"That's definitely a red card, no doubt about that. People will say his leg's in the air but it's pure coincidence.
"Harry cannot judge that. If Robbo's leg is on the ground, it's a broken leg, no doubt about that."

The manager also expressed frustration that Diogo Jota was not awarded a penalty after he looked to have been fouled by Emerson inside the danger box.

Klopp added:

"When you see the situation back, and again the VAR's there, where is he stopping? It's two challenges against one player and the player's down and I don't understand that.
"These situations are crucial, these are decisive situations. Naby Keita plays a great pass, first touch, vision, good. And then a player finished the situation in a not really legal in football way and the ref and the VAR does not say a word.”
