Pickford error hands Liverpool derby day victory

Posted December 03, 2018

Yet that proved only a prelude to a weird ending as Origi, brought on in the 84th minute playing in his first Premier League game since the beginning of last season, took his second chance to write his name into Merseyside derby folklore, sparking scenes of wild celebration typified by Klopp's sprint to rejoice with Alisson.

"It's hard to take but I guess we can take positives from the way we played".

"To be honest I didn't see it (Klopp's run)".

"What I told him will stay between us but what I can tell you is we started the match altogether, we have been working since the first day altogether and we will analyse the match altogether", he said.

Liverpool won 1-0 to move two points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.

"The manager emphasised all week we play our game, we do our thing", he added.

The 1-0 victory extended Liverpool's unbeaten sequence in Merseyside derbies in the Premier League to 16 games although the manner of the winning goal made this one of the more unforgettable of those games.

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

Reds boss Klopp responded by charging onto the field to celebrate with goalkeeper Alisson Becker. I don't think he expected anything like that either. We have always had a bit of class as a football club, their manager at the end, showed us all that he & his club know fuck all of the word "class".

The two Senegal internationals are friends off the pitch and last week the Everton player revealed that the pair don't talk in the build up, saying, "About a week before the derby we stop talking".

Klopp said: "They don't have the same respect for us that they have for Man City".

"I used to play for Roma and they had a derby there but here, it is something different".

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".

Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk has been named as the PFA Player of the Month for November.

"Immediately after the game I apologised to Marco Silva when we spoke to each other", he said. He will only get better with game time.
