Substitute Divock Origi capitalized on a misjudged save from Jordan Pickford to clinch the Merseyside Derby for Liverpool in injury time.

The ball fell to Virgil van Dijk, who swung his right leg at it and sent the ball looping into the air and looking like it was heading out. It bounced a second time onto the bar and dropped down to the waiting Origi, who headed home from a meter out. I think we were [lacking] with the [final] decision but we did really well and we didn't deserve this result. I didn't want to run to Ali (goalkeeper Alisson), I couldn't stop obviously.

"I'm proud of my players, proud of how they performed this evening", said Silva.

The Reds are now unbeaten in the Premier League and are second on the league table with 33 points, two behind Manchester City.

With City winning 3-1 at home to Bournemouth in Saturday, anything but three points for Liverpool would open up a daunting gap behind the reigning champions.

Klopp went on to cite the occasions that the clubs have stood together: "Whether it be Hillsborough, donations to foodbanks or individual situations- like the serious human struggles which Sean and his family are facing- Everton and Liverpool stand shoulder-to-shoulder when it really matters". "That is bulls*** and you all know that", he said. "I try to play my game and enjoy it. And in a derby, it makes it even more special".

On 24 September, the former Chelsea and Roma player won the Puskas award for his awesome goal against Everton in the Premier League last season.

At least they created chances against Everton - unlike in the loss to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

Sadio Mane also missed two good opportunities in either half to keep the score level until the late stages in the game.

"We had that free kick". The days of rolling over and being frightened have gone, I only see improvement in this Everton team.

Everton are winless at Anfield since 1999 but the result could have been very different had Yerry Mina or Andre Gomes put away favourable first-half chances, leading former defender Weir - who played for Everton in 13 Merseyside derbies - to suggest their barren run could soon be over. Bernardo has his shot cleared off the line by Joe Gomez! .
