Jurgen Klopp left furious as the fan ran onto the pitch as Liverpool sought the winner against Crystal Palace

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was furious when a fan invaded the pitch in the dying minutes of his side’s draw with Crystal Palace.

The Reds were in pursuit of a winner as they were held to a 1-1 draw by the south London side four minutes into second-half stoppage time.

And as Liverpool staged an attack in an attempt to grab the three points, a fan ran onto the turf at Anfield – much to Klopp’s dismay.

“There’s an idiot on the pitch,” said talkSPORT co-commentator for the game, Sam Matterface.

“The referee now has to stop the game and this idiot is now barracked by Jurgen Klopp.

“He’s been shouted and shouted at by the German manager because he’s just cost his side the chance to shape an attack in the dying seconds of a Premier League game they’re not going to win now.”

Before play resumed, boos rang out around Anfield as the supporter was guided off the pitch by stewards.

With just under two minutes to play, Liverpool were unable to double their goalscoring tally, meaning Palace talisman Wilfred Zaha’s opening strike was enough to let his side share the spoils.
