The Merseysiders are set to face the Saints in the final game before the World Cup campaign kicks off in Qatar and will be hoping to follow three wins over Napoli, Tottenham and Derby County with a fourth victory in a row.
It’s a disappointing update given the circumstances in question with the 55-year-old having reacted furiously to the treatment of Mo Salah during the encounter with Pep Guardiola’s men.
We absolutely appreciate that shouting at an official should never be tolerated, though it’s frustrating that the root cause of the issue – ultimately, the poor quality of officiating in the English top-flight – won’t be addressed.
Klopp’s already admitted his reaction was poor, though many a fan would feel far more assured if the FA committed to improving the standard of refereeing in this country.
