Mikel Arteta lashes out at Jurgen Klopp during a heated touchline altercation between Liverpool and Arsenal.

After a questionable challenge in Liverpool’s crucial match against Arsenal on Saturday, Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp clashed.

On Saturday evening, a raucous Anfield crowd cheered Liverpool’s crucial match against Arsenal in the race for European football qualification.

To avoid any repercussions, the duo had to be restrained by their respective staff members.

The pair were given yellow cards, with Arteta continuing to burn brightly in front of Klopp.
