Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been praised by Reds fans for stopping Georginio Wijnaldum be sent off against Sheffield United.
Liverpool were getting frustrated by the Blades after the visitors took the lead at Anfield from the penalty spot.
Roberto Firmino levelled before half-time though Liverpool tempers had looked like spilling over prior to the equaliser.
Wijnaldum appeared determined to get to Sheffield United star George Baldock after a slight tussle though manager Klopp was not letting it happen.
And Reds fans praised their boss, with one writing on social media: “Good work from Klopp that. Possibly saved Wijnaldum a red.”
And another adding: “Tempers fraying at the moment as Klopp has to restrain Wijnaldum as he attempts to go at Baldock. Smart move on the #LFC manager’s part.”
While a third put: “30 min gone, Liverpool’s highlight so far has been Klopp physically restraining Wijnaldum from lashing out at George Baldock.”
Ahead of the game, Klopp had warned his side of the challenge they face.
The German had said: “The games we had against them [Sheffield United] last season were as tough as any we faced, be it in domestic competition or European football.
“Both games could have gone either way. Anything less than our best and I know we will have problems today. But we won’t allow that to happen. We will be ready.
“There is one change to Sheffield United that certainly makes them more dangerous. And that is the arrival of Rhian [Brewster].

“Our guy, our man – this will always be the case in our hearts. But now on the pitch he is Sheffield United. And anyone who knows Rhian will be aware that sentiment will be firmly left outside of Anfield when he arrives today.
“It would not be possible for me to understate my love, respect and admiration for Rhi. Such a special guy on and off the pitch. I’m not going to lie, agreeing to that transfer was really hard.”
