Before the striker's intervention which came from a mishit shot by Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool had been frustrated by Everton and, in particular, their goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

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

"Unfortunately these things happen but it happened at the wrong time for us". But I told him he has done many unbelievable things.

But how the 100th Anfield league derby still stood goalless at that stage was a surprise with the first half, especially, producing multiple chances for both teams.

"It was a lucky day for him this afternoon but that is football".

He said: "As a player I would be made up if I looked up and seen my manager running on the pitch showing his raw emotion and passion like Klopp did just make me wish I could play for him now".

"I cannot say it was disrespectful because I didn't see, when I see that moment maybe I can speak more about that situation".

"If you look at the footage I thought 'What am I doing?' first", said Van Dijk.

Silva said: "He didn't apologise to me".

"It's good we have this one day more and it is not Wednesday - Saturday because that would be really hard. It is easy to understand how the stadium celebrated the goal in the last minute". "Wednesday - Sunday will be enough to have a almost full squad then, but I don't know exactly how the situation will be tomorrow for training".

And, his celebration was even crazier than his one in the Merseyside derby.

"It all changed a little bit (for him), you lose confidence and you don't play from here (touching his stomach) any more".

But whatever happens over the coming months his goal for the 1-0 victory will be remembered for extending Everton's wait for a win at Anfield into a 20th year as the hosts made it 10 wins and nine draws to keep the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City, whose lead was cut to two points again.

With the ball looking as if it might hit the cross-bar, the England man pushed the ball upwards and presented Origi with a simple headed finish into an open net. It's on the pitch you have to do your talking and it is the coach who makes the decisions so the best I can do is show my best form.

Cardiff have previously been linked with the player, with Clyne's experience likely to come as a huge boost to any team battling against relegation.
