Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was seen arguing with Everton assistant Duncan Ferguson during the Merseyside derby.
The Toffees took an early lead at Anfield through Richarlison as they looked to beat their rivals for the first time since 2010.
Liverpool have struggled in recent weeks despite being reigning Premier League champions with Klopp having grown frustrated.
And those frustrations appeared to boil over with the Reds denied a penalty following a possible handball.
Ferguson is said to have been stood on the touchline with a bemused look on his face, with Klopp questioning: "Why are you laughing?"
An argument between the pair ensued before Everton defender Seamus Coleman intervened, according to reporters at Anfield.
Coleman is believed to have said: “We are allowed to talk or is it just you Jurgen?”
Fans loved what they saw, with one writing on social media: “I would back Klopp against most but Duncan Ferguson? Nah, leave it. Ferguson would have Klopp for breakfast.”
While another added: “Klopp’s whinginess is really starting to be a grating personality trait since they’ve been bad.”
And a third put: “Duncan Ferguson always likes a rumble or two.”
VAR had a brief look at the penalty shout though there appeared to be very little in it and play continued.
Klopp did not have the best first half with Liverpool’s injury crisis worsening as well as Everton leading.
Jordan Henderson was forced off with an apparent hamstring injury to add to the growing list of defensive injury problems.
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are in battles to play again this season with Henderson slotting in as Fabinho and Joel Matip remain absent.
