Klopp reveals why he didn’t watch Milner penalty

Jürgen Klopp has explained why he looked away when James Milner stepped up to take his penalty against Manchester City on Sunday.

The Liverpool No.7 put his team ahead at the Etihad Stadium with an expert spot-kick inside the left post, after Roberto Firmino had been fouled inside the area by Gael Clichy.

It was the seventh time this season and the 10th in total since he joined the Reds in 2015 that Milner has successfully dispatched a penalty.
