Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is not a fan of his spare pair of glasses.

The German manager broke his usual pair during wild celebrations as Adam Lallana scored a 94th-minute winner at Carrow Road on Saturday morning.

Moments earlier Liverpool had seen Sebastian Bassong score an injury time equaliser for Norwich City to make it 4-4 after what had been a brilliant game.

But after a miscued header from Robbie Brady, Lallana pounced to score a late winner for the Reds.

During ecstatic celebrations, Jurgen Klopp had his glasses broken as players and staff went wild - Christian Benteke was the offender.

He walked off the pitch without a pair, but at his press conference ahead of the League Cup semi-final on Tuesday night, Klopp was again bespectacled.

However, he's not a fan.

"These are not new - they are my second pair of glasses. Now I have to be careful," he joked.

"They are black and I look a little bit like a serial killer but you [the reporter] have ones like that too so you are used to it.'

Asked whether the Belgian striker would have to pay for a new pair, Klopp said: "It was my fault and never in my life has someone had to pay for something which is my fault."
