Klopp 'corrects' journalist over world class goal question

Jurgen Klopp snapped at a journalist who asked a question about a goal that was wrongly ruled out for offside during Liverpool's 2-0 defeat to Newcastle at St James' Park.

With Newcastle leading 1-0 at the time during Sunday's Premier League clash, Alberto Moreno scored a volleyed effort which was chalked off by the linesman's flag. Replays showed the decision was incorrect as the Spanish international was level with the Magpies defence as the pass to him was made.

When asked about the decision after the match, the Liverpool manager delivered a sharp response over the 'world class goal'.

Klopp hints at quiet January for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has suggested it could be a quiet January transfer window for Liverpool despite the club's busy festive period.

After seeing his beaten 2-0 by Newcastle at St James' Park, the Liverpool manager was asked if he intends to dip into the transfer market next month. But Klopp hinted against making panic buys.

Klopp also made the comparison between Liverpool's busy schedule and top-flight fixtures in his native Germany. Bundesliga teams get more than a month off over winter, while Liverpool play six games in that same period.

McClaren 'relieved' after Newcastle win

Steve McClaren said he felt 'sheer relief' after Newcastle United's second goal during their Premier League win over Liverpool on Sunday.

Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum scored to make it 2-0 in added time to clinch an all important victory for the Magpies at St James' Park.

Newcastle remain in the relegation zone despite the win but moved level on points with both Bournemouth and Norwich City.

After seeing his team throw away a two-goal lead against Chelsea in September, the club's Head Coach said he was 'relieved' to get the result.

Sterling break was 'already planned' says Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says Raheem Sterling's winter break had been 'already planned' since the summer.

The 20-year-old forward was given permission to go on holiday to Jamaica, and missed both the club's FA Cup win over AFC Wimbledon and yesterday's 1-0 win at Sunderland in the Premier League.

But Rodgers said he felt Sterling needed a rest.

Sunderland fans 'need to accept the reality' says Poyet

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet says fans 'need to accept the reality' of the situation the club is in.

The home crowd vented their frustrations during yesterday's 1-0 defeat to Liverpool at the Stadium of Light. That result leaves the Black Cats just one point above the Premier League relegation zone.

But Poyet said:

I think they should look at the team. I think it's been going on for the last four of five years. I think they should be a little bit more patient.
