Jurgen Klopp has spoken about his recent disagreement with referee Paul Tierney and revealed a potential setback for Diogo Jota ahead of another big night at Anfield. In his pre-Fulham press conference, the manager was asked about his touchline spat with Tierney during the 4-3 win over Tottenham. Klopp insisted that he “didn’t lie” in his post-match comments, but expressed regret at the manner in which the situation escalated. He also mentioned Ajax defender Jurrien Timber who wants to move to a “top club” and has a £44 million price tag according to Florian Plettenberg. Tierney could still be involved in future Liverpool games despite the latest controversy between him and Klopp, while the Reds boss awaits a potential touchline ban.
FIFA have threatened to impose a TV blackout across Europe for the Women’s World Cup this summer if rights cannot be agreed. Klopp also joked about being out of action for six weeks after injuring his hamstring when celebrating Jota’s goal at the weekend. Tonight, Arsenal’s chances of picking up a first league title in almost two decades could be dead in the water if they fail to beat Chelsea. The game will be broadcasted on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League from 7pm (BST) before the game gets underway at 8pm.
