Sean Dyche appeared unhappy with Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool beat Burnley (BPI/REX)Jurgen Klopp and Sean Dyche were involved in a heated exchange after Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Burnley on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool kept pace with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League following goals from James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri.

But after the final whistle, Dyche appeared unhappy with Klopp and the pair exchanged several words on the touchline.

Dyche claimed that he simply said ‘well done’ to Klopp, despite their exchange lasting for over 30 seconds.

But Dyche may have been frustrated with Klopp constantly voicing his complaints to Mike Dean, the fourth official, during the second half of the match.

Klopp was unhappy with the ferocity of the challenges from Burnley’s players throughout the game and made his feelings clear to the officials.

The Liverpool manager angry with the tackle from Ben Mee on Joe Gomez, who now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

‘We won the game but the challenges from the beginning, the sliding tackling on that wet ground, I really think the referee should have said something earlier,’ said Klopp.

‘You get the ball, nice, but it’s like bowling because you get the player as well. It happened four or five times.

‘The first three or four challenges everybody likes it. I know that. It’s part of football but it lead to the situation. Okay, no foul but Joe Gomez is injured.’
