The charismatic Jurgen Klopp celebrated the winner in an unusually calm manner as he strolled down the touchline.
But as cameras followed him, eagle eye viewers noticed a man – wearing an official sponsored jacket – sitting on the bench smiling and fist pumping.
Rival supporters including many Manchester City fans were quick to jump on social media to question the footage.
