Liverpool vs. Everton - Football Match Report

But personal acclaim is not Salah's objective this term, he believes Jurgen Klopp's side are capable of ending the club's six-year wait for a trophy.

"I didn't want to be disrespectful but I couldn't stop myself".

Yerry Mina should have opened the scoring for Everton after four minutes with a free header from close range, but it bounced wide of Alisson's goal.

Incredible scenes saw Jurgen Klopp run on to the pitch and celebrate with goalkeeper Alisson as the rest of the Reds celebrated in front of the Kop and claim derby day bragging rights.

Liverpool's victory lifts them within two points of leaders Manchester City with Chelsea and Arsenal moving above Tottenham to third and fourth, respectively.

Klopp apologised on TV for his celebrations and also explained he had said sorry to his opposite number Marco Silva after the win, which closes the gap to City to just two points. "I'm not sure he knew what to do once the ball went in, but it was a perfectly good goal and we got the three points". I think he [Origi] should have scored the one before when I headed it to him.

Alisson played it to Trent Alexander-Arnold and his long punt was cleared only as far as Virgil van Dijk, whose skewed long-range effort looked to be going out of play.

"Both teams delivered a proper fight, proper derby from the first second", Klopp said.

Liverpool's Kenyan-born striker Divock Origi scored a stoppage time victor to see Liverpool claim a crucial victory against derby rivals Everton on Sunday.

And in a Sky Sports interview Klopp added: "It means now we have to control more games".

"I just try to play my game, whatever role it is".

"What I can tell you, like we started the match all together, like we have been working since the first day all together, we finish the match all together". We have always had a bit of class as a football club, their manager at the end, showed us all that he & his club know fuck all of the word "class". When Lookman has the ball at his feet you get the feeling anything can happen, and I hope we keep hold onto him and see him flourish. Rivalries go out the window with stuff like that; you don't see a crest or a jersey, you see a man who came to support his team and unfortunately it didn't end too well for him that night. Both are likely to return at Burnley in a game which Liverpool should win comfortably, especially after the morale boost they earned by beating Everton.
