West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini took aim at Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp after last night’s 1-1 draw.
James Milner was offside when Adam Lallana passed him the ball which led to Sadio Mane scoring for the Reds.
Klopp’s Borussia Dortmund beat Pellegrini’s Malaga 3-2 in the 2013 Champions League quarter-finals courtesy of a winner where four players were offside.
Pellegrini said after the 1-1 draw at the London Stadium: “Klopp is used to winning with offside goals. He beat me against Malaga with a goal seven metres offside. So he cannot complain about anything.”
Of the Reds’ chances, he said: “They scored a goal one metre offside. In the last minute with Origi in front of the linesman, again one metre offside.”
The former Manchester City boss added: “I said in the week that we need to win this game for our fans and if we are going to give a hand to Manchester City, well, they are my club also. Maybe that was the reason the manager of Liverpool didn’t like it.”
