NEW footage has emerged showing fuming Frank Lampard telling the Liverpool bench to “f*** off” during a heated touchline row.

The Chelsea boss branded Liverpool “arrogant” after the title winners dented their Champions League hopes with a thrilling 5-3 victory.

WARNING: Video contains offensive language

The incident was sparked after Mateo Kovacic was adjudged to have fouled Sadio Mane as the Senegal star broke at pace.

Lampard was furious with the decision and made his thoughts to the fourth official well known.

But it sparked a reaction from Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool bench who were then locked in a war of words from the technical area.

With no fans in the stadium, audio footage captured what was said with Lampard initially shouting: “How is that a foul? There’s no foul there.”

He then tells Klopp to “sit down” before getting more irate when Klopp repeatedly tells him to “calm down.”

Lampard then responds: “If he’s going off at me I’ll f****** say something.”

Klopp’s assistant Pep Lijnders then appears to weigh into the argument in which Lampard shouts: “You can f*** off and all.

“You think you can give it the big one, f*** off.”

To make matters worse for Lampard, Trent Alexander-Arnold scored from the free-kick to put Liverpool 2-0 ahead.

Liverpool threatened to run away with the contest when Naby Keita, Alexander-Arnold and Georginio Wijnaldum put the hosts 3-0 ahead after 43 minutes.

Olivier Giroud pulled one back before goals from Roberto Firmino, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completed the eight-goal thriller.

After the contest, Lampard hit out at the behaviour of Liverpool’s backroom bench.

He told Sky Sports after the contest: “For me, it wasn’t a foul from Kovacic, and there were a lot of things that weren’t going our way.

“But I’ve not got a problem with Jurgen Klopp. The way he’s managed this team has been fantastic.

“Fair play to Liverpool Football Club, they’ve won the league, but also don’t get too arrogant with it.

“That was my point, but it’s done. In match play, you can get emotional and that was it.”

Chelsea head into the final day knowing a win or draw against Wolves would seal their Champions League spot for next season.
