Burnley 1-3 Liverpool: Reds mount comeback to ensure record breaking start

06 December 2018

Liverpool Jurgen Klopp has accepted an FA charge for his celebration after Divock Origi's late victor in the Merseyside derby on Sunday.

Footage has surfaced since the weekend of Klopp celebrating manically, and racing around the perimeter of the pitch, when in charge of his first club Mainz. "Now I just want to increase my number of games". The pressure is on the Reds to keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the table. "I talk for my side but of course you have to be respectful for the other ones".

He apologised for his actions but the Football Association announced on Monday afternoon that he had been charged with misconduct.

Following the game, Klopp insisted he had apologised to the Everton boss for his celebration, but Silva revealed that was not the case and acknowledged he had not seen the incident at the time. He played it back out to the edge of the box where James Milner teed up a shot and drilled past Joe Hart. Again, all my respect for Everton, really good.

"First of all, I have to apologise for my run".

Speaking to reporters (via BBC Sport) Guardiola said: "There are a lot of emotions in that moment".

The defender - one of four players to retain his place in Jurgen Klopp's side - suffered a heavy challenge from Clarets counterpart Ben Mee, which saw him slide down the bank behind the touchline 20 minutes into the game.

I'm very focused in the game and sometimes especially in those moments when you score, because that's a period when you can be vulnerable straight after.

"It happened, it's a fine, I pay that, let's carry on".

Liverpool kept up their unbeaten record and kept up the pressure on Manchester City by coming from behind to beat Burnley.
