"I couldn’t stop myself!" - Klopp on passionate celebration vs Everton

"I couldn’t stop myself!" - Klopp on passionate celebration vs Everton

Fabinho had never experienced the Merseyside derby before Sunday - but the intensity of the clash between Liverpool and Everton came as no surprise to the Brazilian.

There were chances for both teams in an entertaining encounter but the match appeared to be heading for a goalless stalemate as the seconds ticked away. "Not cool, but it happened".

"If I could describe it [how he feels] then I would have control over it". I think many people wouldn't have been in position to follow up but he's gambled and it has worked out for us.

"He didn't apologise to me", he said.

Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson is back in contention after serving his one-match suspension against Everton while Dejan Lovren is also expected to return to the squad after being left out of the Merseyside derby.

"This time also I can't say my individual one but my target now is to win something for the club".

Everton looked to be on course to deny Liverpool the victory they needed to close the gap on Manchester City at the top of the table but Origi's first Liverpool goal since May 2017 snatched all three points.

'Immediately after the game I apologised to Marco Silva when we spoke to each other.

Jurgen Klopp's side are not playing with the same free-flowing verve as they did last season but just look at the numbers.

The 20-year-old academy graduate has enjoyed a good last few weeks personally, scoring his maiden England goal and then following that with a brilliant free-kick in the win at Watford.

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

Silva, however, claims he did not hear Klopp say sorry. "I tried to be sharp and in the end Virgil (van Dijk) gave a nice assist", he said.

On 24 September, the former Chelsea and Roma player won the Puskas award for his incredible goal against Everton in the Premier League last season. "Thankfully, because it is better for the heart if football games are decided earlier".

We played well today, a content style that I have not seen us play for many a year, at Anfield especially, a freak goal has undone us which was a sickener.

Anfield erupted and Evertonians sunk to their knees, and none were more sorrowful looking than Pickford, who mouthed the word "sorry " to the visiting fans at the end.

Klopp's men were back at Melwood for a recovery session on Monday afternoon and the Liverpool boss has hinted he's ready to freshen things up by rotating his squad against Sean Dyche's side on Wednesday.
