Liverpool boss Klopp tells Solskjaer on Man Utd penalties record: These are facts

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has again highlighted the number of penalties awarded last season to Sunday's opponents Manchester United.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer accused Klopp last month of having an influence on the Red Devils receiving spot kicks this season, after missing out twice at West Ham.

However Liverpool boss Klopp, at his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday's showdown at Old Trafford, insisted once more that United's 11 spot-kicks last season was a large amount - while playing down the dialogue between the two managers on the situation.

"I think that Ole said it, in between what I said and when Ole said it they had 5 penalties and we had two," Klopp said.

"Come on, and we all know we cannot influence refs with things like that.But having the amount of penalties United had before that was quite exceptional.

"They are good, they go in the box, they have these kinds of situations but we have them as well and didn't get even a similar amount of penalties.

"That's just facts. Who cares? It's done. Yeah, nothing else to say about it."
