Jurgen Klopp: Merseyside derby record counts for nothing on Sunday

The Warm Down Bizarre goal brings Liverpool victory and Origi closure

But Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford struggled to judge the ball as it dropped from the Anfield night sky.

"I have to apologise because I didn't want to be disrespectful - but I couldn't stop myself", Klopp said, per BBC Sport.

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

The visitors created more chances their their opponents in the opening 45 minutes with Yerry Mina bundling a header wide - although he was offside - from an early free-kick offering Silva's side all the encouragement they needed. But I told him he has done many fantastic things.

With Liverpool back in Premier League action on Wednesday night when they travel to face Burnley, Klopp expressed his willingness to rotate his side after such a demanding game at the weekend. "Both teams delivered a proper fight, a proper derby from the first second".

It was a lucky day for Liverpool.

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

However, significant investment and a change in playing style introduced by Silva have seen the Toffees move up to sixth in the table, their best league position for some time, and that has caught Klopp's attention.

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".

"The squad situation, I am not 100 per cent sure in the moment to be honest".

"He did really well until that moment and it is something no-one expected. 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".

Victory made it a new record of 16 Merseyside derbies unbeaten, with Everton having failed to win at Anfield since 1999.

"There's a little bit of disbelief, more so that it was a freak goal", Coleman told Press Association Sport.

Watching it happen you just knew there would be some kind of punishment for encroaching on to the field of play. 'I will say sorry to the Everton fans again, because I know how much it means to them, ' he said.

"It's one that all the players will remember for a long time and hopefully the fans will as well because we've dominated the fixture for so long and we've extended it".

"The ball spun and as I tried to flick it over, my hand hit the bar".

"I think we did that and we probably should have scored a couple in the first half but we didn't and those are the fine margins at this level".
