Klopp spotted raging at officials after Alexander-Arnold suffers painful knock
Jurgen Klopp was seen on the sidelines absolutely raging at the officials after Trent Alexander-Arnold suffered a knock.
Liverpool lifted the Community Shield after a brilliant day at the office for the club following a 3-1 win over Manchester City on Saturday. Alexander-Arnold opened the scoring before Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez netted while Julian Alvarez got City's goal.
However, this was a statement from Klopp's side, who were barely tested by the Premier League champions and will give them huge confidence going into the new season. But as the Reds celebrated at the King Power Stadium, the manager lost his cool after one moment.

In the opening half, the tackles were flying in thick and fast as expected between two division rivals while one left Alexander-Arnold crocked. The Englishman was hit in a 50/50 challenge with Joao Cancelo where the Liverpool man came out second-best.
Klopp was spotted on the sidelines fuming with the officials after no foul was given, while Jordan Henderson was also giving the referee an earful. No action was taken in the end, for either the player or manager.

But the German looked a lot happier by full-time after new boy Nunez made a massive impact after coming on for the second-half. While the Uruguay international did not start, it will surely not be long before he is a staple of this Liverpool team.
It was his header that struck Ruben Dias' arm that saw a penalty given shortly after Alvarez had equalised for City. It gave Salah the chance to restore the lead and the Egyptian did not disappoint.
And with seconds left on the clock, the £85million man got the debut goal he would have dreamed of when Andy Robertson's knockdown was converted by the striker to put the result to bed and hand Liverpool the Community Shield.
