'I've deseved a lot of cards in my life' - Jurgen Klopp confused after being booked during Liverpool draw with Luton

  • Klopp confused by yellow card
  • Liverpool boss cautioned after Luton goal
  • Luis Diaz snatched 1-1 draw for Reds

WHAT HAPPENED? Klopp was shown a yellow card in the aftermath of Luton's goal. The Liverpool boss felt his side should have been awarded a penalty for grappling in the penalty area, but play was waved on an Tahith Chong scored on the counter-attack.

WHAT THEY SAID: "It was Anthony Taylor [fourth official] who gave me the yellow card, not the referee," Klopp told Sky Sports. "I spoke to the linesman and Anthony didn't like that. I was really surprised when I got the yellow card. I deserve a lot of cards in my life but this one I didn't understand. You'll have to ask Anthony why."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Liverpool were spared their blushes when second-half substitute Luis Diaz scored a 95th-minute header to rescue a point. It was an emotional moment for the attacker, who has been dealing with the kidnap of his father in Colombia.
