But ahead of Sunday's Anfield clash between the top two, Reds manager Klopp said: “I can say Sadio is not a diver. There was a situation in the Aston Villa game where he got contact and went down.
“Maybe it was not a penalty but there was contact. It's not as if he jumped over a leg and went down.
“All the other penalties were penalties.
“I am 100 per cent sure that if something like this happened for Manchester City they would want to have a penalty because somebody kicked their player in the box."
Klopp further stoked up the war of words by claiming rival Guardiola was “not too nice".
He added: “I am not too sure if I want to put oil on the fire. I am not interested in these kind of things. And I promise not to mention tactical fouls."
