Jurgen Klopp has responded to a bottle-throwing incident during Saturday’s Merseyside derby draw against Everton.

The Liverpool manager was attacked by a fan behind the technical area with a plastic bottle in the 71st minute after the hosts disallowed a VAR goal.

Although he wasn’t injured in the situation, the German says it could still have been “really dangerous”.

After the game, Klopp said: “No, I didn’t see it. I thought it was a glass bottle but it wasn’t. I’ve seen it now because it’s still at the “crime scene”.

“It looked like a glass bottle, that would have been really dangerous. But it wasn’t that, it was a plastic bottle.”

The incident happened in the second half when defender Conor Coady was flagged for offside by the video assistant referee after putting in a Neil Maupay cross.

As the bottle was thrown, a home fan ran onto the pitch to confront referee Anthony Taylor about the decision. The Football Association is aware of both incidents and will investigate them.

There was a tense atmosphere throughout Goodison Park as the two sides battled each other in the game.

Liverpool came closest to scoring when they hit the woodwork twice within moments in the first half, while Everton’s best opportunity can be seen as Coady’s disallowed goal.

The centre-back was just offside when he deflected Maupay’s cross from the six-yard box into the back net, which went undetected but was eventually knocked down by VAR.
