Former Premier League official Mark Clattenburg says "worried" Jurgen Klopp is trying to influence referee Paul Tierney before Liverpool's clash against Manchester United, After losing at Southampton last week as the had two penalty shouts denied, Klopp claimed that United have been getting much more favourable decisions than his side when it comes to awarding penalties.

"Jurgen Klopp must be getting worried, because his comments last week about Manchester United and penalties were straight out of Sir Alex Ferguson's playbook," said Clattenburg in his column for the Mail Online.

"It was mind games — an attempt to influence referee Paul Tierney and get inside his head before a huge match between Liverpool and United this Sunday.

Or was he suggesting United have players who are encouraged to dive?"

Those figures can either be supported or not depending on which competitions you want to take into account, and while Clattenburg says the German does have a point, he has urged him to look at the penalty area actions of his own players.

And while Clattenburg says there is something in the suggestion the Solskjaer's players go down too easily in the box, he says Liverpool have players who do the same.
