Jurgen Klopp left fuming as fan runs on the pitch as Liverpool looked for winner against Crystal Palace August 16, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was left fuming as a supporter invaded the pitch in the closing minutes of his side’s draw against Crystal Palace.
The Reds were chasing a winner as they were held to a 1-1 draw by the south London side four minutes into stoppage time in the second half.
And as Liverpool put together an attack to try and snatch all three points, a fan ran onto the Anfield turf – much to the dismay of Klopp.
“There’s an idiot on the pitch,” talkSPORT’s co-commentator for the match Sam Matterface said.
“The referee now has to stop the game and that idiot is now being barracked by Jurgen Klopp.
“He is being shouted at and screamed at by the German manager, because he has just cost his team the chance of fashioning an attack in the last few seconds of a Premier League game that they are not going to win now.”
Before play was restarted, boos rang around Anfield as the supporter was guided off the field by stewards.
With just under two minutes left on the clock, Liverpool were unable to double their goal tally, meaning Palace talisman Wilfred Zaha’s opening strike was enough to let his side share the spoils.
Monday night’s result marks Liverpool’s second draw in as many games since the start of the new Premier League campaign, their worst start to a season in ten years.
