Jurgen Klopp has had his say on the touchline spat he had with Mikel Arteta during Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Arsenal.
The pair locked horns when the Spanish boss was incensed by an aerial challenge by Sadio Mane on Takehiro Tomiyasu, insisting it was a foul.
But Klopp disagreed. “It was a completely clean situation. Two players jumped in the air. And the bench of Arsenal is going for whatever,” Klopp said.
