Ferguson’s remark that angered Klopp as details of touchline argument emerge

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Everton assistant manager Duncan Ferguson were involved in a heated touchline argument during the Merseyside derby.

The pair were spotted rowing following a Liverpool penalty appeal, before Toffees right-back Seamus Coleman stepped in to break up the duo.

According to reports, the argument started after Klopp shouted in anger after the referee failed to award his side a penalty.

Klopp's frustrated reaction sparked a smile from Ferguson, which was spotted by the German.

The Liverpool manager is said to have then asked Ferguson: "Why are you laughing?"

This allegedly prompted the Toffees assistant to respond: "We are allowed to talk or is it just you, Jurgen?" which further angered Klopp.

It is around this time that Coleman apparently calmed the situation down.

Everton recorded an historic victory over Merseyside rivals Liverpool on Saturday.

The win was Everton's first at Anfield for 22 years, and the defeat means Liverpool have now lost four consecutive home games on the trot – the first time this has happened in 98 years.

Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson were on the scoresheet in either half for the Toffees, and Klopp admitted the result hurt him "a lot".

"We conceded a completely unnecessary first goal and we should not forget that," Klopp explained after the match. "That's a big part of the game. There were two big parts.

"You have to defend and we have to score. In one situation we didn't defend well enough, so they could score, we made a mistake if you want.

"And we didn't use their mistakes or we didn't use the things we created. And that's why we have the result."
