Liverpool were once again humbled in the league, the sobering reality this time around was a 2-0 loss at Anfield against Everton in the Merseyside derby. Arguably the lowest point Liverpool have been in a seriously long time.
It was expected that emotions would be running high on the touchline and they appeared to boil over as Jurgen Klopp and Duncan Ferguson appeared to clash. Julien Laurens revealed on social media what happened.
“Why are you laughing?” shouted Klopp towards a smiling Duncan Ferguson.
“We are allowed to talk or is it just you Jurgen?” said Seamus Coleman the Everton full-back.

The loss leaves Liverpool joint with Everton on 40 points but the Toffees could rise above the Reds with a victory in their game in hand.
Carlo Ancelotti was visibly emotional after the game giving his interviews to the press and spoke of how important it was that Everton got the victory at Anfield, the first time that it has occurred in a very long time.
“We are really happy, really pleased. After a long time Everton are able to win at Anfield, it is a good gift for our supporters,” he said.
“The performance was good. We were focused, worked hard and when we had the opportunities we were clinical. We have three points.”
“The derby is a special game as we said before but we have to catch three points at home too. It [our form] is not good enough at home.”
Everton’s ambitions were given a huge boost in their fight for a European place this season. They are just 3 points off 4th placed Chelsea after the Blues drew 1-1 away at Southampton.
But, with a game in hand, could push even closer in a short space of time.
