Liverpool striker Origi reveals Klopp chat before substitution

Divock Origi's fortuitous 96th minute victor against fierce rivals Everton ensured that the two-point gap between Jurgen Klopp's troops and Cityzenswas restored.Although the result appeared harsh on Marco Silva's side, Liverpool, at the end of the day, showed that they can grind three points out of a fixture - an ingredient present in champion teams.

Liverpool's win leaves them in second place in the Premier League, just two points behind Pep Guardiola's City after 14 matches.

An ecstatic Klopp ran on the pitch to embrace Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson as his side celebrated Origi's goal at the other end of the pitch.

"Last season was January 1, for me it was maybe the game of the season, we won that with a late goal after playing December 30". He gave us many, many things in the past, and I'm sure in the future he'll keep giving us good things as well.

He apologise immediately after the game and news of an FA charge, as expected arrived yesterday. I don't know if we had scored in that moment what my reaction would be. I know of the results of Burnley, but when you make the analysis it is how it is - the situation of Burnley, I think everybody knew before the season it was a big challenge for them with the Europa League qualification. If there was no rule against it we, as managers, would constantly celebrate on the pitch and you would say "that's nice" (and) the whole bench would run there.

"We have to be ready, there's nothing negative in winning late against Everton". It's football. I can not tell you if it was disrespectful because I didn't see it.

"I don't think anybody thought it's massively wrong or whatever, not even the ref, they were probably surprised themselves". It's not the first time we have been there. "It's OK, he's walking around now in flip-flops but we don't play in flip-flops", said the Reds boss.

For Liverpool, Sadio Mane hurried a shot over from 10 yards and Xherdan Shaqiri was blocked by Pickford when a goal looked inevitable - signs of the home side being put off their stride by an impressive Everton.
