Speaking in the pre-match press conference (h/t Daily Mail), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer accused Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp of trying to influence referees through his "penalty" jibe aimed at Manchester United.

Klopp claimed United have received more penalties in two years than he has seen at Liverpool in his over five years in charge.

United were given a total of 22 penalties in all competitions last season, more than any team in Europe's top five leagues in the previous five years.

They have been given 42 in all competitions since Solskjaer took over in December 2018 compared to Liverpool's 19 in the same period.

Klopp's comments touched a nerve with Solskjaer, whose second-placed team are due to play leaders Liverpool in a crucial clash in the Premier League title race on January 17.

Fletcher has been coaching Manchester United youngsters since October but is now receiving a promotion to full-time work with Solskjaer's side, who currently sit joint-top of the Premier League. That is going to be my answer.

'I don't know but I don't worry about that.

I don't count how many penalties they have.

But Solskjaer was just as frustrated with the comments of other Premier League bosses, after both Tottenham's Jose Mourinho and Chelsea's Frank Lampard referenced United's good fortune with penalties. He says that is aware that this could be a tactic to influence referees. "So if they want to spend time worrying about when we get fouled in the box, I don't spend time on that". It's just when it's inside the box'.
