Full Footage Of Jurgen Klopp And James Milner's Hilarious Touchline Exchange Is Even Better
Liverpool have shared full footage of Jurgen Klopp and James Milner's touchline exchange from the win over West Ham United.
Milner, 35, was hooked in the 57th minute with the game still goalless at the London Stadium.
The well-travelled midfielder was not happy one bit and looked absolutely fuming with Klopp's decision to substitute him.
But Curtis Jones, the man who replaced him, had an instant impact when he set up Mo Salah for the opener.
It brought a complete change in mood from Milner, who was still stood up on the side of the pitch and went back in to embrace his manager - laughing hysterically as he did.
After a barren run, the champions followed up a 3-1 win over Spurs with the same scoreline against the high-flying Hammers. Salah finished off a glorious counter attack for his and Liverpool's second, before Gini Wijnaldum notched the third.
Craig Dawson grabbed a late consolation for David Moyes' side.

Fans were keen to know what exactly was said between Klopp and Milner as they kissed and made up in the second half and the Liverpool boss revealed all post-match.
"He was not unhappy, it was a little bit my English!" Klopp said, as per Liverpool Echo.
"At half-time we changed the offensive formation. Millie was slightly deeper, a double six with Gini and Thiago slightly higher.
"We told Millie, because he had his hamstring stiffen up slightly, we told him to be controlled with more passing than running.
"But it was clear we would take him off - we just waited until Curtis had a proper warm-up.
"Then I saw the last long, long sprint Millie had and I thought we missed the moment and was really, really worried.
"Then he came off and said 'you told me I had to play deeper and now I run less and now you've taken me off' but then he left and came back and said 'yeah, by the way, good point, good decision!'. All fine."
