Ayoze Perez started a fight at full time all of a sudden after the referee blew for full time at Anfield this afternoon.
Liverpool won 2-1 against Leicester City thanks to a late penalty, James Milner converted in a typically composed style and Perez lost his temper, feeling it was the wrong decision and started having some argie bargie with Adam Lallana.
It was checked by VAR and they didn’t see any reason to rule it out. A player doesn’t need to be assaulted in the box for it to be a penalty – a foul is when someone doesn’t get the ball and affects the movement of the attacker with illegal contact.
Eight games played. Eight wins. Jurgen Klopp’s Mentality Monsters at it again.

Liverpool were very close to dropping Premier League points for the first time this season but Milner’s 94th-minute penalty made sure they came away with yet another three points.
Jurgen Klopp’s side move eight points clear of current Premier League holders Manchester City after their 17th successive league victory, but Leicester will be left annoyed after Sadio Mane went down dramatically after being challenged by Marc Albrighton.
Milner rolled the ball straight down the middle after James Maddison had cancelled out Mane’s first-half opener.
Leicester, who have had a cracking start to the season, certainly made it hard work for the Reds and showed that they could go on to have a special season once again.
However their defeat does give Arsenal the chance to move third in the Premier League table against Bournemouth on Sunday.
After seeing the fighting after the game between Liverpool and Leicester players, fans took to give their reaction with many joking about why Perez might have been angry – see what they tweeted on the next page.
