Jurgen Klopp has insisted he has 'no problem' with Chelsea manager Frank Lampard as the pair lock horns this weekend for the first time since an angry confrontation at Anfield back in July.

Klopp’s assistant Pep Lijnders was the target of Lampard’s fury and the incident, following the award of a free-kick for a foul on Sadio Mane, was picked up by TV cameras.
