Mane injured, Liverpool bench 'crazy'

"That is the only thing I do not like". Don't talk to the referee and say it was not a foul.

"I know a few people - especially from other clubs - think I am insane because I look like I look, I'm sorry for this but I am really emotional".

SADIO MANE will miss Liverpool's match against Bournemouth and could be out for longer, confirms Jurgen Klopp.

Mane was showing some excellent form once again today after scoring a fine opening goal in the eighth minute as the Reds went in to half time leading 2-1 thanks to another superb effort from Philippe Coutinho.

"If you don't have injuries, you will be in the place of Chelsea", the 27-year-old Croatian added.

"I don't know exactly (the extent of the injury), I don't want to speculate now".

"I saw a few, even in the replay, I saw a few tackles that had to be red". "We had some chances but we did a mistake and they punished us".

Victory strengthened Liverpool's claims for Champions League football next season, but they have dropped points in surprising fashion at times this season and Lovren says they must be focused for the visit of Bournemouth on Wednesday.

"World-class goal", said Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp, who thanked Brazil for giving back Coutinho and compatriot Roberto Firmino in "a fantastic mood".

Wow! Shade thrown at Jurgen Klopp by Ronald Koeman.

Lovren singled out another Brazilian for praise, however, Lucas Leiva, who shone on his return to central midfield and dominated against Barkley and co. "They were insane", said Koeman. He was brilliant. He was playing like he has played 38 games in a row.

"I'm very happy. I think they're always special games - from the moment I came to Liverpool I felt the gravity of this game and to be able to help the team win is important". It is not just Coutinho.

"But it wouldn't have bothered Koeman as much had Everton won the derby". Not every game; every five minutes.

The Dutchman expressed pride in his side's performance, but said the Liverpool bench needed to "behave a little bit more".

Pennington's strategy of allowing Coutinho to turn infield and shoot on his favoured right foot nearly cost Everton when the playmaker's effort was pushed up in the air by Robles and Phil Jagielka had to clear off his own line.
