Klopp highlights Arsenal vs Brentford injustice to question Burnley’s tactics

'Watch wrestling': Jurgen Klopp highlights Arsenal's injustice against Brentford to criticize Burnley's tactics

Jurgen Klopp was eager to highlight an incident from Arsenal’s opening day loss to Brentford last weekend, questioning refereeing during Liverpool’s meeting with Burnley this afternoon.

Reds cruise

Klopp’s men, of course, were back in action not long ago.

The Reds welcomed Burnley to Anfield, for his second outing of the new Premier League season.

Liverpool headed into the proceedings as big favorites to take two wins out of two to start the campaign, after doing brief work with Norwich City at Carrow Road last weekend.

And when all was said and done in Merseyside this afternoon, another comfortable 3-point shot is precisely what was in store for the hosts.

A commanding display saw Liverpool take a well-deserved lead in 20 minutes, when Kostas Tsimikas’s shot from the left was guided home in style by Diogo Jota.

And the score for the showdown was completed 20 minutes to go, when a fluid team movement finally culminated with Trent Alexander-Arnold’s clever division pass from the defense being whipped by Sadio Mane:

‘Look at the wrestling’

Liverpool, on the back of today’s action at Anfield, now have an early lead in the Premier League table.

However, as described above, speaking during his post-match interview this afternoon, the club chief wasn’t exactly all smiles in his assessment of the 90 minutes of action.

Instead, Klopp wanted to draw attention to Burnley’s physical focus in the proceedings, as Sean Dyche’s men had been guilty of no fewer than 12 fouls, none of which resulted in a yellow card brandished by referee Mike Dean. .

The German, in turn, went on to highlight an incident of Arsenal’s surprising 2-0 opening day loss to newly promoted Brentford, which saw compatriot Bernd Leno hampered in his efforts to prevent the Bees from doubling their lead. :

Such incidents, in Klopp’s opinion, should be suppressed, in the best interest of ‘protecting the players’ involved:
