Jurgen Klopp’s Wild Celebration In Liverpool Win Draws Controversy

Everton’s Pickford optimistic ahead of Merseyside derby

Managers are not supposed to leave their technical area while a game is ongoing, and Klopp said in his post-match interview that he apologised to opposite number Silva after the final whistle.

"I had the first chance and it was Virg, so I knew there was an open ball", explained Origi, who had earlier struck the crossbar, of the dramatic victor.

In defence of Allardyce, the former England manager was tasked with keeping Everton up and he did just that, but there was precious little flair or entertainment on offer at Goodison Park last season.

City have only dropped four points in 14 games already this season and they will drop more between now and May, but giving them a four-point advantage in the first week of December would leave the chasing pack with virtually no margin for error over the second half of the season.

Jordan Pickford made an absolute mess of trying to tip the ball over the bar and instead palmed it onto the woodwork to fall right in front of his goal. They are just an outstanding side and it was a hard game today. Both teams had chances. Sadio was in very good positions to finish off, but both goalkeepers were really there and had an outstanding performance tonight. I remember Lee Carsley's victor the year we finished in the Champions League places, Andy Johnson scoring a hat-trick and Dan Gosling scoring the winning goal to get us through in the FA Cup. "I would imagine most Evertonians feel the same".

The tournament kicks off on December 12 with the South American representative playing their first match on December 18. The Copa Libertadores is the showpiece club competition in South America, equivalent to the Champions League in Europe.

'If I could describe it [how he feels] then I would have control over it. We wanted to show that by bringing strikers on. I'm not sure what the FA has to do in situations like that, but I have to wait for it! I didn't want to run, it was not my plan.

"[But] that's not the story of the game, it was the last situation of the game pretty much".

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

'A lot of teams also play counter-attack against us. "Thankfully, because it is better for the heart if football games are decided earlier". We had our moments and had brilliant chances.

Chasing a first win at Anfield since 1999, Everton created the better of the openings in the first half, but found Liverpool goalkeeper Allison in inspired form. That goal at the end gives us an unbelievable feeling in the derby.
