Jurgen Klopp and Mohamed Salah argue on the touchline just moments after West Ham score vs Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp and Mohamed Salah appeared to exchange strong words on the touchline in the second half of Liverpool's 2-2 draw with West Ham United.

The Egyptian was not named in Liverpool's starting XI for the clash at the London Stadium on Saturday, with Klopp instead preferring Harvey Elliott, Cody Gakpo and Luis Diaz in attack.

However, when Salah was called upon late in the second half - as part of a triple substitution alongside Joe Gomez and Darwin Nunez - he and Klopp looked to exchange some heated words on the touchline just seconds before Michail Antonio equalised for the Hammers.

Salah could be seen gesturing towards the Liverpool manager before Nunez was forced to intervene and separate the pair. Liverpool could only draw Saturday's game at the London Stadium 2-2 after Antonio's late header rescued a point for David Moyes' side.

Speaking about the incident post-match, former Reds forward Peter Crouch said: "It didn't look good, I don't think it looks good for the club.

"Mo Salah is a player who has started the majority of games for Liverpool and he will be fuming to be on the bench. But no-one likes to see this between a manager and a key player."

While Ally McCoist said: "You see Salah coming back to have another bite and one of his team-mates looks like he has to intervene - that stuff should be for behind closed doors.

"Yeah, I do [think Salah will leave]. He has been one of the best players we have seen in this league, nothing short of fantastic for Liverpool, but his form has dipped and it looks to me like he might be moving.

"It might suit both parties - suit Salah to move on and Liverpool to reinvest the money they get for him."
