Jurgen Klopp clutches his chest with worry during Liverpool's win over Newcastle after Fabinho is wiped out

JURGEN Klopp was left clutching his chest during Liverpool's win at Newcastle after Fabinho was wiped out by a late challenge.

A robust tackle by Jonjo Shelvey in the closing moments of the game sparked the Liverpool manager's dramatic reaction.


It had otherwise been a comfortable afternoon for the Reds, who produced a professional performance to see off a resurgent Newcastle team.

Naby Keita's well-taken first-half goal was enough to seal the three points.

But Klopp looked shocked after Fabinho was clattered at the end of the game.

The Anfield boss, who extended his contract this week, had his hands clutching his hands and chest as he reacted to the tackle.
