Jurgen Klopp admitted he should not have thrown a water bottle when Liverpool salvaged a 3-3 Premier League draw at Arsenal

Jurgen Klopp admitted he should not have thrown a water bottle when Liverpool salvaged a 3-3 Premier League draw at Arsenal. The Reds boss slammed a water bottle into the ground when Roberto Firmino levelled, in a match where the visitors had earlier squandered a 2-0 lead. Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil all struck for Arsenal in five second-half minutes to turn the tie, after Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah had earlier put Liverpool in control.

"I react sometimes in a bit of a strange way," said Klopp, of his reaction to Firmino's goal. "I apologised to the people around me straight away. I threw a bottle on the ground. Nothing serious happened, but still it wasn't good. "I was not happy in that moment, but I really thought that was at least the minimum of what we deserved. We of course deserved to win, we had more chances. But to lose three goals in five minutes, it's an obvious problem."
