations following the debacle of Liverpool.

Unbeaten, Liverpool begin their game against Brighton, fifth in the table, second in the table with six wins in nine games, behind leaders Chelsea by one point.

Guinean midfielder Keita is in good shape despite having left the Old Trafford pitch on a stretcher, but Klopp will be deprived of injured Fabinho and James Milner.

Spain playmaker Thiago Alcantara has returned to training after a calf problem, but he is unlikely to appear at Anfield.
