A late Merseyside derby winner meant Liverpool maintained the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City

Klopp ran onto the field and jumped into the arms of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker after seeing Divock Origi score a goal in the sixth minute of stoppage time in a 1-0 victory at Anfield on Sunday.

First, Yerry Mina headed wide from close-range from a free-kick and then Andre Gomes's double effort drew a stunning save from Alisson and goalline clearance from Joe Gomez. They are just an outstanding side and it was a hard game today. It was a tough, tough match for both teams.

To most Reds this is an example of why we have the best manager in the world.

"He can be more consistent - first controls, his receptions, many, many things. I tried to be sharp and in the end Virgil (van Dijk) gave a nice assist", he said.

Pickford went up for it but fluffed his save and the ball fell for Origi, who came on late for his first Premier League appearance since August 2017, to nod into the empty net.

Origi has now scored three goals in the Merseyside derby and Klopp said he has rarely viewed scenes like his dramatic late victor.

However, Silva denied Klopp's version of events, saying he didn't apologise to him, although he stated that he hadn't seen the incident unfold anyway.

The German said he had subsequently apologised to his Everton counterpart Marco Silva - something Silva claimed had not been the case. I know the manager [Marco Silva] well. I didn't expect it at all.

Everton defender Seamus Coleman has backed team-mate Jordan Pickford to win them more points than he loses after the England goalkeeper's howler against Liverpool.

"I told him but, you know, it's a special feeling to win the derby in the last minute".

"I did against Germany [for Netherlands recently], so maybe that's why it was in my head".

I would agree with Marco. "Overall I think it was a good team performance".

"I think it is clear for everyone we didn't deserve and it was a lucky, lucky, lucky day for Liverpool".

There were spells out there today where liverpool looked frankly ordinary.

James Madison impressed as Leicester City beat Watford 2-0, while it looks as if Nuno Espiritu Santo will have to back to the drawing board as Wolves lost 2-0 in Cardiff, a result which means they have taken just one point from the last 6 games.

Gordon, I have been looking for a silver lining all evening. We don't send messages to each other and we don't call. Proud to be an Evertonian as always. We are devastated for ourselves and the fans.

"But he did well and it's not nice and it's not a good feeling to make a mistake like that". I'm not sure how Liverpool have not scored yet!

The man himself, though, sees room for improvement.

Cruel, but I do hope that Silva will start Lookman over Walcott. But very often it is not possible.

"We have to keep the ball, especially against counter-attacking sides". "For me personally, it's another game and another chance for me to perform to my best ability; that is what I always do, try and perform well", he commented.
