Latest Liverpool news: Some fans celebrate as Mauricio Pochettino is banned from touchline for Anfield clash

Mauricio Pochettino has been handed a two-match touchline ban for his altercation with referee Mike Dean after the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Burnley (h/t Guardian).

The Argentine squared up to the ref and was visibly upset after the game. The manager later apologised to the referee of his behaviour and the report adds that the two games Pochettino will miss are the trips to Southampton and Liverpool.

Big battle on the cards at Anfield

This would come as a major boost for Liverpool, although Pochettino is allowed to provide team-talks at half-time.

Spurs coming to Anfield will be one of the biggest clashes we have remaining in our Premier League run-in, and we have to win every game to overtake Manchester City.

The Cityzens hold a one point lead over us in the Premier League with nine games to go. The other tough clash we have at home is against Chelsea, but we need to take it one game at a time.

The last time Spurs played us at Anfield it ended in a 2-2 result with lots of controversy. Hopefully, we get the better of them after our win at Wembley earlier in the season.

Many Liverpool fans were happy that Pochettino got the ban, and here are some of their reactions from Twitter.
