Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has explained why Leicester City forward Ayoze Perez was so agitated at the end of today's fixture at Anfield.

The Foxes looked to have ended the Reds perfect start to the season after James Maddison's goal cancelled out Sadio Mane's early strike, only for James Milner to score a penalty deep in injury time to make it eight wins from eight in the Premier League for the Merseysiders.

After the final whistle, Perez was involved in a scuffle along with Milner and Adam Lallana, with Scotland defender Andrew Robertson in the periphery of the melee.

Speaking in the post-match press conference, Klopp said: "Andy Robertson celebrated on final whistle and pushed [Perez], which he probably didn't expect, which he was annoyed at."

The win extends Liverpool's lead to eight points at the top of the table with Manchester City yet to play this weekend, while Leicester sit third, ahead of Crystal Palace on goal difference.
