Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg has slammed Jurgen Klopp for his comments about Manchester United's penalty record, dubbing the Liverpool boss a 'hypocrite'.

United head into that tie with a three-point advantage in the title race - and Clattenburg believes that may be the reason for Klopp's comments.

The Liverpool manager stated 'United had more penalties in two years than he has had in five-and-a-half years' at Anfield after his side lost 1-0 to Southampton last week.

He believes the comments are due to Klopp's growing concerns in the title race and claims it is a 'blatant attempt' to influence the officials.

"He is clearly getting edgy, though, because not since Fergie have we seen such a blatant attempt to influence a referee ahead of a big game.

"I am the only referee to give three penalties to the opposition at Old Trafford, and that was for Liverpool, of all teams, in 2014.

Klopp wasn't doing this last season when Liverpool were winning every week.
